Aggressive Defense For Trucking And Transportation Liability Claims
For the past 15 years, The Law Firm of Connors & Connors, P.C., has defended hundreds of personal injury claims brought against the country’s largest car and truck rental and leasing companies. As experienced insurance defense lawyers, we are intimately aware of the strategies and techniques used to effectively defend such claims.
Unfortunately, in New York state, Section 388 of Vehicle and Traffic Law makes the owner of a permissively operated vehicle vicariously responsible for its negligent operation. As a result, our clients, as renters and lessors of motor vehicles, are “target” defendants for plaintiffs in personal injury claims. A zealous defense, from pleadings through trial, is imperative to protect and defend our clients from such claims.

Our Detailed Approach To The Law
The retention of professional engineers trained in the field of accident reconstruction and physicians/engineers trained in both medicine and the mechanics of dynamics is often invaluable in the defense of trucking and vehicle rental cases.
In addition, lease agreements often present obligations on behalf of the lessees who insure to the benefit of the lessors regarding the defense and indemnification of personal injury claims.
At The Law Firm of Connors & Connors, P.C., we pride ourselves on our ability to assist our clients in defending the sometimes-exaggerated claims being asserted against them, including distracted driving defense. Early intervention, prevention of “spoliation,” diligent discovery, retention of expert witnesses and surveillance of all weapons used to protect our clients where the plaintiff “targets” them. That experience includes a great deal of work in federal court as many of our clients are not domiciled in New York.
