Godin & Baity's transportation lawyers have been handling a range of legal services for commercial motor carriers. Our transportation law team has extensive experience handling litigation involving commercial motor carriers, pursuing and defending freight claims and evaluating regulatory compliance issues.
Trucking accidents can result in property damage, severe injuries and even death. At Godin & Baity we recognize that trucking accidents present unique issues, which are not necessarily associated with a typical motor vehicle accident. Such issues include debunking the prejudices against truck drivers and trucking companies, aggressively defending negligent maintenance, negligent hiring and supervision claims, and addressing governmental regulatory issues. Our Rapid Response Team is prepared to immediately respond to the scene of an accident in order to ensure that all necessary action is taken to secure key physical evidence and appropriately investigate an accident scene. The best defense often entails being proactive on the front end of a claim.
We regularly work with accident reconstructionists, toxicologists, physicians, rehabilitation specialists and economists to effectively work-up each individual case.
Given that the transportation industry is constantly evolving, we recognize the importance of tracking the changes to motor carrier safety regulations and the resulting impact to freight claims and liability scenarios. We understand how the safety and security regulations of the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) come into play in the atmosphere of trucking, multimodal and large fleet operators and advise our clients on compliance issues.
Godin & Baity's transportation law team members are active in associations such as the Trucking Industry Defense Association (TIDA), Transportation Lawyers Association (TLA), and the Colorado Motor Carriers Association (CMCA). Through participation in these associations, we monitor regulatory changes specific to trucking firms and large fleet operators and keep abreast of the changing landscape of transportation law.
