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.

Compensation for Truck Accident Injuries

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.

WOW! – you truly have left a great impression on us.

My wife and I really appreciate all your help. You did a wonderful job with our lawsuit and you actually genuinely tried to help us again.

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.

My matter was handled and prosecuted above my expectations.

My matter was handled and prosecuted above my expectations and resulted in a positive outcome – other attorneys I contacted weren’t even interested in representing me. I would strongly recommend Sommers Schwartz and Mr. Watkins.

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.

I will always appreciate your professional approach.

I believe that you were very professional. More important, you were patient with respect to my lack of experience in this situation. You took time to explain why one path was better than another. You listened carefully and offered sound advice and counsel.

Bravo, Tucker!

I had a trial lawyer and judge in my office today and gave credit to you as the source of the information I provided them. They both recognized your excellence and authority and were duly impressed.

They are an awesome team and I would recommend them and their firm to anyone.

I contacted Sommers Schwartz to join a class action suit. Kevin Stoops and his assistant Veronica Stewart took my case and walked me through all the documents that I had to sign, explained everything to me, and won my case!

There is no one that will harder than attorney Jason Thompson.

There is no one that will harder than attorney Jason Thompson. He and his staff will work with you to make sure they get the best settlement possible.
