The transportation section of Leake & Andersson has been specializing in trucking industry defense for over two decades. We are a team of dedicated and hardworking professionals who share a common purpose: championing the rights of the trucking transportation industry. Based upon our decades of experience defending trucking companies, we are able to impart our wisdom from past experiences so our clients can plan for their future. We aggressively investigate claims and defend drivers, motor carrier and trucking companies, and their insurers. Our practice is varied and includes defense of the following types of claims:

  • Personal Injury
  • Property damage
  • Contract disputes
  • Damage to goods and cargo claims
  • Regulatory and Administrative matters
  • Spills and leaks of hazardous material

We also handle EMERGENCY RESPONSE. We provide emergency and accident response throughout Louisiana and Mississippi. Day or night, someone is on standby and ready to assist with any emergency. The emergency response offered includes fatality, catastrophic injury, alleged hazardous release, and cargo claims. Our transportation team is available at all times (click HERE for our GoTeam contact information). Our ability to depart is usually immediate and our arrival at the scene per distance is estimated as follows:

15 miles        15 to 30 minutes
30 miles        30 to 60 minutes
50 miles        50 to 90 minutes
