Michigan Garbage Truck Accident Lawyers

Michigan Garbage Truck Accident LawyerThe Michigan garbage truck accident lawyers at our firm represent garbage truck accident victims in claims for serious injuries.  Most car-garbage truck collisions are not accidents at all. They are preventable tragedies that typically result from the negligence of the garbage truck driver.  Nowadays, most garbage trucks are owned by private companies who contract with cities to provide sanitation services.  As a result, those large companies can be held accountable for the driving accidents of their employees.


Facts About Michigan Garbage Truck Accidents 

During a recent study it was showed that on average, garbage trucks kill more pedestrians and cyclist per 100 million miles driven than any other vehicle on the road. Garbage trucks do not travel too many miles, spending the majority of time in neighborhoods — so the risk ratio is increased.


Although certain provisions of the vehicle code do not apply to rubbish and garbage vehicles, they are not relieved of the duty to drive with care. For example, garbage trucks are allowed to drive on the opposite side of the road, but only if the front and rear turn signal lamps at each side are being flashed simultaneously.  Because the truck driver often blames the injured person for the accident, it is important to hire an attorney immediately so that an investigation of the case can be started.


Aftermath of a Michigan Garbage Truck Accident 

People injured in garbage truck accidents suffer significant injuries.  Injuries often include brain injuries, spinal cord injuries, back injuries, neck injuries, and bone fracture injuries. People injured in Michigan garbage truck accidents often have claims for their personal injuries. 


Accident victims can also be compensated for pain and suffering, disability, and other money damages.  Families of people who are killed in garbage truck accidents can often file a Michigan Wrongful Death Claim.


Choosing the Best Lawyer For Your Truck Accident Case

It is important to choose a Michigan truck accident lawyer as soon as possible after your accident.  This will guarantee that your claims are properly submitted in a timely manner.  It will also assist the attorney in performing a prompt investigation of the accident so that witnesses can be located and interviewed, photographs can be taken, and the vehicle can be preserved for an inspection.  A delay in hiring a lawyer can affect the ability to prove and win your case.
