In the trucking industry, it is quite common for people to hear about suing truck drivers for injuries or damages, but did you know there are lawyers who represent truckers for business interruption? It is so commonplace in our society that you can easily google how to sue a trucker or see huge billboards with smiling attorneys advertising the same when driving down the road. Now, the playing field has been leveled as expediters can find lawyers to champion them and their business. Owner operators in the expediting field have a big concern going out on the road as small business owners. A single crash could quite literally put an expediter out of business or in an exceeding amount of debt trying to get their truck fixed and paying for legal fees. Imagine everything gone in an instant because someone was not paying attention. Accidents happen, but they have devastating consequences for all parties involved. Truckers should heave a big sigh of relief knowing now that there are attorneys that represent them for downtime.
