Serious Damage And Catastrophic Injuries

Truck accidents are devastating. Due to their size, speed and huge blind-spots, trucks are likely to cause more destructive accidents on Kentucky roadways than any other type of vehicle. If you were injured or you have lost a loved one in a truck accident, we encourage you to schedule a free consultation at our firm as soon as possible.

Truckers might lose control and cause accidents because of numerous factors, including:

  • Overloaded truck
  • Unbalanced load
  • Worn tires
  • Tire blowouts
  • Speeding
  • Sleeping at the wheel
  • Tailgating
  • Use of cellphone while driving
  • CDL violations
  • Distracted drivers
  • Brake failure

Distracted driving and driver fatigue are among the largest contributors to motor vehicle accidents. Contact our firm as soon as you are able.

Aggressive Trucking Company Attorneys

At the Hazard firm of Jeffrey R. Morgan & Associates, we understand that trucking companies will work quickly to protect themselves, their drivers and their bottom line. They will send attorneys, insurance adjusters, industry experts or even accident reconstructionists to the scene of the collision to strengthen their own case. They might even attempt to pressure you into signing documents before you have a chance to discuss your case with an attorney. Before you sign anything, let us review it.

Truck Drivers Face Heavy Regulations

Truckers must maintain a commercial driver's license (CDL). Trucking companies are required to maintain detailed records of the driver's history, truck maintenance schedules and miles logged. The drivers themselves must record miles, time spent driving, cargo and weight in their logbooks. If a driver logs too many miles or spends too much time behind the wheel without taking a sleep break, he or she might be in violation of federal regulations.

Personal Experience Leads To Thorough Understanding

Our founding attorney, Jeffrey R. Morgan, understands the stress and worry that his clients are feeling. With two horrible vehicle accidents in his past, it gives him a clear insight into what the firm's clients are facing. He understands the questions that keep you up at night:

  • What's going to happen to my family?
  • What's going to happen to my future?
  • How are we going to survive?
  • Will my loved ones ever be the same?

If you were injured, you've lost a loved one or a family member has suffered a serious injury, it is important to work with a lawyer with whom you can communicate. At Jeffrey R. Morgan & Associates, we understand what you're going through and we can provide the legal guidance you need.
