You deserve fair compensation.
Hundreds of thousands of trucking accidents occur each year, and unfortunately, one out of every eight traffic fatalities involves a trucking collision. These accidents can be disastrous if you or a loved one is struck by a tractor-trailer, often resulting in costs and injuries that can be life-altering.
Truck drivers and their employers are governed by federal and state laws and regulations. Motor carrier companies are required to train their drivers regarding these regulations, and violations of these regulations can constitute negligence on the part of the truck driver or their employer. Responsibility for an accident can fall on a number of individuals or companies.
You may have questions about negligence, or who is at fault for an accident. You may have questions about whether you have a case for your pain and suffering. You may have questions about what to do following a truck accident.
Let Michigan Accident & Injury Law be your guide to what’s right.
Frequently asked questions
Who is at fault for a trucking accident?
An investigation should be performed to determine who was negligent, or at fault for the accident. Responsibility can fall on a variety of individuals or companies including the driver of the truck or trailer, the owner of the truck or trailer, the employer of the driver or the loader, or the shipper of the truck’s goods.

What should I do following a truck accident?
Following an accident, you should contact the police immediately at the scene of the accident. The police will be a valuable resource in conducting the initial investigation at the scene. You should also take pictures and exchange insurance information with the other driver at the scene of the accident.
If you feel like you have an injury, even if it feels minor, you should immediately seek medical treatment at an emergency room, urgent care unit or with your primary care physician. Make sure you tell your medical professional every injury or complaint of pain that you’re feeling. Even small pains or complaints can lead to a much larger issue if not addressed immediately. Addressing each pain or complaint with your medical professional assists them in correctly diagnosing your injuries. You should follow your medical professional’s advice regarding a treatment plan and do not miss an appointment.
You should report this incident right away to your insurance company. Whatever you do, do not give a recorded statement to any insurance representative. The best rule of thumb is to contact an attorney as soon as possible following an accident to assist in the handling of your personal injury case.
