Surviving an accident involving a 60,000+ lb. commercial truck is an uncommon event. Besides the loss of a loved one, the other passengers who may survive are likely to need lifelong medical care for physical and emotional injuries.
Our firm dedicates itself to representing those involved in a truck accident, because a family’sÂ world is often changed forever. When Joe, Buck, and Michael decided to dedicate their practice of law to only representing victims of trucking collisions, they knowingly accepted theÂ responsibility to help put a family back togetherÂ as best as they could.
Fried Rogers Goldberg exclusively represent victims who have sustained a catastrophic injury or loss of a loved one due to trucking accidents, severe carÂ accidents, and other tragic incidents involving careless or reckless behavior. Our lawyers have builtÂ a remarkable record of success over the years, which has earned our firm a reputation for legal representation that delivers the results a family requires in order to carry on. We are often asked to join trial teamsÂ by referring attorneys to act as lead counsel in catastrophic injury cases, frequently when the trial may only be days away.
Below is a list of recent verdicts and settlements. Many of these people have suffered catastrophic injuries, and to protect the privacy and decency of our clients, many of the details are withheld. Successful outcomes like the ones below cannot undo what has happened, but they can provide a level of comfort and support to make the recovery easier. The purpose of the results below is to show consistent recoveries so you can have faith in knowing you in good hands.
We can never promise a successful outcome in any case (and you should be fearful of any lawyer who does promise or guarantee), but we do promise to giveÂ every case we accept 100% of our ability and resources. While we are headquartered in Atlanta, we have represented families around the country, so if you or a loved one has been injured in an accident like these, contact Fried Rogers GoldbergÂ today to get the help you deserve.
