Defending Clients In Trucking Litigation Since 2002
The trucking industry is heavily regulated, necessitating counsel that understands the many rules and regulations – especially in complex litigation. For more than 20 years, Cosmich Simmons & Brown, PLLC, has defended clients throughout the nation from trucking and transportation claims, many of which involved multijurisdictional litigation from multiple plaintiffs. Based in Jackson but serving the Southeast, we take a comprehensive approach that includes an investigation, assessment of damages and analysis of liability.
Just a few of the clients we represent include:
- Transportation companies
- Independent contractors
- Truck owners and operators
- Insurance companies
In addition, we routinely defend clients accused of violating regulations by entities such as the Mississippi and Louisiana Department of Transportation and the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Regulations.
Capable Of Detailed, High-Tech Investigations
Due to the high-value injuries and damages that these cases involve, we understand the need for a thorough and comprehensive investigation. Our attorneys have extensive training and experience that allow us to respond to the most complex of trucking and transportation matters.
We are well-equipped to investigate the crash site, take measurements and photographs, interview witnesses and other parties, and preserve evidence. Frequently, we implement cutting-edge technology to assist in discovery, document analysis and trial presentations. Having thoroughly gathered and analyzed the facts, we undertake an aggressive defense of ensuing litigation.
Strategically Weighing Litigation Versus ADR
We evaluate each case on its merits. If a case warrants fair and reasonable settlement value – especially if liability appears probable – we use alternative dispute resolution to negotiate, mediate or arbitrate a solution. However, we frequently see claims that likely involve fraud or exaggeration of damages. Our attorneys are experienced litigators who do not hesitate to take any case to trial when it is in your best interests.
