Trucking Lawyers for Owner-Operators and Fleets
We work in the style of a collection agency, but with the force of a law firm. We work on a contingency fee basis. No upfront cost is required to begin a case through our office. Our active hands-on approach during the early stages of collection allows for a better chance of resolving the matter without litigation.

We Know Trucking!
Our staff knows the trucking industry. We help owner operators and fleets recover money lost through accidents and mechanical negligence. We also handle insurance subrogation. We pursue property damage losses, including diminution of value, as well as lost income. You may have the right to recover lost income for the days your equipment was down and unable to operate.
Downtime, Lost Revenue, Loss of Revenue, Loss of Use, Lost Income, and Business Interruption Losses are terms often intermingled within the industry. When rolling assets are not moving, income is not being produced. Owner operators lose income while equipment is sitting still. However, their businesses continue to have fixed expenses. Owner-operators and motor carriers who lose the use of their trucks 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.
