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.
