Daniel Coker Horton & Bell’s transportation attorneys have defended trucking companies in personal injury actions throughout the entire State of Mississippi since the firm was founded in 1946. In recent years we have also defended these companies in Alabama, Tennessee and Louisiana. Our transportation attorneys have been deeply involved in planning and developing seminars for trucking clients.
Members of the transportation practice group have represented automobile and truck leasing companies, automotive retailers, contract haulers, drayage and delivery companies, manufacturers of automotive components, manufacturers of passenger cars, motorcycle manufacturers, over-the-road tractors, specialty carriers and tire manufacturers, as well as common carriers such as railroads, bus lines and river barge lines.
Daniel Coker attorneys have also successfully litigated commercial disputes, contract disputes, design claims, environmental issues and hazardous materials matters, labor and employment matters, loss of revenue matters and property and casualty losses within the transportation industry.
Through our membership in ALFA International, the firm’s Transportation practice group actively participates in ALFA’s rapid-response GO TEAM which is available to provide immediate access to legal support for clients.
