Truck Accident Attorney in Michigan

Every year, truck accidents cause serious injuries and even deaths on our roads in Michigan. For context, one study revealed that in 2022 alone, about 2,759 traffic accidents in Michigan involved large trucks. Out of these cases, 105 people lost their lives. 

At Morgan and Morgan, we have been fighting for the rights of individuals who have been injured in truck accidents since 1988. That's because we know that they are usually on their own more than half of the time, especially where financial compensation is involved. 

Insurance companies don't care about the injured. All they want is to maximize their profits. Claims adjusters also work for insurance companies—you can't trust them to advocate for your rights. Only an experienced Michigan truck accident lawyer can fight for you.

If that's what you're looking for, please get in touch with us today by filling out our free, no-obligation case evaluation form.

Morgan & Morgan

  • Who Can Be Liable for a Truck Accident in Michigan?

    In Michigan, liable parties in a truck accident will depend on the unique nature of our case. They may include the truck driver, the trucking company, the vehicle's manufacturer (in the case of a defective product that caused the accident), and potentially third-party companies responsible for fleet maintenance.

  • Can I File a Claim if I Was Partly at Fault?

    Yes, you can still file a claim if you were partly at fault for a truck accident. Michigan follows a modified comparative negligence rule, meaning you can recover damages as long as you're not more at fault than the other party (in other words, 51% at fault). That said, your compensation will be reduced by your percentage of fault.

  • Do I Need an Attorney if Liability Is Obvious?

    Even if liability seems obvious, you should have an attorney in your corner to ensure you receive full compensation for your injuries and losses. The right attorney will handle all legal aspects of the truck accident case, including negotiations with insurance companies, and even represent you in court if need be.

  • Do I Still Need a Lawyer if the Insurance Company Agrees to Settle?

    Yes, for starters, if the insurance company agrees to settle, it's because you likely have a valid claim. These companies are usually tight-fisted; they don't pay unless they have to.

    A lawyer can assess whether the settlement offer is fair and covers all your damages, including future medical expenses and lost wages. If the offer is unreasonable, they can negotiate a better settlement or take the case to court if necessary.

  • Is Hiring a Truck Accident Attorney Expensive?

    Not really. That's because accident attorneys from Morgan and Morgan work on a contingency fee basis, meaning you only pay if you win your case or secure a settlement. The fee is usually a percentage of the compensation awarded. 

  • Get a Free Case Review by a Truck Accident Expert

    The best way to understand your legal rights and options after a truck accident is to have your case reviewed by an expert. At Morgan and Morgan, your situation might be unique to us, but truck accident litigation isn't. 

    We've won huge settlements and verdicts for the injured, including $26.2 million for a man who was hit by a tractor-trailer. 

    You, too, could be eligible for compensation. Contact us today to get started.
