GKHS’s commercial transportation team is skilled in handling the many legal facets of the transportation industry. From corporate formation to contract negotiations to insurance coverage claims, we can assist transportation providers with a variety of transactional matters and code compliance.
We regularly serve as trial counsel in catastrophic loss matters throughout California. We are experienced at handling a variety of complex accidents, from high-speed freeway collisions in the Central Valley to pedestrian strikes in dense urban areas of the San Francisco Bay Area. We have an extensive knowledge of the federal motor carrier safety statutes, accident reconstruction, the “reptile” theory, policy limit demands, and jury pools across California. GKHS also provides attorney malpractice defense and appellate representation in commercial transportation-related matters.
Our attorneys provide rapid response services to transportation carriers involved in catastrophic events. We regularly lead liability investigations, develop evidence preservation plans, and conduct statutory safety compliance assessments. We also assist our clients with post-collision state and federal agency audits and inspections.
Our attorneys are actively involved in Trucking Industry Defense Association and the Defense Research Institute. We closely follow the trends and challenges facing the industry, from technology to COVID to regulations.
