Experience that can only come from handling the investigation and defense of hundreds of accidents involving commercial motor vehicles provides our clients with a strategic advantage when it comes to advancing their interests in claims and lawsuits. Our evaluation of each assignment begins with a thorough analysis of the issues impacting liability and damages. We then work with our clients to formulate a strategy to reach a practical resolution of every matter. Whether the claim warrants pre-litigation settlement discussions, mediation, or an aggressive defense through trial, our litigators have the experience to meet those needs.
