Trucking & Transportation
Halloran & Sage represents trucking and transportation companies throughout the industry, including national, regional and local self-insured trucking companies, as well as less-than-truckload (LTL) carriers, parcel express companies and household goods movers. We have particular strength in defending these companies in accident litigation, including cases involving catastrophic injury and wrongful death. We also provide transportation companies with legal counsel on matters involving federal regulatory compliance, cargo claims, driver error, negligent hire, driver fatigue and log book issues, logo/placard liability, breach of contract, agency disputes, hazardous materials, workers' compensation, labor and employment, insurance coverage and development of truck terminals.
We are highly skilled in defending litigation involving maintenance problems mechanical defects and product-liability issues. We represent trucking and transportation clients in all phases of litigation in federal and state courts. We also counsel trucking and transportation clients on risk management, helping them implement measures to avoid liability and litigation.
Our representation of these companies is strengthened by our ability to draw upon our firm's broad base of knowledge and expertise. In working with trucking and transportation clients, we regularly consult with lawyers within our firm who concentrate on insurance law, labor and employment, environment and land use, business and commercial Law and appellate advocacy.
As leaders in trucking and transportation defense litigation and trial work we are on the steering committee of the Transportation Practice Group of the American Law Firm Association (ALFA). We are active members in the American Trucking Association (ATA) and the Trucking Industry Defense Association (TIDA). Our attorneys regularly publish articles analyzing the significant and evolving legal issues that affect the trucking and transportation industry.
