Transportation law is vast, involving corporate insurers and transportation companies, encompassing over the road trucking and private fleet vehicles, railroad (commuter and cargo), and aviation. Our experienced transportation defense attorneys litigate accident cases involving various modes of transportation, all types of real property damage, and employment related matters such physical injuries derivative of transportation or transportation industry employment. With extensive railroad clientele, our expertise in the Federal Employers Liability Act is used daily. We collaborate with experts in accident investigation and reconstruction, engineers, technicians, as well as medical experts, all while properly protecting the results of investigations within litigation. Insurance is a key component of our practice, and our attorneys regularly litigate indemnification, defense tenders, contract and coverage issues, including the complicated relationships between the self-insured and an insurance carrier.
Though focused on transportation, more generally our team excels in case investigation and evaluation, complex motion practice, including federal preemption and conflict of laws, alternative dispute resolution, trial practice, and appellate work. Our lawyers also participate in key industry organizations such as the National Association of Railroad Trial Counsel and hold challenging certifications such as Florida Board Certification in Civil Trials.
