About Charles Carr

Mr. Carr has practiced law, focusing on matters involving the transportation industry, since 1977.  In 1997, he and 7 other attorneys formed the Carr Allison law firm which now has office in 4 cities in Alabama, Chattanooga, Tennessee, Gulfport, Mississippi, and Jacksonville & Tallahassee, Florida.


Mr. Carr has been recognized by Best Lawyers and Superlawyers for his work as a defense litigator.  He and his firm represent over one-half of the Transport Topics Top 100 Motor Carriers.  In addition to trying cases in 66 of Alabama’s 67 counties, Mr. Carr has served major motor carriers and motor carrier insurers as national trial counsel and has worked with many TIDA attorneys defending the transportation industry throughout much of the United States.


For the last 10 years, Mr. Carr has built one of the largest databases of “nuclear verdicts.”  He regularly writes materials for and presents seminars to transportation groups, motor carriers and the insurance industry which analyze verdicts in the transportation industry, their causes and prevention.


In 2016, Mr. Carr was honored to receive the John T. Biezup Memorial Service Award which acknowledges “dedicated service, excellence and commitment to the defense of the trucking industry.”


Brief paragraph on why you would be the ideal candidate for the Board.


I have been fortunate to represent the transportation industry for over 30 years.  I have represented both self-insured motor carriers and insurers of those motor carriers. In the last 15 years, I have worked with both the insurance industry and large and medium-size motor carriers on a national basis handling catastrophic injury cases in over 30 states throughout the United States while working with some of the finest attorneys as local counsel.  I believe that the network of transportation attorneys, clients and associations with whom I have worked help me understand the issues that our industry faces over the next several years.
