The heavy vehicle haulage industry requires a broad understanding of both South Australian and Federal legislation. We are the leading heavy vehicle law firm in SA and our expertise in this highly specialised area of law is recognised and utilised nationwide.
KJK Legal has been at the forefront of protecting the interests of many of the industry’s major trucking companies, including defending prosecutions brought by the relevant industry regulator, and providing advice and representation to individual truck drivers.
KJK Legal recently and successfully negotiated the withdrawal of substantial prosecutions against a heavy vehicle haulage company, involving potentially in excess of $1,000,000 in fines.
KJK Legal were also able to achieve the removal/withdrawal of many prohibition notices issued by the industry regulator, which have enabled clients to keep their fleets of trucks on the road at all times.
Having prohibition notices set aside, by the bringing of injunctions against the industry regulator, KJK Legal has also been able to save affected companies hundreds of thousands of dollars in terms of lost productivity.
Clients in the industry for whom KJK Legal act include various members of the South Australian Road Transport Association.
