Transportation and Warehouse Liability


Our Transportation Practice Group provides coverage advice and opinions, defense of first and third-party claims and recovery representation in many inland marine and wet marine insurance areas, including motor truck cargo liability, broker liability, contingent cargo liability, warehouse legal liability, ocean cargo, scheduled floater coverage, installation floater and riggers legal liability.

When personal property in the custody of transporters (land, sea or air) becomes damaged or lost, the claims of the owners of the property against the transporters and others are governed by the transportation contract and applicable law (Carmack, COGSA and Warsaw). Defense and prosecution of these claims requires specialized and extensive experience. Our Transportation Practice Group attorneys have both. Our experience includes:

Scheduled property coverage, installation coverage and riggers legal liability coverages provide a unique combination of first and third-party issues. The inland marine policy conditions, coupled with these specialized and sometimes manuscript coverages, require inland marine experience and careful handling. Our Transportation Practice Group attorneys have the necessary skills and experience, and are sensitive to the unique needs of the insurers and insureds in these coverages and claims.
