Casualty Defense Litigation

Our firm has extensive national experience defending all varieties of corporate clients and insureds. Our team of attorneys have handled direct defense litigation matters throughout the country and have been able to obtain successful dispositions in diverse areas of litigation.

In addition, RSG attorneys have extensive national experience with all matters involving the transportation industry, including all types of commercial motor vehicles. We are one of the premier law firms in the country with respect to trucking liability. Our attorneys are experienced, capable litigators representing trucking companies, charter bus companies and operators of other commercial vehicles in tort claims and suits.

We also presently serve as national counsel for an insurer of long-haul trucking exposures, which present substantial questions of coverage for bodily injury and property damage liability, and which typically present MCS-90/90B issues, under Commercial Auto, Trucking, Motor Carrier and Bus coverage. We have litigated transportation and marine coverage matters in several U.S. Courts of Appeals as well as multiple state courts.      

Our attorneys are admitted to practice in the U.S. Supreme Court as well as inferior Federal courts and in the bars of most states. Given our depth of experience in commercial vehicle litigation, we are able to proactively advise trucking clients regarding safety and training issues and provide the best possible defense when accidents occur. Moreover, that knowledge translates into a proactive, reasoned, aggressive defense in accident claims and cases involving severe injuries and fatalities.

In defending all of these types of cases for our insureds, our litigation team, which consists of lawyers with extensive years of court room experience, excels at achieving the best results for both the insured and the insurance companies. Our attorneys are well versed and experienced in all aspects of litigation. Despite having such a large national presence, we continue to maintain a cost efficiency that is second to none and strive to offer very competitive rates with minimal costs.
