TORT REFORM

Overview

The ATA Insurance Task Force (ITF) assists motor carriers in finding affordable insurance and chose tort reform as a means of attacking the underlying cause of high insurance rates: outrageous and unfair verdicts caused by a deeply flawed judicial system.

The ITF focuses its efforts on those reforms most important to the trucking industry (e.g., elimination of joint and several liability, caps on punitive damages, the recognition of collateral sources, the admissibility of non-use of seat belts) and works closely with state trucking associations to ensure that trucking industry interests are included in state tort reform efforts.


American Trucking Associations is the largest national trade association for the trucking industry. Through a federation of 50 affiliated state trucking associations and industry-related conferences and councils, ATA is the voice of the industry America depends on most to move our nation’s freight. Trucking Moves America Forward.
