Getting Your Claim The Attention it Deserves Can Be Hard

- It’s hard to navigate the claim process by yourself
No One Should Lose Income Because of Downtime.
Our Lawyers Know the Trucking Industry!
Did you know? You may have the right to recover lost income for the days your equipment was down and unable to operate. Being an owner operator means there are a lot of things you have to do on your own. Recovering lost income due to an accident shouldn’t be one of them. We help owner operators and fleets recover money lost through not-at-fault accidents. We also handle insurance subrogation. We pursue property damage losses, including diminution of value, as well as lost income.
We offer free consultations. Call us at (904) 278-7688 or click “Get Started.” We look forward to speaking with you!
Getting Started is Easy

From there, we’ll have a free consultation to talk about the details of your claim. Most owner operators are entitled to downtime coverage but face resistance or misinformation from the insurance company or large self-insured trucking company.
Get the Team You Need
Our lawyers focus on exactly this kind of work, so you’re in good hands. Once you complete the initial paperwork, we get to work helping you recover the downtime pay you’re entitled to.
Get Paid for Downtime
Losing income because of downtime should not be something an owner operator just accepts. There are systems in place to ensure someone else’s negligence doesn’t impact your earnings, and we help you through this process.

The Unique Nature of Downtime Claims
Downtime, Lost Revenue, Loss of Revenue, Loss of Use, Lost Income, and Business Interruption Losses are terms often intermingled within the insurance industry.
When your equipment isn’t operating, you can’t make money. For owner operators – truckers, wreckers, rideshare or delivery drivers, it’s important to get back on the road as quickly as possible after an accident.
But…your bills keep coming even if your truck isn’t bringing in the money. Owner-operators, motor carriers, and fleets who lose the use of their vehicles following an accident are stripped of their income-making capacity, playing havoc with their livelihood and bottom line profit.
Large losses of revenue add up quickly. It’s important to take action immediately.
