We are proud to announce new driver and fleet legal services for ICSA members through a new partnership with U.S. Legal Services (USL). USL is well known throughout the trucking industry for the safety and business tools they provide for the single-truck professional driver and small fleets.
USL understands the individual needs of both single-truck operators and small fleets, including the regulations they face, and has developed the CDL Defender specifically for this segment of the trucking industry. This includes the Professional Driver Business Advantage at no additional cost to the driver. USL’s success in assisting drivers and small fleets has resulted in an average 88% reduction in violation severity points and therefore lower SMS scores of drivers USL has represented. USL also has achieved a 95% success rate in winning DataQ challenges, helping keep both driver and fleet CSA scores down.
What this means for ICSA members is that USL will represent members who sign up for USL services and their drivers for all moving, non-moving, and DOT violations, all the way up to and including potential trials, using properly licensed and credentialed, local attorneys. USL’s data shows local attorneys who are familiar with the local jurisdiction, prosecutors, and judges obtain better results. Its nationwide network of attorneys is experienced in working with professional drivers and go the extra mile to find supporting evidence to better represent the driver’s side of the case.
