Trucking Accident Attorneys with Proven Legal Expertise.
Fraud in the transportation industry has had a devastating impact on shippers, freight brokers and motor carriers over the last several years. A lot of these are small businesses that rely on cash flow to keep the doors open and one instance of fraud can shut them down.
We´ve developed some tried and true strategies here for our clients to defend against this type of fraud and avoid the devastating effects. I would be happy to share these strategies with you if you give us a call.
Use of Independent Contractors as Drivers for Trucking Companies
My name is Peter Doody and we represent trucking companies. Many motor carriers elect to use independent contractors as drivers. If not done correctly, the use of independent contractors can lead to litigation problems down the road, including misclassification lawsuits. We have been successful in assisting our clients in steering clear of potential legal problems when using independent contractors.
If you are a large or small trucking company and need assistance with regard to using independent contractors as drivers, we will be happy to speak with you.
