Transportation / Trucking

The Transportation / Trucking Group at Marks, O’Neill, O’Brien, Doherty & Kelly has successfully managed, resolved, and defended hundreds of claims against trucking and transportation companies and their respective drivers. In many years of litigating claims at every level, from property damage and minor injuries to catastrophic losses and multiple fatalities, we have obtained advantageous settlements, favorable verdicts, and dismissals for our clients. Our experience in evaluating all aspects of a claim and our aggressive approach to pre-litigation investigation and management results in prompt, fair, and cost-efficient resolution of claims. From the time of the accident response and investigation through the final resolution, our comprehensive, hands-on approach enables our clients to manage every potential claim.
