Williams Montgomery & John offers a team of trial lawyers dedicated to the representation of transportation industry clients.  We have represented owners and operators of trucks, trains, buses, vans, automobiles and airplanes. Our clients range from small, independent operators to Fortune 500 companies.

We currently serve as regional counsel for YRC Worldwide, Inc., one of the largest trucking companies in the United States.  We also have served as national trial counsel for TruGreen Lawncare and The Terminx International Company.  The cases involve personal injury and property damage claims arising out of claims alleging operator error, improper loading, improperly secured cargo, and equipment failures.

The firm is well known for handling catastrophic transportation cases and obtaining excellent results.  We vigorously address both the liability and the damages issues in the cases we handle.  In our view, defense counsel too often focus exclusively on liability issues, risking an excessive verdict should liability be found. 

We have also consulted with transportation companies on the application of CSA 2010, the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Act, Carmack Amendment issues, and other aspects of state and federal transportation law.
