Skillful Truck Accident Investigations And Representation
Getting the compensation you need and deserve after a crash with a semi truck or tractor-trailer is often a difficult proposition. It is likely your vehicle is totaled, but that is probably the least of your concerns. Injuries from accidents with heavy trucks are often severe and more likely fatal than other types of motor vehicle accidents. Catastrophic injuries and deaths are devastating to both victims and their families, and the costs associated with these injuries are immense.
We Hold The Trucking Company Accountable For Your Losses And Damages
The trucking company’s insurance adjuster and legal defense team will quickly begin to investigate the circumstances of the accident and attempt to control the release of evidence. They will work to mitigate liability and minimize the value of your damage and loss claims.
You Need A Legal Champion On Your Side, Fighting For Your Cause
If you or a loved one was injured in a truck accident anywhere in Michigan, you need an experienced defense team that has proven itself in complex accident and catastrophic injury claim cases.

We have represented victims and their families in all types of devastating truck accident cases, and recovered full and fair compensation.
Whether your vehicle was rear-ended by a truck that was following too closely, side-swiped by an aggressive semi-truck driver, hit by falling cargo from a logging truck, hit by a jackknifing truck or tragically crushed in a head-on collision, we know how to help you maximize your recovery.
We fight for your past, present and future damages and losses above and beyond what the insurance company is willing to offer. Never accept any insurance company’s initial offer before speaking with an experienced lawyer.

Proving Trucking Company Liability
We will independently investigate your claim, and we will not stop at the evidence available at the scene of the accident. Our Rochester-based truck accident attorneys will review truck maintenance records, driver training files, hiring policies, any records of state or federal trucking regulations violations, the driver’s logbook, the driver’s medical history, cellphone records and the black box data recorder on the truck.
We work closely with accident reconstructionists, trucking industry experts, vehicle safety experts and medical experts to examine every angle of your case and establish its full and fair value. We leave no stone unturned!
The negligence that may have caused your accident comes in many forms:
- Poor truck or trailer maintenance
- Inadequate hiring practices
- Hours of service violation by the truck driver
- Improperly secured or loaded cargo
- Truck driver fatigue or untreated medical condition
- Substance abuse or impaired driving
- Vehicle safety violation
Truck drivers are encouraged by their employers to drive as long and as fast as possible. They are incentivized to test the limits, and that comes with significant costs.
