In the hours following a serious trucking accident, it is crucial to a successful defense that investigators and experts are immediately deployed to preserve important evidence, collect information, and talk to witnesses.  CBJ has a team of transportation lawyers with extensive experience managing post-accident investigations and litigated matters who are ready to lead your on-site investigation.  With the assistance of readily available Rapid Response counsel, accident re-constructionists, field investigators, and independent adjusters, CBJ’s Trucking and Transportation Team can immediately begin the investigation of a serious accident to ensure that our clients’ interests are protected, and critical evidence is preserved to ensure success in any subsequent litigation.

CBJ’s Trucking and Transportation Team represents a large number of insured and self-insured trucking, transportation and logistics companies throughout the state of Ohio in personal injury, property damage, cargo claims, and regulatory matters.  CBJ’s legal team provides representation in state and federal courts, with a special emphasis on litigation involving tractor-trailers, buses, and various forms of mass transit.

If you have an immediate need for legal support following an accident or other incident, call the Crabbe, Brown & James LLP’s Go Team Hotline and you will be connected with an experienced transportation attorney with access to experienced field adjusters, engineers, accident re-constructionists, and other transportation industry experts.
