Trucking and Transportation

SWEENEY & SHEEHAN’S Trucking and Transportation practice group represents local, regional and national trucking companies, shippers and rental vehicle companies, in addition to providing counsel to the Firm’s many clients which write motor vehicle insurance. Cases involving this practice group range from routine rear-end motor vehicle accidents to complex Uninsured/Underinsured matters to trucking accidents involving catastrophic loss. The Firm is staffed to provide effective, efficient and professional representation on all cases.

As in the Firm’s other practice groups, the Trucking and Transportation Group regularly litigates all types of motor vehicle matters, from Common Pleas Arbitration matters in Pennsylvania to jury trials in State and Federal Court. Our attorneys are responsive and adherent to the particular needs of each of our clients, and each case receives the same high level of attention and advocacy. We also assist our clients in identifying appropriate cases for referral for Alternative Dispute Resolution.

Our attorneys are involved with and speak regularly to groups including the Pennsylvania Bar Association and the Defense Research Institute on various topics, including electronic discovery, limited tort, expert issues, and litigation strategy. SWEENEY & SHEEHAN has published a Motor Vehicle Claim Handling Guide for its clients, and offers seminars on claim handling and defense issues.
