While moving company disputes take many different forms, one law governs all claims for damages and liability: the Carmack Amendment.
When goods are shipped across state lines, a federal transportation law called the Carmack Amendment governs. As a federal law, the Carmack Amendment preempts any breach of contract, negligence or fraud claims you may have under state law. Many attorneys do not know how to properly bring claims and end up sacrificing their clients’ rights to compensation in the process.
At The Bach Law Firm, LLC, we are attorneys who are well versed in transportation law. Located in Las Vegas, we have successfully helped clients throughout Nevada and the United States protect their financial and property interests when carriers damage or lose goods during transportation.
Liability For Interstate Transportation Carriers
If your shipment of goods was damaged, lost or stolen or is being held in an attempt to extract more money, you have a legal claim to damages under the Carmack Amendment. However, this amendment has many complex rules, procedures and timelines. One misstep and your right to compensation may be forfeited.
The initial claim you file with the transportation company will limit your ability to recover in court. It is important to consult with lawyers who are experienced in the nuances of the Carmack Amendment before making a claim for losses.
At The Bach Law Firm, LLC, founding lawyer Jason Bach is an experienced litigator. For more than 10 years, he has been representing clients in state and federal court. He knows what it takes to build a claim under the Carmack Amendment and protect his clients’ financial and property interests.
At our firm, we assist with every stage of your legal action. We draft initial claims and negotiate with the transportation company on your behalf, bring suit in the appropriate court and build strong claims that prove that you are entitled to compensation for lost or damaged goods.
