Damage and Cargo Claims

Kelly Hart attorneys have extensive experience dealing with legal issues regarding the transportation of goods. We represent clients in a wide range of cargo-related matters, including claims involving equipment breakdown, stolen cargo, safety issues and violations, property damage and collisions, contaminated cargo, and delivery issues. Carrier liability for loss or damage involves the interaction of federal and state laws and regulations (and often international treaties), contracts of carriage, bills of lading and tariffs. Different liability laws and rules apply to truck, rail, air, maritime, and multimodal transportation. We are experienced with all aspects of filing and collecting cargo claims.
