Holding Drivers and Trucking Companies Accountable for Trucking Accidents

Because of the long hours truck drivers work, they are often overtired and unprepared for the worst that can happen on the road. That results in shortcuts that amount to negligence. The federal Motor Carrier Safety Act requires truck drivers to adhere to regulations involving time on the road, rests, and load-weight. Trucking companies are held liable for the negligence of its drivers.

Experience and Resources to Mediate or Litigate Your Trucking Accident Claim

We use experience and thorough legal knowledge, coupled with vast resources, to build your tractor-trailer crash injury claim based on the facts. Expertise comes from our network of trucking industry experts and accident reconstructionists. From there, we seek the best resolution, through negotiation, mediation or litigation.

Though there are many streets, roads, and state highways where truck accidents occur, often times they occur on Interstates such as I 75, BL75, BS75, I 69, BL69, I 96, BL96, I 475, I 94, I 696, I 275, I 94, I 675 and other major truck routes like US Highway US 2, US 23, US 131, US 10, US 27, US 24, US 223, US 127, US 12 and US 31.

Catastrophic Injuries When Safety Was Not a Priority

It does not matter what kind of truck is involved in your accident. They can include:

  • Tanker Trucks - Oilfield Trucks- Pipe Haulers- Chemical Trucks and other trucks with trailers carrying hazardous materials
  • Slow Moving - Log Trucks, Garbage Trucks, Dump Trucks, Cement Trucks, Gravel Trucks and Construction Zone Trucks entering and exiting a highway construction zone, Wide-Load Convoys, Bulldozers, Farm Equipment and slow moving Paving Equipment
  • Freight Liners, UPS, DHL, Fed-Ex, U-Haul, Mayflower and other van lines
  • Shuttle Bus, Casino Buses to and from MGM, Turtle Creek, Odawa and Little River, Vacation Bus, Tour Bus, Greyhound Buses
  • Most all other 18-wheeler, Big-Rig, Flatbeds, Tractor/Trailer combinations or any type truck that involves a pre-trip inspection.

We Handle All Types of Truck Accident Claims

Commercial trucks are not always large, but carry a large insurance policy. Settlements and jury awards for truck accident cases can be much larger than auto accident claims. Truck companies often carried significantly larger insurance policies than a car driver. Your personal auto policy is sometimes as low as the Eastern Michigan state mandatory minimum limits require of $20,000, however, a commercial vehicle, such as a company van, pick-up, tow truck, etc., usually carries policies of insurance coverage with much higher limits and you can be fairly and fully compensated when the driver is negligent.

You do not have to retain a firm in Eastern Michigan if the accident occurs in Eastern Michigan. You need to retain a firm that specializes in truck accidents.
