Accident Book

Our Truck Accident Attorneys Understand Trucking Law and Federal Regulations

Fried Rogers Goldberg LLC has recovered millions of dollars in verdicts and settlements on behalf of truck accident victims to help get their lives back on track. We took our knowledge and experience in trucking cases and published Understanding Motor Carrier Claims, 3rd edition as a legal treatise on trucking law. This resource is considered by many attorneys and practitioners to be an authoritative text on the subject.

Referring attorneys often associate with our firm to handle complex personal injury or wrongful death trucking cases throughout the country — especially in the Southeast. We enjoy the opportunity to work with other lawyers on these cases, and part of our motivation in publishing Understanding Motor Carrier Claims was to help provide insight to other practitioners in this area of law. The biggest mistake a lawyer can make is to treat a trucking case like a typical automobile accident case. Victims injured by tractor-trailer accidents deserve to be represented by a firm that understands and appreciates the complexities of trucking law. We believe that every trucking case needs a trucking attorney.
