The transportation industry impacts virtually every aspect of the economy. Companies responsible for moving goods and people throughout the country have achieved an impressive safety record, but calamities still occur. When they do, transportation companies and their insurers turn to lawyers at BatesCarey LLP because of our depth of experience representing the industry.
Our attorneys are very familiar with transportation-related insurance issues, both as lawyers and through previous experience as insurance company claims professionals. Our learning curve is extremely flat, allowing us to quickly delve into a matter and aggressively pursue positive results from the outset.
Transportation companies do more than move goods and people. Our experience in this industry also includes natural resources exploration, onshore and offshore operations, and the labyrinth of maritime law as it interfaces with federal and state laws.
BatesCarey LLP has addressed a broad spectrum of cases, often where our clients face multi-million dollar exposures, including: numerous derailments and collisions resulting in deaths, injuries and evacuations; coordination of the defense of mass tort claims; wildfire losses; FELA preemption; and the defense of personal injury claims arising out of transportation accidents.
We represent the interests of insurers responding to claims against their policyholders, and work directly for transportation entities to defend claims and lawsuits. We always work with our clients to control the impact that costs can have on the ultimate success of a matter.
