The Transportation lawyers at Vaughan Baio & Partners help clients – trucking, bus, car rental and transportation network companies, motor carriers and other industry participants – resolve a broad range of claims. These include those that involve motor vehicle accidents, personal injury, assaults, wrongful death, property damage and cargo and freight losses.
Our team handles uninsured and underinsured motorist claims, third-party liability and first-party benefits actions, bad faith claims and coverage disputes. We have extensive experience with incidents involving everything from soft-tissue injuries to paralysis and wrongful death in state and federal courts, and before arbitration and mediation panels. We work with engineers, investigators and technical experts in the fields of accident and biomechanical reconstruction and occupant and vehicle kinematics to assess liabilities and develop defense theories.
In addition, we regularly help clients in high-profile and high-exposure cases navigate challenges to their brand and reputation, inside and outside of the courtroom.
Clients rely on our in-depth analyses, hands-on approach and cost-effective and pragmatic responses that align the resolution strategy of each individual claim with broader strategic objectives and business goals. They appreciate our prompt response to accidents – when necessary arriving on site within hours of an incident – to work with private investigators, accident reconstruction experts and local law enforcement to ensure that relevant evidence is identified and preserved and that potential witnesses are identified and interviewed. Most importantly, clients know that we will always zealously defend their interests in a timely and efficient manner.
