Truck Accidents

A high percentage of traffic crashes and deaths involve large trucks. A large truck is any truck whose vehicle weight is over 10,000 pounds. Because of their size, accidents involving semi-trucks are more likely to result in serious injury and death than car crashes. In fact, approximately 10% of all those injured in a semi-truck accident will die. In 2011, there were 10,885 accidents involving commercial trucks in Michigan (statistics tailored by the Michigan Traffic Crash Facts). There are state and federal regulations that govern trucking and cover areas such as safety of equipment and hours of operation. However, even though these truck regulations are put in place, accidents do happen and often times it is the result of a truck company and/or driver not following the law.

If you or someone you love has suffered injuries or has been killed as result of the negligence of a truck driver, Goodman Acker P.C. can help. We represent our clients under a contingency fee basis, also known as a no-win, no-fee promise, which means there are no fees or costs whatsoever until we win or settle your case. If you do not obtain a recovery or settlement, you do not owe us anything.

Benefits of Having Our Detroit Truck Accident Attorneys On Your Side

When you are involved in an accident with a semi-truck, the trucking company that owned the vehicle and employed the driver may also be held liable. For this reason, immediately after the accident, the trucking company’s claims adjuster will start working to protect the interests of the trucking company, investigating the case, and collecting evidence to try to minimize your claim.

For this reason, it is in your best interest to hire a truck accident attorney in Detroit who is experienced and knowledgeable in Michigan law and knows how to negotiate with the trucking companies. Having an experienced truck accident lawyer immediately after the accident only ensures the protection of yourself against insurance company tactics.
