U.S. Legal Services helps motor carriers improve their bottom line while providing a value added benefit to the workforce –through safety.
We bridge the gap between members and attorneys, offering access to a network of more than 10,000 highly qualified, highly vetted attorneys across the U.S., specializing in representing professional drivers.
For nearly 50 years, we have been committed to making legal representation affordable and accessible for everyone. Our members receive the widest array of legal services, with attorneys’ fees fully covered in nearly all cases.
Since our inception, our mission has been to remain the broadest and most comprehensive group legal insurance provider nationwide.
According to the FMCSA, 5.7M citations were issued to truck drivers last year.
To remediate this issue:
• We offer a distinct recruiting advantage over competitors without legal assistance for their drivers. We provide coverage for drivers—whether on the job or in their personal vehicle—and their spouses.
• We partner with company Safety Departments, ensuring prompt and accurate notification of roadside events, thereby enabling proactive steps to remedy problems before they become real liabilities. Plus, we eliminate the predisposition of guilt in civil liability cases by winning the underlying traffic charge in an accident.
• Our plans aid drivers in maintaining clean driving records, which helps mitigate rising premiums and improve DOT Safety Scores. Our teams are knowledgeable of State and Federal laws concerning compliance issues, which allow fleets to minimize the ramifications of varied convictions and maintain a satisfactory DOT and CSA SMS ratings.
On average, we save our transportation members $1.6M per year in legal fees.
By partnering with us, you can feel confident that your workforce will receive the trusted, high-quality legal services that we have become known for over our nearly 50 years of service.
