Gerard J. Dragna and C. Michael Parks of the Trucking, Transportation and Automobile Liability and Defense practice at Mouledoux, Bland, Legrand & Brackett recently attended the 26th Annual TIDA Seminar in Austin, Texas. The 2018 Seminar spanned October 3 to October 5. Our “Wheels” team is actively involved in the Trucking Industry Defense Association (TIDA) Trucking Subcommittee.
TIDA, or the Trucking Industry Defense Association, is a nonprofit association with members devoted to sharing knowledge and resources for defense of the trucking industry. Founded in 1993, TIDA has become the organization of choice for over 1,600 motor carriers, trucking insurers, defense attorneys and claims servicing companies. The organization is committed to reducing the cost of claims and lawsuits against the trucking industry. Members work to develop strategies and share knowledge to defend the trucking industry in personal injury, property damage, workers’ compensation and cargo claims. TIDA members advocate on behalf of the industry’s interests.
Our Trucking and Transportation Practice
Our “Wheels” team has decades of experience, handling every aspect of claims for trucking and transportation companies as well as personal auto, commercial auto and trucking insurers. They have successfully litigated personal injury, death, and property damage claims arising out of vehicular accidents, as well as cargo claims throughout Louisiana and Mississippi. Our attorneys have worked directly as staff counsel for auto insurers and have represented some of the largest trucking companies and insurers nationwide.
They also have extensive experience handling catastrophic trucking, transportation and commercial auto accident cases, one of a few firms that do this. Our firm’s 24/7 Cat-Loss rapid response team provides quick and necessary protection to motor carriers, commercial drivers and their insurers for accidents involving fatalities or serious injuries. Our prompt investigation on the front end reaps dividends for our clients when the lawsuit gets filed. We have a network of seasoned investigators and accident reconstruction experts throughout Louisiana and Mississippi who use cutting-edge technology to handle field and remote investigations.
