Our Expertise


Trucking Investigations & Regulations

Regulatory bodies ensure that trucking companies meet basic regulations for vehicle maintenance, truck driving times, and other factors which can increase the risk of trucking accidents.


Uber, Lyft, and Ridesharing Accidents

Services like Uber and Lyft are not regulated as heavily as taxis. Because of this, car accidents involving rideshare drivers and passengers can become very complicated.
