Transportation Law

VLTA’s Transportation Law Practice Group is experienced in all areas of transportation law and draws interdisciplinary expertise from our other practice groups, including Commercial Law and Product Liability, as well as our general defense practice.

We have represented hundreds of individuals, businesses, motor vehicle carriers, shippers, coach and bus companies, trucking/shipping companies, freight system providers/operators, construction equipment and rental car agencies. For years we have effectively resolved hundreds of transportation matters in cases involving catastrophic injuries, quadriplegia, paraplegia, traumatic brain injury, wrongful death, bodily injury, large-loss property damage, insurance coverage, indemnity, and subrogation issues. Additionally, we handle cases involving claims of defective road construction and design. Our firm also represents airport districts, pilots, flight instructors, mechanics, fixed base operators, and aviation insurers.

Due to our experience with these varied types of cases, we have established a network of highly regarded expert transportation industry witnesses and expert consultants.
