Langdon & Emison attorney J. Kent Emison, served as lead counsel on behalf of the Reagan family at trial.
...
"Roger Reagan would be alive today with his family if Dunaway Timber had never put Morgan Quisenberry on the road," Emison told jurors during closing argument.
...
At trial, Emison introduced evidence that Quisenberry had lied on his application and had received two license revocations.
...
Despite these infractions, Emison showed that Dunaway Timber Company could have easily discovered Quisenberry's previous infractions and, if Dunaway had done so, Quisenberry never should have been permitted to drive a tractor trailer.
...
Emison also argued that Dunaway Timber should never have assigned this trip to Quisenberry because it could not be completed within the maximum hours of service regulations.
...
"We all expect trucking companies who send truck drivers out onto the public roads to do so with professional, competent people and then make sure the company trains them and monitors them," said Emison. "But this was an example where a company hired someone who had no business driving a truck in the first place, and then blatantly ignored the regulations that govern the trucking industry."
Here, the trucking company's failure to investigate and train its driver had a tragic and fatal result. At trial, Emison elicited testimony that Dunaway Timber Company and Quisenberry violated numerous rules of the road and federal trucking regulations.
...
During closing argument, Emison told the jury this was "a recipe for disaster", pointing to Quisenberry's two license revocations; his prior accidents; inadequate training; inadequate experience; no monitoring by Dunaway Timber Company; and Quisenberry's hours of service violations.
...
Emison said the evidence established that Quisenberry was fatigued from exceeding the maximum hours of driving permitted and that Quisenberry never should have been on the road in the first place.
...
Emison, a Fellow in the prestigious International Academy of Trial Lawyers and past-president of the Missouri Association of Trial Attorneys, is a veteran attorney in trucking accident lawsuits and commercial vehicle lawsuits. Over the past 30 years Langdon & Emison has represented real people in lawsuits against some of the largest corporations in the world, including the United States Supreme Court case Baker v.

"We are pleased to help offer some degree of relief and closure to this family," Emison said.
