Construction Litigation

JKLF’s litigation team maintains a specific focus on trucking litigation.  We combine our investigative skills with our trial skills to give our clients the best advantage for a successful trial defense or settlement.  JKLF represents local to multi-national transportation companies.   

JKLF trial attorneys are experienced with a vast number of highly sought-after experts, and we pride ourselves in retaining the best possible expert immediately following the accident.  We promptly evaluate all evidence and issues to drive our litigation strategy.  JKLF attorneys are well-versed in reconstruction, fatigue, human factors, and failure to train issues that commonly arise in transportation cases.  JKLF attorneys understand the investigation procedures, science, and liability defenses utilizing forensic techniques, toxicology, behavior studies, computer modeling, and GPS tracking.  Our attorneys have a comprehensive understanding of the Federal Motor Carrier and Department of Transportation regulations.  JKLF routinely is one of the first parties to investigate an accident.  We have experience with spoliation prevention and accident scene preservation.  Our team has successfully obtained numerous verdicts based on the strength of our own investigation.  We consistently position our transportation clients for favorable settlements, summary judgment, or defense verdicts.
