Trucking and Transportation

At Young Moore and Henderson, we have been partners with the Transportation Industry for more than 30 years.  We represent a large number of insured and self-insured trucking and transportation companies throughout North Carolina in personal injury, property damage, cargo claims, and regulatory matters. Our legal representation extends to state and federal courts with a special emphasis on litigation involving tractor-trailers, buses and various forms of mass transit. Our Transportation team can assist you in matters involving the numerous federal and state schemes affecting the transportation industry, including claims arising under the Carmack Amendment. The firm has substantial trial experience in virtually all facets of transportation litigation, from routine matters to complex, multi-party catastrophic losses and death claims.  In addition, our attorneys offer our Transportation clients the advantages of a full-service business law firm, with supporting counsel available in the areas of business law, regulatory and administrative law, workers’ compensation, employment, employee benefits, and commercial real estate.
