San Antonio transportation representation Attorneys

With more than 60 years of combined experience, our Texas transportation lawyers at Shelton & Valadez, P.C. represent companies throughout Texas that are facing transportation issues. We represent various parties within the transportation industry, including trucking companies, motor carriers, owner/operators and insurance companies in the trucking or transportation industry.

Protecting the Interests of Transportation Businesses from Initial Investigation to Resolution

If you are facing a legal issue related to a transportation issue, the result of the case can have a major impact on the driver, the owner operators, and/or the motor carriers that are involved. If personal injuries have resulted from a trucking accident, we can help you fight for your rights against the opposing party who is pursuing a monetary claim against your trucking company.

At the outset of an incident, it is imperative to be proactive in the investigation process. Our attorneys have the ability to develop effective, reliable legal solutions in auto and transportation liability claims. Our attorneys are experienced and skilled in defense work in cases such as auto accidents causing property damage or serious injury, fatal transportation and trucking accidents, and motor carrier liability claims. We also handle subrogation claims that occur when one person takes the rights or remedies of a person involved in the legal case against a third party.

As your attorneys, we will work with your team to achieve your goals with minimal risk. We will observe conditions and make recommendations to eliminate or mitigate risk; draft and negotiate enforceable agreements; and use alternative dispute resolution (ADR) methods to resolve contested matters. When a significant dispute presents itself, it is our responsibility to avoid court or to arrive there in the most advantageous position possible.

From the court room to arbitration forums, businesses need solid legal counsel navigating litigation matters that may arise from time to time. Some matters call for the advice of a lawyer with relevant experience in the litigation sector. Whether your matter has to do with a transporation accident, property damage, or a transportation fatality, having the assistance of an experienced litigation attorney is critical to protecting your business.

At Shelton & Valadez, P.C., we have a strong knowledge of the various federal regulations that govern transportation, which are established by the United States Department of Transportation Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration. Our attorneys represent businesses from initial investigation, to pre-suit matters, to litigation, and through resolution.

Mediation As A Solution

Mediation provides a facilitated negotiation environment that is collaborative, efficacious, cost-effective and more confidential than litigation. It is ideal for businesses and individuals who like to fashion their own remedies to problems and maintain as much autonomy as possible.
