Trucking and Transportation Subrogation
Ohio, Illinois, and Indiana Subrogation Attorneys Increase Recoveries in Trucking and Transportation
The commercial trucking industry occupies a significant position in the national economy. Yet, insurance companies that underwrite may suffer significant losses because they do not pursue viable opportunities for subrogation recovery. One obstacle to subrogation recovery is that so many insurance attorneys only understand typical auto accident subrogation and do not fully grasp the additional complexities of trucking cases. However, Keis George LLP has been litigating claims for trucking companies and their insureds for more than 30 years. We are well versed on the state and federal regulations governing motor carriers and their drivers. Our specific knowledge and experience allow our attorneys to guide the client to recovery while protecting their financial interests.
Experience with a wide variety of trucking industry subrogation cases
Losses by trucking companies encompass far more than highway accidents. At Keis George, we regularly help our clients recover losses in cases involving:
- Spoiled or damaged cargo
- Damaged tractor and/or trailer
- Limitation of liability clauses
- Liquidated damages
- Liability for traffic accidents
Whatever the scenario, when a trucking company sustains a loss, there is a strong presumption that the company or its driver is to blame. However, thorough investigations often reveal third-party entities that are liable for losses, including loading companies, maintenance companies, negligent motorists, and others. Our firm has the resources to investigate your losses and identify viable avenues for subrogation recovery.
