Motor Vehicle Liability

Chartwell Law attorneys defend national and regional insurance carriers, insureds, and self-insured companies in matters concerning vehicular accidents. Our clients range from some of the largest and most successful companies with operations either in multiple locations or who must travel within and out of state to sustain their business operations. These companies include companies with motor vehicle fleets or small independent contractor drivers who make deliveries or transport cargo. As a result, our liability attorneys have developed unique experience handling multi-state and multi-jurisdictional claims as well managing claims filed in a different state outside of our clients’ locations.

In the coverage area, our experience extends to matters involving motor carrier, trucking, commercial and non-commercial vehicles as well as policies relating to property, general liability and cargo claims. Our attorneys provide coverage opinions for our insurance clients on a wide range of transportation-related issues. We also represent our insurance clients in declaratory judgment actions that arise from coverage disputes. We also assist our clients in drafting and reviewing terms and conditions for bills of lading, contracts of carriage, broker agreements and other shipping documents, as well as policy language vehicle risks.

Our attorneys handle all aspects of motor vehicle claims involving personal injuries and wrongful deaths, including complex matters such as catastrophic injuries, chain collisions involving multiple plaintiffs, and under riding accidents. For matters that result in NTSB investigation, we provide a comprehensive suite of services that rely on our understanding of the challenges such inquiries can pose to risk management. We also handle claims concerning property damage and cargo claims that involve all types of shipments.

Our experience in the field has resulted in the steady accumulation of experts who have proven their effectiveness through not only their technical expertise but through our use of their testimony in both depositions and at trials. We consider our experts to be a vital part of our litigation team and, over the years, our relationship with them has created unmatched accessibility and efficiency, which contributes to bringing a claim to a favorable conclusion.
