Trucking Industry Defense
We are routinely retained by national insurance carriers and self-insured companies to represent truck drivers and trucking companies in the defense of claims and lawsuits related to trucking accidents. We are often engaged immediately after an accident to put boots on the ground to investigate the facts surrounding the accident and to secure relevant evidence and documentation. A working technical and practical knowledge of issues unique to these specialized claims and the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Regulations are critical to successfully defending and evaluating these claims.
Our firm has been a long time member of the Trucking Industry Defense Association (TIDA). We continuously work with consulting experts in the fields of accident reconstruction, human factors, biomechanics and industry standards of care on a nationwide basis. Founding shareholder Mike Matteuzzi has been a frequently requested speaker by various industry organizations to address topics related to trucking litigation. We are uniquely qualified to address trucking related issues having successfully defended hundreds of trucking cases.
We frequently represent our clients in a variety of lawsuits filed in state and federal courts throughout the Midwest. We represent clients in cases involving claims for personal injury, automobile negligence, product liability, construction defect and premises liability. Our team has the necessary experience, knowledge, dedication and drive to obtain the best possible results for our clients. We bring this attitude, focus and attention to detail to every case. This requires our team to take a personal interest in the outcome of litigation and to make an unwavering commitment to full and complete preparation. We work harder, take ownership in the litigation and consistently produce results that deliver value to our clients.
Catastrophic Injury Litigation
When an automobile, industrial or other accident results in a death or catastrophic injury, our clients have peace of mind knowing that we are ready to address all aspects of the liability and damages issues that are relevant to the defense of these kinds of cases. Alleged catastrophic injuries can range in scope and degree. These injuries can include allegations related to closed head injuries, traumatic brain injuries, orthopedic injuries, loss of a limb, paraplegia, quadriplegia and death. When litigating these kinds of injuries, we routinely work with consulting experts in the fields of orthopedic medicine, vocational rehabilitation, life care planning, neurology, psychology, neuropsychology and/or economics. Our familiarity with a nationwide network of relevant experts allows us to aggressively advance and to fully protect the interests of our clients in catastrophic injury cases.
