As every commercial trucking and transportation company knows, the transportation industry is a complex web of state and federal laws and regulations governing nearly every aspect of a company’s operations. Accidents involving commercial motor vehicles often result in serious injuries or fatalities, and the subsequent litigation can be costly, time consuming, and potentially damaging to the company’s ability to do business. What’s more, juries often have preconceived biases against tractor trailer drivers and trucking companies, and plaintiff attorneys often pursue trucking companies as the “deep pockets” – regardless of whether the company was responsible for the accident.
