While the hope is always that it can be avoided, the reality is that disputes arise and lawsuits happen. The transportation industry is no different. What is important to understand is that transportation litigation can be unique and complex. It regularly involves relatively unknown, highly intricate set of laws, rules and regulations. The unique nature of transportation litigation makes it even more critical to have lawyers the experience and deep understanding of transportation law and litigation.
