Over 50 years of combined experience handling truck accident cases
While many attorneys claim to handle truck accident cases, at Fried Rogers Goldberg LLC, we dedicate more than 75% of our practice to handling only truck accident and commercial vehicle cases. Joe Fried, Brian “Buck” Rogers and Michael Goldberg — the Truck Accident Attorneys — have more than 50 years combined experience.
Our firm is based in Atlanta. However, our truck accident lawyers are licensed not only in state and federal courts in Georgia, but also in South Carolina, Florida, Alabama, Tennessee and New York. Law firms from across the country bring us in on trucking cases because of our expertise in this area of law, and we have handled trucking cases in more than 20 states.
We are the only law firm in the country to publish Understanding Motor Carrier Claims, a nationally recognized 108-page legal treatise on truck accident law. We’re proud to say that we wrote the book on truck accident laws – literally.
Whether you live in Atlanta or in any other city or state, we are the attorneys you need to contact if you or a loved one has been seriously injured or killed in a tractor-trailer accident. We have built our careers on helping people like you.

How do I choose a truck accident attorney?
Every truck accident case needs a truck accident attorney.
It is imperative that injured victims and their families choose the right attorney to represent them in their claim against a trucking company and its insurer. Many attorneys advertise that they handle truck accident cases, but often they do not have the background and experience to handle these complex matters. You might end up settling your case for a fraction of the actual value.
We have put together this checklist of questions to verify that you are choosing the right attorney. Don’t settle for an attorney with anything less than these qualifications.
