THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN A TRUCK ACCIDENT AND AN AUTO ACCIDENT
Your truck accident attorney should treat your truck accident claim differently than a standard automobile accident. Aside from being larger than a regular vehicle or SUV, the injuries and legal issues involved in a trucking accident are magnified. Truck accidents usually involve significant damages, complex liability issues, and multiple injured parties. At Garrison Law we understand that truck accidents can have life-altering consequences for victims and their families. We will use our team of experienced attorneys and legal professionals to help you obtain the recovery you are owed so you can focus on getting the proper medical treatment you need.
Commercial truck drivers traveling through Michigan are subject to heightened laws and safeguards put in place to protect motorists. Truck accidents often involve multiple cars and high speeds due to their frequent travel on highways, four-lane roads, and interstates. Because trucks are more likely to cause extensive damage and catastrophic injuries when a driver is negligent, both state and federal laws provide rigorous guidelines to try and prevent truck accidents from occurring.
Common Types of Trucking Accidents
• Farm equipment
• Big rigs
• Commercial vans
All have the possibility of causing significant destruction and can expose operating companies to significant financial liability when someone is negligent. At Garrison Law our skilled attorneys have years of experience assisting individuals and families who have been seriously injured from truck accidents caused by negligence. Our team will evaluate the individual details of your situation to establish liability, and pursue the highest compensation you are owed for your injuries.
The following are all common causes of trucking accidents that may be caused by negligence:
• Drivers under the influence of alcohol or drugs
• Driver fatigue, speeding, and distractions
• Companies with unreasonable driving schedules
• Trucks that are overloaded
• Insufficient commercial driver training
• Vehicle and equipment defects
Trucking accidents can be complex matters given the number of parties involved, potentially catastrophic injuries, and the federal and state laws that govern commercial trucking. We have in-depth knowledge and experience in the area of truck accident litigation, and the resources to build a strong case on your behalf. At Garrison Law our firm will evaluate the details of your case, determine whether the driver and potentially the trucking company may be at fault, and pursue the damages you deserve.
