Trucking and Transportation

Bassi Edlin Huie & Blum attorneys have extensive experience in handling all aspects of trucking and transportation matters, including accident investigation, catastrophic personal injury claims, wrongful death claims, environmental concerns, product and manufacturing claims, cargo losses, contribution and indemnity matters, and client hiring issues.  Our trucking and transportation practice includes the defense of motor carriers, construction equipment vehicles, petroleum transportation trucks, and ride-share defense.

The firm’s experience includes trying complex catastrophic trucking and transportation cases.  We have become particularly knowledgeable on the subject of traumatic brain injury, which often arises in trucking and transportation casualty matters.  Our extensive trial experience empowers us to quickly analyze key issues in these cases and execute effective discovery plans, putting our clients in a position of strength during mediations, or pre-trial settlement conferences. When necessary and consistent with our client's goals we do not hesitate to take cases to trial, where we have an impressive track record of success.  We have obtained dismissals and summary judgments by arguing a lack of foreseeability, or the remoteness of the connection between our client's activity and the plaintiff's injury.

Using strong working relationships with experts in relevant disciplines we efficiently uncover the key issues to mount a strong defense.  The firm provides our trucking and transportation clients with risk management advice to protect against high-risk exposure.  And we know how to work effectively with insurance companies to reduce risk and achieve favorable outcomes in these high-stakes cases.
