Motor vehicle crashes, trucking accidents, and heavy machinery incidents happen at all hours of the day and night and can result in serious bodily injury and substantial property damage. From the initial investigation through trial, Melick & Porter has the expertise and resources to evaluate the needs of the particular situation, provide critical advice, and defend against any claim.
Our attorneys have years of experience working with trucking, bus, and other transportation companies and their drivers. We stay apprised of changes in the regulatory, business, and technology aspects of the transportation industry, and we provide pre-claim preventative advice. When accidents do happen, we are prepared to immediately respond to protect our clients’ interests and gather critical information. We work with accident reconstructionists, engineers, and other experts to achieve favorable results. From threatened litigation through trial, we vigorously defend our clients.
We are proud members of the Trucking Industry Defense Association (TIDA), the Defense Research Institute (DRI), and the Risk Management Society (RIMS), which are committed to transportation safety and claims reduction.
