We consistently recover multi-million-dollar verdicts and settlements for our clients – well above the $750,000 motor carrier insurance minimum.
Our truck accident law firm has more attorneys certified in truck accident law by the National Board of Trial Advocacy (NBTA) than any other firm in the nation.
Over half of our truck wreck lawyers are Commercial Driver’s License (CDL) holders. This allows our truck accident firm to bring technical knowledge and hands-on commercial motor vehicle experience to your case in ways other personal injury law firms can’t.
We put your best interests first, every time. As part of our process, we seek to identify your specific goals for litigation — monetary and otherwise — and build a case strategy around those goals.
We represent and fight for commercial vehicle accident victims nationwide. With offices in Ohio, Tennessee, and Oklahoma, our personal injury attorneys have represented truck crash victims in over half of the nation’s states.
Even when you partner with another personal injury firm, The Law Firm for Truck Safety attorneys are still fighting for you. Our legal team is at the forefront of trucking litigation and safety reform, teaching other attorneys how to become better truck crash attorneys, holding leadership positions on various safety advisory boards, testifying before Congress, and providing counsel to other attorneys on truck accident law, winning case strategy, and current policies.
As tireless truck safety advocates, the fight to end traffic violence often takes us outside of the courtroom. At the Federal and state levels, our firm works with and supports various safety advocacy groups, lawmakers, and truck crash victims in their fight to build a safer trucking industry and a world where fatal and catastrophic truck crashes cannot happen on US roads.
What Our Clients Are Saying
If I could, I’d give them 10 out of 5 stars.
Matt is a fantastic attorney, and he also became my friend. I couldn’t be happier about the outcome of my case.
After being involved in a semi-truck accident, I needed a law team nothing short of THE BEST.
Andy and Amy proved this to be true. Highly recommend!!!!!!!!!
As a lawyer, I know that specialized knowledge of trucking regulations is important to case success. You do not want to hire a firm that takes trucking cases once every few years or settles every case. If you are looking for a truck crash lawyer for a serious injury or wrongful death, don't even consider other options. This is the firm you want to hire.
They are amazing people with huge hearts and went above and beyond every step of the way. I would recommend this firm to everybody needing help.
You guys are the best! Andy, Amy, and the rest of the team were able to get me more than double what I was expecting!
Matt and Traci really go above and beyond for their clients. They were always a text or phone call away. My dad never had to wait hours or days for a response. Thank you once again!
A pleasure to work with and the best at identifying coverage when others can’t!
I could not be more confident in these attorneys and their ability to competently and compassionately prosecute cases on behalf of their clients.
We know the Rules. We know the Law.
We know Trucks.
To effectively pursue a truck accident lawsuit, your personal injury attorney must live and breathe commercial trucks.
In trucking cases, the negligent trucking company often banks on truck crash victims selecting a personal injury attorney who doesn’t understand the rules and regulations truck companies must follow.
This oversight can cause victims to leave millions on the table, find only a fraction of justice, and, worst of all, leave them with unanswered questions, halting their ability to heal.
Six Board-Certified Attorneys in Truck Accident Law
NBTA Board-Certified Truck Accident Law attorneys demonstrate exceptional knowledge of truck safety laws at both the federal and state levels. This distinguished accreditation is held by less than 1% of all licensed attorneys, and six out of our eight truck accident lawyers can claim this distinction.
The Law Firm for Truck Safety touts more attorneys Board-Certified in Truck Accident Law by the National Board of Trial Advocacy (NBTA) than any other law firm in the country. To obtain this certification accredited by the American Bar Association is no small feat. Our NBTA board-certified attorneys passed a rigorous exam with high scores and received recommendations from truck industry experts, judges, and opposing counsel.
Publications and Lecturers about Truck Crash Law: We Wrote the Book
As a firm, we believe in service and giving back to the legal profession. Because of our commitment to service, our attorneys are often invited to teach other truck crash attorneys how to best advocate for their own clients and educate the public on the importance of improving safety within the trucking industry.
- Attorneys Michael and Rena Leizerman co-wrote “Litigating Truck Accident Cases,” a three-volume deep dive into building and arguing truck accident injury cases.
- Our attorneys have written pieces for various legal publications including AAJ Trucking Litigation Group’s Journal of Trucking Litigation, Trial Magazine, and more.

Five Attorneys Licensed to Drive Commercial Trucks
Only 1% of drivers in the U.S. hold a commercial driver’s license (CDL) allowing them to operate tractor-trailers. At the Law Firm for Truck Safety, five of the attorneys hold Class A CDLs. We believe that these licenses — knowing first-hand the perspective of the truck driver — give us the ability to bring technical knowledge into our cases and advocate for our clients in ways other lawyers can’t.
Our CDLs give us insight into the intricacies of driving these giant vehicles and the concentration and skill required to do so safely. This training also allows us to more accurately understand how our clients’ crashes happened and how they could have been avoided. The knowledge a CDL brings us is baked into our comprehensive approach to trucking cases and the facts of our clients’ cases.

Crash. Not Accident.
The word “accident” is often used to describe devastating truck crashes. Many people in need of legal help will search for a “truck accident lawyer near me” or the “best truck accident attorney”. We even use “accident” in our site name.
However, most truck “accidents” are not accidents at all.
Truck crashes are often caused by distracted, fatigued, poorly trained, or downright dangerous truck drivers and/or the unsafe business practices of the trucking companies and brokers that hired them. Every semi-truck accident lawyer at The Law Firm for Truck Safety is committed to helping those who have been irreparably harmed in commercial vehicle crashes and committed to providing education to the public that crashes are not accidents.
We Are Safety Advocates
Inside the courtroom, our truck wreck lawyers fight for truck accident victims. Outside of the courtroom, we are tireless truck safety educators and advocates.
Our goal is to reduce the number of 18-wheeler and other commercial motor vehicle fatalities to zero through a variety of initiatives and legislation reform.
Supporting and Partnering with Safety Advocacy Groups
We believe education and public awareness are necessary to effect meaningful change in trucking safety regulation and industry reform.
Our truck crash attorneys proudly partner with and support numerous non-profit highway safety organizations in their efforts to reduce trucking accident injuries and fatalities to zero. Our goal is to create safer roads and safer commercial vehicles so that devastating trucking collisions can’t happen in the US.
