Truck Accidents | Michigan Truck Accident Lawyers

Posted on Mar 29, 2009
Michigan truck accident lawyer Lawrence J. Buckfire recently added a page to the firm website that discusses liability issues related to truck accidents.  The article, "Common Causes of Truck Accidents," discusses the most frequent reasons that truck accidents occur on our highways.  The leading causes include driver fatigue, truck defects, and truck driver error.  Because injuries to motorists and their passengers are often catastrophic in accidents caused by trucks, it is essential to perform a complete and thorough investigation of a truck accident. 

Many times, the Michigan State Police or local policing agency will do the investigation, but quite often the accident victim's attorney conducts a separate investigation.  This often includes locating witnesses, taking photographs, measuring skid marks, and hiring a truck accident investigator to assist in determining the cause of the accident.  It is essential that a truck accident victim contact an experienced lawyer as soon as possible after the accident so an investigation can be performed before witnesses disappear, vehicles are repaired, and other evidence is gone.
