Transportation and Trucking

Low, Ball & Lynch represents major automobile and trucking clients in vehicular liability cases. We also represent auto rental firms and equipment rental businesses in a wide variety of claims. Low, Ball & Lynch is well versed in the specialized requirements of trucking regulations.

LBL’s Transportation & Trucking Advice and Litigation Group is firmly committed to the principle of informed, cost-effective representation and litigation management for its clients. At the outset of each representation, this group engages in a cost/benefit analysis with the client which attempts to identify and quantify the benefits and risks associated with the representation, including its costs and a range of reasonably foreseeable outcomes in light of the client’s expressed goals. Alternatives, including various alternate dispute resolution mechanisms, are considered at the outset and at each stage of the representation. The ultimate objective is a well-informed client, a cost-effective representation and a satisfactory result.

J. Stephanie Krmpotic manages the Transportation and Trucking Group. Ms. Krmpotic has been with Low, Ball & Lynch for over 26 years, and is entrusted by long-standing clients to litigate complex and high-exposure cases to verdict. Her preparation and strong advocacy has made her effective, particularly with catastrophic injury cases, complex issues and volatile dynamics.
