Liability Defense for America’s Trucking and Transportation Industry Leaders

Daniel Coker’s transportation attorneys have represented motor carriers and their drivers in personal injury and wrongful death actions throughout Mississippi since the firm’s founding in 1946. In recent years, Daniel Coker attorneys also have represented motor carriers in Alabama, Louisiana, and Tennessee. We have developed and hosted seminars for transportation-related clients and are actively involved with organizations in the industry. 

Our transportation attorneys are well-versed in the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Regulations and understand their impact on litigation. We are experienced in defending against claims arising under the FMCSR and related claims of direct liability. Our attorneys have obtained take-nothing defense verdicts in high exposure cases involving claims of wrongful death and significant personal injury and have successfully defended the verdicts on appeal.  

Beyond the trucking industry, Daniel Coker attorneys represent other parties commonly involved in transportation litigation, including: 

  • Automobile and truck leasing companies
  • Automotive retailers
  • Contract haulers
  • Manufacturers of automotive components
  • Manufacturers of passenger cars
  • Motorcycle manufacturers
  • Specialty carriers 
  • Tire manufacturers

Daniel Coker attorneys actively participate in ALFA International’s rapid-response GO TEAM, which provides immediate access to legal and forensic support for companies in the transportation industry.
