Trucking & Transportation - Cowles Thompson Law Firm - Dallas/Fort Worth Lawyers

Cowles Thompson has a long history of representing transportation and trucking companies, their drivers, and employees. Our attorneys have handled litigation involving personal injury and property damage related to truck accidents and as well as litigation related to the business of trucking. We have also assisted with evidence gathering/preservation and risk management issues in high-profile, high-damage-exposure accidents. We represent motor carriers, private fleet operators, logistics companies, and private motorists — both directly and through their insurers. This representation includes transportation companies in the trucking and logistics industries. In addition to handling disputes after they arise, our attorneys work with clients to try to prevent disputes from happening and/or to assist in resolving the disputes before they reach the litigation stage.
