Detroit Truck Accident Lawyers

If you have been injured in a truck accident, you need a seasoned, trial-tested truck accident attorney to fight on your behalf and help you try to make things right for yourself and your family.

When 80,000 pound tractor-trailers and buses share roads with passenger vehicles, they become potentially lethal weapons that must be operated with great care. Due to the sheer size and weight of commercial vehicles, a collision between a passenger vehicle and a semi-truck can prove disastrous, and the resulting costs can take a tremendous toll on the lives of the people involved and their families.

Causes of Truck Accidents

While the vast majority of truck drivers work hard to make a living and take careful precautions to drive safely, there are others that unfortunately do not take these same precautions. Too often, accidents occur as a result of tired truck drivers after hours of driving without stopping and without taking days off. These and other contributing factors pose a serious safety risk to the rest of us on the road.

Special trucking safety regulations apply to truck drivers and their employers. Motor carriers are required to train drivers regarding applicable regulations and to have adequate management systems in place to monitor their compliance. Violations of these regulations can constitute negligence.

Sommers Schwartz’s team of experienced truck accident attorneys are familiar with the technical and complex rules and regulations that govern truck drivers and trucking companies, and we know how to secure the recovery you deserve for the injuries they cause when those rules and regulations aren’t followed.

I couldn’t have asked for better representation and counsel.

Thank you to Tad for representing me on my severance agreement. The entire negotiation was handled efficiently and in an extremely professional manner. I also really appreciated that Tad was transparent about the process and timelines, as well as that he was willing to discuss strategy with me.

Your advice and guidance were spot on.

I was not sure what to expect and was worried about the out come. Throughout the process you both demonstrated understanding for the emotional roller coaster your clients were going through, keeping us on track.

We are pleased!

Mr. Turner was a guiding light.

Going through the legal process was foreign and nerve-racking for me but I was able to garner confidence from my attorney. I am fully confident he was the key factor in the success of my outcome.

Ken Watkins and the lawyers at Sommers Schwartz did an excellent job.

Ken Watkins and the lawyers at Sommers Schwartz did an excellent job, were responsive to my emails and telephone calls, and I was very satisfied with their performance in court and the result.

I will confidently recommend Sommers Schwartz.

You were on a short list of attorney’s I considered to represent me in this matter based on your standing in the legal community and I have no doubt that your reputation brought this matter to a resolution more expeditiously than a less highly regarded attorney would have been able to accomplish.

I was very impressed!

I want to express what a great job Tad did. He made me feel comfortable and important in his role and he was very supportive. I was very impressed.

Overall a wonderful job and I will definitely recommend you!

I had a wonderful experience with you and Tad! I think the outcome was great, in spite of my former employer’s attempts at dodging the issue and I am extremely happy in my new position.
