Catastrophic Accidents

When actor comedian Tracy Morgan was grievously injured as a result of a Wal-Mart tractor trailer weighing over 20 tons slamming into the rear of the van he was a passenger in, he chose us to represent him.

Our attorneys at Morelli Law Firm are experienced in representing the victims of catastrophic automobile, bus and trucking accidents. To date, we have obtained multiple million-dollar settlements and verdicts, including:

  • $11.2 million for victim suffering from brain damage after a tractor trailer accident
  • $5.4 million for motorcycle victim hit by a truck
  • $3 million for victims injured in a serious bus crash

Our experience is especially important because in commercial bus and trucking accidents, the investigation and legal issues are far more complex, time-sensitive and demanding than in an ordinary automobile accident. A number of strict federal rules come into play, including rules on mandatory training, licensing and rest breaks for bus and truck drivers. Failure on the part of the driver and/or the company to observe these regulations can be catastrophic.

If you or someone you love was injured by a commercial driver’s failure to adhere to the regulations intended to protect drivers and passengers in standard vehicles, you have the right to take legal action and recover money damages.
