The transportation attorneys at Martin Tate understand the complex and constantly changing regulatory structure that governs the operation of the transportation industry as well as the economic and legal challenges it faces. We are committed to the effective representation of both insured and self-insured transportation companies in all aspects of personal-injury and property-damage litigation. Martin Tate also works closely with transportation intermediaries such as forwarders, brokers, and logistics consultants.
Our firm has represented transportation-related businesses, including motor carriers, railroads, and maritime vessels, in matters ranging from crossing accidents to cargo claims to collections and contract disputes. This includes wrongful-death and personal-injury defense, disputes alleging common-carrier liability, interaction with the U.S. Department of Transportation, insurance-coverage analyses, labor and employment matters, litigation management of defense, claims of negligent hiring/retention, adherence to safety regulations, state sales use and excise litigation, accident investigation, and workers’ compensation matters in the transportation industry.
Martin Tate’s transportation practice group has also created a Rapid Response Team that is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, to immediately respond to accident scenes and other catastrophic losses. If you would like access to the Rapid Response Team, please contact Lee Piovarcy, Lew Wardlaw or Earl W. Houston,II.
