George E. Allen, III - Truck Accident Attorney


For decades, Ted Allen has championed the rights and served the best interests of persons catastrophically injured in accidents involving large commercial trucks and buses. He has obtained substantial verdicts and settlements for families whose lives have been shattered by the loss of family members killed in trucking accidents. Ted has been listed in the book Best Lawyers of America for more than thirty years.

Ted’s meticulous trial preparation and his thorough knowledge of trucking industry regulations and practices make him a formidable adversary both in the courtroom and during settlement negotiations. In addition to his impressive litigation skills, Ted has an attentive, personal manner with clients. He listens quietly to their concerns, helps them confront the often overwhelming consequences of a trucking accident, and explains the complex litigation process so they will be more comfortable with it.

Ted’s clients benefit from his long-standing relationships with attorneys across Virginia and the country. Through his many contacts, he can access valuable information about the qualifications of nationally recognized trucking industry experts, medical consultants, as well as engineering specialists and learn how effective these experts are at trial. His counterparts in other states share transcripts of the trial and deposition testimony of experts which Ted can use in the preparation of potent examinations of expert witnesses at trial. This is particularly important in trucking cases because success in the courtroom often depends on which party has the most powerful and persuasive expert witnesses.

Active in legal organizations throughout his career, Ted has served as President of the Virginia Trial Lawyers Association, Chair of the Tort Law Section of the Association of Trial Lawyers of America, and Governor of the Association of Trial Lawyers of America. In 1993, Ted was inducted as a Fellow of the International Academy of Trial Lawyers, a select honorary legal association. His name appears regularly in Super Lawyers , a magazine that lists the top 5% of lawyers in Virginia, as selected by their peers.

Ted has a proven track record of success that he puts to work for every client.
