I have a small moving business and I loaded a customers two trucks for them to drive to the state of Nevada,they claim and sent pictures of damage that happened along the drive from Maryland the state I loaded from.My insurance company said I am not covered for the damages because it was not on my moving trucks by the way they were rental trucks.I am inturn being sued for $14.000+ dollars and I need to what kind of lawyer I get to represent me on this matter there are so many kinds.I live in the Glen Burnie,MD area.
Hello,
.
In order to defend against this, you would need a civil litigation attorney. Most attorneys will be able to handle this type of lawsuit as it is basically a breach of contract claim that is alleging negligence in packing the trucks.
.
But since the property was presumably secure when you loaded it, they will have a hard time proving you were responsible for the damage once they left. They could have swerved back and forth, braked too suddenly, ran into a hole, etc. so there could be numerous reasons for the damage.
