Transportation Law

The lifeblood of the United States economy is undoubtedly the commercial transportation industry. Ensuring fast, safe, efficient, accessible and convenient transportation, however, is a daunting task for all commercial transportation carriers, brokers and shippers. The unique nature of the claims brought against the transportation industry, as well as the regulatory scheme affecting the industry, requires a distinct familiarity and knowledge of the current transportation issues.

The lawyers of DeLashmet & Marchand, P.C. are dedicated to assisting the industry in all areas of regulation and liability concerns. We represent major inter- and intrastate carriers, brokers and shippers and have managed and performed investigations for motor vehicle accidents including multiple fatalities and defended such actions when they have resulted in litigation. We also have experience in prosecuting and defending cargo claims in both federal and state courts.  We are available on a 24 hour, 7 day a week basis for accident investigations and have accident reconstructionists on-call to assist us.

Transportation and Trucking Law

The unique nature of truck accidents and transportation law calls for an attorney who can cater specifically to these types of cases. Our firm has over forty years of combined experience representing clients in transportation law. We stand by the importance of the trucking industry and are dedicated to helping our clients fight for their rights.

Cargo Claims

We are committed to helping the trucking industry regarding liability or regulation concerns, including the prosecution of and the defense against cargo claims in federal and state courts. Because these claims involve extensive documentation, the involvement of insurance companies, determinations of liability and complex federal statutes, our expertise puts us in a unique regional position to assist in such matters.

Early Evaluation of Your Case to Help You Fight Later

Our firm offers twenty-four-hour, seven-day-a-week assistance to any truck driver who has been involved in an accident. If you have had an incident with a cargo trailer, or if you have been involved in a collision with another driver, we can appear onsite to assess the accident. Our lawyers will speak with police officers, take pictures, and investigate the accident. We have access to reconstructionists who can investigate the accident, recreate the scene, and with this information help determine the accident's cause. If your case goes to litigation, the investigation will already be done and the evidence gathered.
