Turner Padget’s Trucking Group is in tune with the needs of the trucking and transportation industries. Our attorneys represent intrastate and interstate carriers, global delivery corporations, waste management companies, and railroads. By participating in industry organizations such as the Trucking Industry Defense Association (TIDA) and the South Carolina Trucking Association (SCTA), our attorneys keep abreast of the latest developments in these industries.
We can handle catastrophic injury claims, property damage claims or hazardous material claims beginning with the date of an incident. Turner Padget’s Emergency Response Team allows clients to contact an attorney after normal business hours to respond to the scene of an accident. These same attorneys can assist clients with pre-suit investigations and defend them if litigation is initiated. Once a suit is filed, we can efficiently represent our clients through all aspects of discovery and trial, due in part to having five offices located throughout the state.
