Motor Truck Cargo Liability
Motor Truck Cargo liability insurance provides truckers liability coverage, during loading and unloading and during intrastate and interstate transit, for damage to property in their custody, care and control. Truckers can be held liable as either common, contract or private carriers, and there is both federal and state law governing a trucker’s liability for damage to cargo. Our insurance lawyers and defense attorneys have had significant experience in handling Carmack cases involving federal regulations and statutes governing trucker’s liability for damage to property while in intrastate or interstate commerce. Our lawyers have also handled a number of intrastate cargo insurance claims and coverage cases involving claims against both warehousing and trucking entities for damaged, missing and stolen cargo. Additionally, because today cargo can move, in a single thru transit, by ocean, air and truck, our experience as attorneys in all those modes of transportation provides great benefit to our clients.
