When someone has been injured in a truck accident, it almost always results in serious injuries. Since truckers are governed by unique laws, it is vital that an experienced attorney review the facts of your case in order to maximize the chances of a positive outcome.
As a Detroit truck accidents lawyer, I see varying degrees of accidents and some of the most severe are between a small vehicle and a commercial truck. Most motor vehicles weigh a few thousand pounds, but did you know that a fully-loaded commercial truck may weigh 70,000 pounds or more? Obviously, the extent of injuries in such an accident may be astronomically bigger.
In a truck accident, not only can the driver be held liable for his or her actions, but the trucking company may be liable as well. Multiple parties may be responsible for covering your losses in such an accident.
