Emergency Response

Emergency Response Team — 24/7 Risk Management Support

The Transportation Practice Team has established an Emergency Response Team to provide clients with crisis management assistance for unexpected incidents arising from the transportation of goods or cargo.  Emergency Response Team members are ready to respond to accident scenes across the Pacific Northwest on short notice in order to preserve critical evidence, interview witnesses, and communicate with law enforcement when the severity of the accident warrants such action.  Our Emergency Response Team provides clients with a timely and informed plan of action to minimize the value of any claims and our client’s potential exposure.
