Automotive & Trucking Liability Lawyers in CA

Providing strategic insurance defense in Fresno

California has long been known as a state with some of the most dangerous roads in America. It’s no wonder, then, that insurance companies in California have such a large number of claims to deal with — and many of those claims turn into legal disputes between the injured party and the third-party insurer.

With a more than 90-year-long track record of obtaining favorable results, the attorneys at Stammer, McKnight, Barnum & Bailey LLP have the skills to defend carriers and their insureds. Our firm represents insurance companies and self-insureds against claims for personal injury and wrongful death. The cases we handle include automotive and trucking liability claims, uninsured and  underinsured claims, personal injury claims and other insurance issues.

High-quality, reliable and thorough representation

From handling the smallest claims to the most complex matters, our attorneys strive to achieve the most practical results for our clients while containing costs. We can assist you at all levels of automobile and trucking defense. We begin each case with a thorough review of each accident, including post-accident interviews and on-scene investigations of crashes involving large commercial vehicles. We also help claims examiners make informed decisions on the validity and merit of auto and trucking claims.

We keep up to date on California and federal motor carrier safety regulations. Our in-depth knowledge of relative case law, together with the facts we have collected from the on-site crash review and analysis of witness interviews, form the foundation of our defense strategy. Stammer, McKnight, Barnum & Bailey LLP also consults with our strong network of medical experts and accident reconstructionists who assist us while we evaluate, investigate and present your case.

Prompt and cost-effective solutions

We are committed to investigating your claim as quickly as possible. If it is in your best interest to negotiate a settlement, we will confidently handle alternative dispute resolution proceedings that may include arbitration, mediation and expedited jury trials. These options can be as effective as litigation, without the added financial strain of a regular jury trial. But in the more complex and contested matters we handle, our insurance defense attorneys in Fresno also have the resources and experience to litigate your case.
