Transportation and Trucking Accident Defense

Transportation and trucking industry accidents can expose a transportation company and its insurer to significant liability. Defending against trucking accident liability requires detailed knowledge of state and federal safety regulations, direct experience in high-stakes transportation industry accidents and exceptional trial skills. We represent trucking companies and their insurers in cases involving catastrophic injury, death, property loss, insurance coverage issues, and regulatory compliance matters. We have offices in Redwood City and Santa Monica, California.

Preparing for Trial From Day One

The attorneys at Coddington, Hicks & Danforth know that an aggressive defense strategy begins with a rapid response and thorough investigation beginning on Day One. With nearly 40 years of experience aggressively defending insurance companies and businesses in complex litigation, our trial-proven lawyers strategically begin building a solid defense from the outset.

The depth and breadth of our knowledge of insurance law, combined with our cutting-edge knowledge of FMCSA regulations, are vital assets in advising clients and taking decisive action in defending against a wide range of trucking litigation issues, including:

  • Driver fatigue, logs and hours of service rules
  • Driver substance abuse
  • Unsafe loads
  • Vehicle maintenance issues
  • Negligent hiring, training or supervision claims
  • Special Investigation Unit involvement and potential claimant fraud analysis
  • Weight restriction violations

We manage all aspects of the accident investigation, including scrutinizing the involvement of the claimant in the accident. We work with accident reconstruction experts, medical professionals and others to build a strong defense.
