Illinois Transportation and Logistics Contracts Attorney

Illinois Transportation and Logistics Contracts Attorney

Get the protection you need by working with Attorney Marc J. Blumenthal.

Drafting contracts for transportation and logistics can be a very complicated process. Prior to 1996, there were strict and uniform federal regulations on the steps that needed to be taken in the event of a truck accident, freight loss or cargo damage. However, today many private contracts eliminate the applicability of these regulations.

As a result, smaller businesses, whether shippers or truckers, are often at the mercy of larger companies when it comes to contract terms concerning charges, liability and cargo loss. To prevent something like this from being a business-busting disaster, you need to make sure your company is fully protected.

Consult with the Law Offices of Marc J. Blumenthal today by calling 847-808-7092 or contacting us online.

If you are shipping items that are more valuable than what the trucking company will cover in case of an accident or loss, you will need to negotiate better terms or find other ways of insuring the goods. Even if you demand that the carrier covers the full cost, they still may try to charge you too much. There are also certain nuances involved that may limit carriers’ liability, such as whether or not they followed specified requirements.

Making sure your company is protected in the event of a loss of freight could be the difference between the success and failure of your business.

Transportation attorney Marc Blumenthal works with companies across Northeastern Illinois, including Buffalo Grove, Wheeling, Forest Lake, Rolling Meadows and Riverwoods.
