Greater Detroit Area Truck Accidents

Anyone who has been in an accident knows they can be terrifying and traumatic; statistics reflect just how damaging they are. Road accidents in Michigan were responsible for 1,000 deaths and $1.36 billion in medical expenses and lost work in 2018 alone. And while car crashes are bad enough, accidents involving a large truck can be even worse, often resulting in serious injuries or death.

If you were the victim of a truck accident, you may be entitled to compensation, but pursuing it alone may not be easy. Michigan laws regarding traffic accidents are specific and complex. Having a knowledgeable lawyer on your side can make all the difference. 

At Morgan & Morgan, we have the knowledge, experience, and resources to take on trucking and insurance companies to get the compensation you deserve. If you or a loved one have been injured in a truck accident, fill out our free, no-risk case evaluation form and a lawyer will be in touch.

  • Steps for Truck Accident Victims

    Truck accidents can be traumatic, so the first step should always be to make sure you and your family are safe. Other important steps include:

    • Move your car to safety
    • Call the police
    • Document all injuries
    • Get information at the scene, including names of people and insurance information
    • Take pictures of the accident
    • Do not accept blame for the accident
  • Types of Lawsuits

    There are a number of commonly filed lawsuits for truck accident victims. An experienced attorney can help you choose the best course of action, with options including:  

    • Negligence: If your accident occurred because of someone else’s recklessness, your attorney can sue for negligence.
    • Product Liability: Sometimes accidents are the result of defective components. In those cases, a lawsuit can be filed against the manufacturer.
    • Wrongful Death: In the tragic event that a loved one dies as the result of a truck accident, Michigan allows the surviving family to file a wrongful death suit for damages.
  • Michigan Laws

    It’s important to keep in mind a couple of state-specific Michigan laws when you are considering filing a truck accident lawsuit:

    • Statute of Limitations: If you are suing for pain and suffering in a truck accident, you must file within three years of the incident.
    • No Punitive Damages: Michigan does not allow for lawyers to sue for punitive damages, even if they prove that the defendant acted in recklessness, malice, or deceit.

    An experienced attorney can help you navigate the complexities of Michigan law. Contact our Greater Detroit attorneys to learn more.
