The nature of the claims brought against the transportation industry, and its current regulatory scheme, is truly unique from a legal perspective. This area requires lawyers to be familiar and knowledgeable with the current issues facing the industry. Litigators need to keep informed on current transportation law issues and must have experience in litigating issues such as driver fatigue and the now prevalent negligent hire/retention claims.
Lashly & Baer represents trucking and transportation companies and their employees in all these legal matters. This includes catastrophic injury, death, property damage, breach of contract and cargo claims in Missouri and Illinois.
Our experience allows us to provide valuable services and informed opinions to trucking companies, their insurers and employees. You do not have to wait for answers, because we have trusted experts available to assist with accident reconstruction, toxicology, medical and psychological concerns, and analysis of economic damage and impact.
Lashly & Baer has defended personal injury claims and filed third-party claims when our investigation revealed a defective product or a highway design defect that contributed to the accident. To defend claims we use the latest technology such as computer-animated reconstruction. We also utilize the retrieval, interpretation and evaluation of Electronic Control Module (ECM) or “black box” data now available in some newer-model passenger cars.
