Truck Accident Lawyers in Michigan

Comments (0)

The Michigan truck accident section of our Library has a number of good articles on truck accidents in Michigan and the laws that lawyers use to win these cases for our clients.  In many cases, the regular "rules of the road" are used to prove that a truck driver was negligent and caused an accident with another motor vehicle.    The laws that apply to cars and motorcycles also typically apply to trucks, such as speed limits and stopping within the assured clear distance ahead so as to not rear-end another vehicle.

There are other regulations and laws that apply specifically to trucks and tractor-trailers.  These include truck regulations set by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration.  These are federal regulations and violations of these rules can be used as evidence that a truck driver and trucking company was negligent and is responsible for injuries caused in an accident. 

If you were involved in a truck accident in Michigan, you should contact our office immediately so that we can determine which laws will prove and win your case.  We also start working on your case immediately to preserve evidence and locate important witnesses.  In many cases, we obtain the "black box" from the truck to prove the speed, braking, and other factors that led to the accident.  A delay in contacting a lawyer often results in it being very difficult to obtain necessary evidence at later date.
