Experienced Trucking Trial Attorney based in Atlanta

Any Atlanta truck accident lawyer who views a catastrophic commercial truck or bus accident as just a big car wreck is dangerously naive. Truck and bus operations are governed by complex sets of federal and state regulations and involve much specialized technology. Adequate preparation of such cases requires extensive knowledge of motor carrier law and technology, industry practices, and unique insurance features.

His practice is focused on high end personal injury and wrongful death cases, primarily resulting from motor carrier accidents - commercial trucks, buses, tractor trailers, big rigs, dump trucks, tanker trucks, cement trucks, straight trucks, delivery trucks, log trucks, etc.

Ken is chair of the American Association for Justice Motor Vehicle Collision, Highway & Premises Liability Section, was formerly on the national board of the Interstate Trucking Litigation Group is former chair of both the Southeastern Motor Carrier Liability Institute and the Georgia Insurance Law Institute, and has taught other lawyers from coast to coast about aspects of litigating trucking cases.

  • Our son Chris was in a horrible car accident May 2013, and was left with a Tramatic Brain Injury. Ken was told about the accident and came to our rescue... While we were tending to Chris, Ken tended to all of Chris's billing issue's. We did not have to deal with the stress of all the financial part at all. Ken took care of that for us. That in itself is a blessing to me. We felt like we were not just a client to him but a friend as well, and that means a lot. Or it does to us. Ken, you are and always will be held with the utmost respect and Love in our hearts.Debra G.
  • Ken Shigley was referred to me by a member of my church after my daughter was killed in an automobile accident. She pulled out in front of a tractor trailer and he ran into her passenger door which killer her on impact. The truck was going a little over the speed limit but she was still at fault. Ken was still able to get a settlement for her children. Ken is a great attorney and he actually cares about his clients. Barbara
