(June 27, 2022) - The patchwork of state laws that impact transportation-related claims can create substantial headaches for companies that operate across state lines. In the immediate aftermath of an transportation incident, it is critical to know the local rules and regulations regarding statutes of limitations, negligence and liability standards, injury thresholds, damages caps, and other important factors for establishing early defenses and a winning case strategy.

To assist companies in navigating this web of laws, Lewis Brisbois' National Transportation Practice attorneys have developed "cheat sheets" for most of the United States, with more coming soon. Simply visit our Transportation Claims By State page and click on a blue-highlighted state on the map to view the 2-3 page guide for the particular state in question. See all the available guides in one PDF here. You can find a link to this page on our Transportation Practice page.

We will update this page with guides for every state in the country as they are developed. If there is one currently not available that you would like urgently, please reach out to your usual Lewis Brisbois contact, or visit our Transportation Practice page to find an attorney in your area.
