Koenig Jacobsen attorneys have a breadth of trucking law experience, including the successful defense of clients in catastrophic injury claims from multiple-vehicle tractor trailer collisions, wrongful death claims, products claims, as well as various contract disputes.
This includes the rapid-response securing of evidence from key witnesses, working with law enforcement and controlling of accident sites to ensure successful results. For example, firm attorneys secured an early dismissal in a $15 million multi-party claim based on alleged defective brake systems, which were blamed for a 17-vehicle truck accident resulting in 2 deaths and injury claims by 10 separate plaintiffs.
In the firm’s trucking products liability practice, its attorneys have served as California counsel for the nation’s largest manufacturer of auto-hauler trailers in various injury, products and fire claims in state and federal courts in California. The firm’s trucking experience includes claims involving brain injuries, fire investigations and severe burns, delivery/property loss disputes and Federal Motor Carrier Act regulatory issues.
In addition to litigation and a successful trial record, Koenig Jacobsen can assist with various transactional matters, including Freight Agreements and other contract issues, in many cases before they escalate into full-blown litigation, limiting defense costs and indemnity exposure.
We can also handle trucking industry issues concerning auto liability, general liability, premises liability, commercial umbrella or excess liability, warehouse liability, insurance claims, and claims related to independent contractors.
