Commercial Transportation and Trucking

Historically, commercial vehicle accidents result in serious injuries and/or deaths.  Time is of the essence in responding to an accident and preserving evidence that will be critical in the aftermath of the initial investigation. Robinson Gray has extensive experience in handling the logistics associated with transportation-related accidents as our attorneys are available on a twenty-four hour basis to investigate accidents in South Carolina.  Additionally, we have the capability to enlist the services of experienced accident-reconstruction experts, engineers, transportation consultant experts and adjusters, when necessary.

At Robinson Gray, we can advise and consult with companies about federal regulations and the significance of having written policies and procedures on regular maintenance, repair, and safety issues. As the trucking industry is highly regulated, relevant information about the corporate operations can typically be obtained through a Freedom of Information Act Request. Therefore, companies need to ensure compliance with all federal and state laws and regulations.

From the accident scene to the courtroom, our attorneys are committed to providing ethical and highly professional representation at rates which are competitive and fair.
