Trusted Legal Expertise

Proven Transportation Attorneys

With over 100 years of collective experience, HFM’s Transportation Practice Group attorneys have worked with commercial transportation companies across all areas of transportation law, including trucking litigation and regulation.

Higgs Fletcher & Mack transportation trial attorneys are recognized throughout California for their expertise representing the interests of the transportation industry especially in the trial arena. Accidents involving over-the-road tractor-trailers and other large vehicles result in significant exposure to commercial carriers and their insurers. Catastrophic cases involving serious injuries and death present complex issues that must be addressed at the earliest possible time.

Higgs Fletcher & Mack transportation trial lawyers have a long history of successfully advising and defending trucking companies and risk management claim professionals in this high-stakes area of litigation. Our knowledge of cutting-edge transportation technology, document retention and avoidance of evidence spoliation are vital to the defense of transportation cases. As transportation trial lawyers we carefully track case law, regulations and national jury verdicts to best represent and advise our transportation clients. As industry professionals we are members of transportation organizations such as Transportation Lawyers Association, Defense Research Institute and the Transportation Practice Group of the American Law Firm Association.

The transportation trial attorneys of Higgs Fletcher & Mack are well aware transportation accidents often occur outside of normal business hours. As such, we have established our Higgs Fletcher & Mack Rapid Response Team. This team of trial attorneys is available any time legal help is needed.  Our rapid response to a crash scene yields an investigation which is protected by the attorney-client communication privilege and attorney work product doctrine. Further, our experienced lawyers preserve physical and electronic evidence which protects the transportation client from a future spoliation of evidence claim.

If you are facing a transportation accident in the middle of the night, our Higgs Fletcher & Mack Rapid Response Team will have an attorney at the scene investigating the accident before the sun rises.  Click here to view the complete Rapid Response Map.
