ATA Associates Welcomes Insureds of Canal Insurance Company!

In the course of working on more than 5,000 cases over the last forty years, we have been exposed to countless scenarios involving vehicle, marine and workplace accidents. Performing forensic engineering, incident investigation and advanced vehicle testing for the trucking industry has been a core focus for most of our firm's history.

As a result, we have had a unique opportunity to witness and analyze the actions and practices that create dangerous situations out on the road; while at the same time proposing alternative actions that could have prevented these incidents from occurring in the first place.

It is our hope, along with our friends at Canal Insurance Company, that the following videos and resources will inform, enhance and/or improve your own safety programs.

The links below will take you to our videos and other resources. Please use the menu items at the top of the page to visit ATA's website or to contact us with your comments or questions.
