Transportation Law

Created in 2023 by the ALFA International Transportation Practice Group members, this 50-state compendium is an important resource.

The purpose of the Compendium is to provide a comprehensive source of information for ALFAI clients concerning relevant transportation law issues across the nation. The Compendium contains a quick reference for 17 common topics relating to transportation litigation. Some of these topics include:

  • Factors determining discoverability or admissibility of preventability determinations and internal accident reports
  • State permissibility of discovery of 3rd party litigation funding files
  • Procedure for the resolution of a claim for injuries to a minor in your state
  • Benefits or detriments of admitting a motor carrier is vicariously liable for the fault of its driver in the context of direct negligence claims
  • Factors determining spoliation of physical and/or documentary evidence
  • Whether actual medical expenses paid by insurance or others is discoverable and admissible
  • Legal standard for obtaining event data recorder data from vehicle not owned by client

This data was intentionally designed only to be a general reference guide, and not an exhaustive analysis of each state’s law on these subjects. Should you have questions, please contact a member of the ALFA International Transportation Practice Group, who can provide an in-depth analysis.
