Transportation Liability

Murchison & Cumming, LLP's Transportation Practice Group handles a wide range of commercial transportation issues such as trucking and tour bus accident litigation, product liability, broker and third party logistic liability, cargo loss and damage, breach of contract and most prominently, catastrophic injury and wrongful death matters. Our attorneys routinely represent clients in state and federal courts throughout California and Nevada, including a 24 hour rapid response team which provides immediate on-scene assistance in cooperation with experts and independent adjusters to assess liability even before the skid marks have faded.

Our attorneys, led by Senior Partner Richard C. Moreno and Partner Steven J. McEvoy, advise clients on reducing exposure and liability and partner with clients to achieve realistic goals in defense of each unique matter. Our clients include large motor carrier fleets, owner operators, Third Party Logistics Brokers, and bus and class 8 tractor manufacturers.

RAPID RESPONSE TEAM

Our Rapid Response Team provides client assistance 24/7. We understand that time is of the essence and a response is needed quickly to assess the situation and gather information about the accident. Our clients have access to our team of attorneys, accident reconstruction experts, adjusters and investigators who can respond to the scene of an accident at a moment’s notice and provide continual updates and assessments throughout the investigation.

The work of the rapid response team does not end after the scene is cleared. We continue to work with the client and our experts to gather information, locate additional items of evidence for inspection and obtain statements and information from witnesses that will potentially impact the team’s evaluation of liability. The client is provided with continual real time updates as additional information is obtained at the scene and/or in the days following the accident.
