Accidents involving large trucks are usually more devastating than any other accidents on the road. Any truck weighing over 10,000 pounds is considered “large.” Semis, buses, tractor-trailers and 18-wheelers carrying heavy loads easily weigh 10,000 pounds and routinely up to 80,000 pounds. When a large truck crashes into the average car or SUV, the impact is enormous, generally demolishing the car and seriously injuring the passengers. An estimated 10% of people injured in large truck collisions die.
At the Law Offices of Morgan Adams, our injury lawyers are very skilled in dealing with tractor-trailer collisions and work vigorously on behalf of our clients to recover the compensation they deserve. We delve into the underlying cause of the accident by employing the services of nationally recognized experts to carefully investigate the accident scene, interview witnesses, take photographs and dig up evidence regarding the truck driver and trucking company.
Morgan Adams is a nationally recognized trucking expert who only represents those whose lives have been destroyed by a tractor trailer. He has been the chair of the Tennessee Association for Justice’s Tractor Trailer Seminar since 2004, and has been a featured speaker in states across the country. In 2008 alone he has taught attorneys how to handle cases involving tractor trailers in the following states: Tennessee, Kansas, Missouri, Pennsylvania, and Illinois. Many of these lectures are at national seminars, drawing attorneys from across the country to hear Mr. Adams speak.
While many truck drivers abide by the law and are safe drivers, accidents usually occur when traffic laws or safety regulations are violated or plain good sense is lacking - frequently drivers are speeding to meet deadlines, are driving long hours beyond authorized schedules or are relying on drugs to fight off fatigue.
Accident reconstructionists employing advanced technology can re-create the crash to evaluate all factors. Trucking accidents often involve multiple vehicle collisions, and a thorough examination is often necessary to clarify exactly what took place with all the vehicles involved. Once our attorneys have substantiated the facts to establish liability, our injury lawyers start devising a winning strategy to take to the negotiation table or trial.
While personal injury is a specialized legal area, trucking accidents require an even more specific set of skills. Our accomplished injury lawyers take on the trucking industry legal teams, insurance company lawyers and adjusters who have specialized in trucking litigation. Never denying a challenge, attorneys at The Law Offices of Morgan Adams have developed a reputation as the firm in Tennessee to handle tractor trailer litigation. We continuously strive to outmatch, outsmart, and outwork opposing counsel, and we relentlessly pursue the cases we accept until we achieve a favorable outcome for our clients.
