The law firm of Eckert & Associates, P.A. aggressively pursues and collects downtime claims for owner operators and fleets. We work in the style of a collection agency, but with the force of a law firm.
Our active hands-on approach during the early stages of collection allows for a better chance of resolving the matter without litigation.
We have extensive experience in a wide variety of trucking, rail, and heavy equipment claims including:
- Downtime and Loss of Use
- Business Interruption
- Physical Damage
- Cargo Damage
- Lost Contracts
- Freight Bills
- Contract Disputes
- Personal Property
- Other Out of Pocket expenses.
We work the difficult, hard-to-collect cases right along with the easier cases. We do not charge hourly for our services, but instead charge a contingency fee consistent with the industry and based on volume.
When litigation is necessary, we have a network of experienced attorneys in local jurisdictions ready to take the file to court. We work closely with them and report on their progress to you.
Status reports are available to clients 24 hours a day through our web site. When you place your first file, you will receive a private user name and password which will provide you with access to status and financial information on each of your cases.
Please look around our web site. You will find many helpful links which may assist in your recovery efforts. If you would like to learn more about the firm or would like to discuss the referral of cases, please contact Attorney Kelsea Eckert at (904) 278-7688.
