Trucking & Transportation

A variety of commercial entities, including some of the nation’s largest transportation and logistics companies, call upon Hartline Barger to provide transportation litigation defense. Our attorneys routinely handle complex litigation in defense of these trucking and transportation companies in a wide array of areas, including catastrophic personal injury and wrongful death claims, commercial litigation, freight and property claims, and labor & employment matters. We represent local and national motor freight carriers, private fleet operators, bus companies, and commercial auto insurers and insureds.

Our trucking and transportation attorneys are available 24 hours a day, seven days a weeks to respond to catastrophic losses, frequently visiting the scene of the accident to begin coordinating the investigation and other pre-litigation activities. Furthermore, our attorneys regularly present on-site educational seminars to clients, highlighting recent and emerging trends in the transportation and legal spheres.

In order to stay at the forefront of legal developments in the industry, firm attorneys are members of and participate meaningfully in all of the large transportation industry associations, with many taking active leadership roles in speaking and writing on trucking law. Our affiliations include Trucking Industry Defense Association (TIDA), Transportation Lawyers of America (TLA), Texas Motor Transportation Association, Defense Research Institute (DRI), and Claims and Litigation Management Alliance (CLM), to name a few.
