In June 2018, our firm successfully defended a lawsuit on behalf of our client, a national car leasing company, in a personal injury lawsuit stemming from a car accident. We achieved a successful result after a full arbitration hearing arguing that the federal Graves Amendment governs liability of car leasing companies where the lessee is involved in a motor vehicle accident with a third party. The Philadelphia Court of Common Pleas arbitration panel agreed that the car leasing company has no liability to the aggrieved third party in the event of an accident with its lessee.
