Meet Attorney Matthew Wright
Matthew Wright’s vision is for the time to come when his role as a trial attorney representing people injured by dangerous trucking companies is no longer needed. As a truck injury lawyer, he hopes he and other trial attorneys will force unsafe trucking companies out of business and that only safe and compliant companies will remain, making the roads and highways safer for the driving public. Through courts and by advocating for changes in industry standards like controls on fatigued driving, underride guards, and mandatory use of collision mitigation systems, he hopes to help achieve this vision.
Mr. Wright works to live so he can travel with his wife and four children across the country (now) and world (some day). He also enjoys driving his pick-up truck, dirt-bikes with his son, reading, going to his daughters’ gymnastics and volleyball games and is an active member of Brentwood Baptist Church, where he is a member of Committed LifeGroup which meets most every Sunday.

Types of Truck Accident Cases
Trucking injury cases are usually not caused by simple driver error. Most often, root cause analysis reveals critical errors and unsafe decisions at the corporate level of contract motor carriers, shippers, brokers and insurance companies. The objective of the truck accident lawyer is to investigate and understand how these decisions caused the damages and what should have been done to prevent them.
- Negligent hiring, retention and entrustment of drivers.
- Fatigued driving and hours of service violations.
- Vicarious liability of contract motor carrier for acts of independent motor carrier.
- Negligent selection of independent contractors by shippers or brokers.
- Negligent maintenance of equipment.
- Impaired or intoxicated driving.
In addition to trucking accidents, WRIGHT LAW PLC also handles general personal injury including car accidents and general liability claims.
