Insurance Carriers And The Trucking Companies They Represent
Commercial transport trucking companies and the professional drivers they contract typically have high-value insurance policies. This causes them to employ experienced insurance adjusters and attorneys to help minimize their financial responsibilities. The opposing counsel will be tough, smart and effective. We enjoy the opportunity to battle these well-funded big firm attorneys. The stakes are high, and we fight as hard as we can to combat their teams with experts, cutting-edge research and strategies we have developed over decades of litigation.
