We’ll Hold The Trucking Company Accountable For Your Losses

Thousands of motorists and truck drivers are killed or maimed each year by the negligent operation of trucks and their improper maintenance by trucking companies. At Wise Morrissey, LLC, we fully understand the responsibility that commercial truck drivers and motor carriers have to operate their vehicles in a safe and responsible manner. We also know that trucking companies must ensure that their trucks work properly.

When negligence by the driver or trucking company results in injuries or wrongful death, you can rely on our lawyers for experienced legal counsel. We have secured verdicts and settlements for individuals and families — as pedestrians or as drivers and passengers in automobiles — who suffered severe injury and loss due to:

  • Reckless driving
  • Drunk or distracted driving
  • Carrying oversized loads
  • Trucks in need of repair or maintenance
  • Driver fatigue

Our emphasis on timely accident investigation and early retention of experts is often crucial in positioning our clients for favorable settlement, summary judgment or jury verdict in death, injury or damage liability cases.
