As a United States Marine Corps veteran with over 22 years of service, Morgan Adams' military experience prepared him for the "battle" of truck wreck litigation. He now represents the injured victims of crashes that involve large trucks or buses, fighting for those who have been harmed by the negligence and recklessness of others. He has represented victims of truck wrecks in 43 states.
As the founding trucking attorney behind Truck Wreck Justice, Mr. Adams has successfully taken on cases against some of the nation's largest trucking, bus, and their insurance companies. He is also a longstanding member of the Multi-Million Dollar Advocates Forum, open only to attorneys with a history of multi-million dollar verdicts and settlements. He is the past President of the Academy of Truck Accident Attorneys.
Additionally, Mr. Adams is has been selected multiple times as both a SuperLawyer, and Top 100 SuperLawyer, Top 10 Trucking, and has been selected in the past as a member of The National Trial Lawyers, an honor available only to the top 100 trial lawyers in each state. He is also the first and only recipient to date of a Lifetime Achievement Award from the Trucking Litigation Group of the American Association for Justice (AAJ), and he received his Board Certification in Civil Trial Advocacy and Truck Accident Litigation from the National Board of Trial Advocacy.
Mr. Adams received his undergraduate degree from Bowdoin College and accepted a commission in the Untied State Marine Corps out of college. He then graduated from Georgia State University College of Law and entered active duty. After Desert Storm he left active duty and worked as an insurance defense attorney, became the head of litigation for a small boutique law firm, and then left to found Truck Wreck Justice. The firm and its attorneys have since established themselves as legal leaders in the area of large truck and bus crash litigation; Mr. Adams has lectured and written frequently on this topic throughout the nation for the benefit of other attorneys. He practices today with a sole focus on personal injury cases that involve large vehicles like tractor-trailers, buses, logging trucks, dump trucks, tanker trucks, box trucks and other commercial vehicles.
