Transportation & Trucking Defense

The attorneys at Stanton | Barton LLC defend transportation and trucking claims and lawsuits in Missouri, Illinois, Iowa, Oklahoma, and throughout the Midwest, serving as counsel for an international package delivery company. Our work for transportation and trucking clients includes handling fast response protective accident investigations, providing quick and early claim evaluations and management, and aggressively defending and trying cases to jury when necessary, all while taking into account our clients’ economic and reputational interests.

Collectively, our team of experienced trial attorneys have protected the interests of transportation and trucking companies after accidents involving catastrophic injuries for more than fifty years. From that experience, we have developed a proficiency in the complex technical and regulatory issues that transportation and trucking companies encounter during litigation stemming from accidents. We stay on top of issues our clients face through active involvement in all of the major local and national transportation and trucking defense organizations, including the Trucking Industry Defense Association.

Fast Response Protective Accident Investigations

Our transportation clients know that, following a serious accident, it is extremely important to conduct a prompt and thorough investigation to evaluate possible claims and defenses. The attorneys and staff at Stanton | Barton LLC are available at any time, 24 hours a day and 7 days a week, to quickly respond to accidents and conduct protective investigations of potential exposure. Our investigations include vehicle and scene inspections, interviews of drivers, witnesses and emergency responders, and the retention of experts to gather and interpret key evidence and crash data. When our initial investigation is complete we offer clients a prompt and detailed evaluation of potential risk and recommendations for protecting against and managing possible claims arising from the accident, to include a realistic strategy for early resolution, in most cases within days of our assignment.

Claim Management and Defending Lawsuits

Claims and lawsuits are almost inevitable after a transportation or trucking accident, regardless whether the truck driver played a role in causing the accident. Armed with the benefit of evidence marshaled in the course of our protective investigation, our clients are well-prepared to defend claims and lawsuits from the very outset. When litigation is necessary, our attorneys draw from their experience trying cases for transportation and trucking clients to formulate and implement a strategy to prepare for trial and drive each case to the quickest and best possible resolution. We also have an extensive database of investigators and experts to assist in our defense strategy, helping us save our clients’ time and money.

We Promise and Deliver

Regardless of the size of the case, we firmly believe that it is our responsibility and privilege to earn our clients’ trust and confidence at every step of the way. To that end, we promise and deliver the most responsive, resourceful and efficient representation possible.
