AUTO & COMMERCIAL TRUCKING

MRR’s attorneys engage in prompt and thorough discovery of all auto claims to evaluate the liability and damage aspects of each case. We work with capable and well-qualified experts to strengthen the defense of the action. We prepare each case from the beginning as if it will be taken to trial, remaining mindful of the fact that early resolution through direct negotiation or Alternate Dispute Resolution (ADR) is frequently the most cost-effective and preferred approach. Over the years, we have successfully litigated thousands of claims for personal injury and property damage involving all types of motor vehicles, including automobile, buses and long haul trucks. Our capability extends to non-standard insureds and uninsured motorists claims.

Our team includes a former claims professional serving the trucking industry. Our crisis management team responds immediately to the scene of serious accidents to coordinate a complete and accurate investigation of the incident leading to an aggressive and thorough defense of any resulting claims.
