When trucks stop, America stops because motor carriers are the backbone of the American economy. Our attorneys understand that agriculture, petroleum, construction, electronics and countless other industries rely on trucking companies. And trucking companies can rely on Kutak Rock. Our attorneys understand that being immediately responsive means being available whenever the client needs assistance.

A well planned and carefully prepared defense strategy is essential for any motor carrier to limit its liability and consistently reach a cost-effective litigation resolution. By conducting an immediate and thorough investigation, we are able to provide an early and cost-effective resolution when possible. Our internal resources and network of industry contacts allow us to quickly locate, document and utilize key physical evidence and witnesses. We are very familiar with the latest technology used by many carriers, and we are able to incorporate this data into our case assessment and defense strategy. We provide clients with all necessary information to make prompt strategic decisions.

Our attorneys have extensive experience coordinating, managing and developing the defense of such claims throughout the country, and through such experiences our attorneys have developed a critical understanding of the compliance regulations imposed by the Department of Transportation (DOT) and the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA).

Not only are we prepared to handle claims and disputes, but our attorneys also participate in programs and seminars focused on industry issues and prevention of these claims and disputes. We have attorneys who are active members of the Trucking Industry Defense Association (TIDA), and we have presented at industry conferences such as the ABA-Tips Transportation Megaconference and the TIDA annual meetings.
