Why are trucking accidents a serious issue?
In Michigan, trucking accidents are a serious issue because the fatality rates are higher than they are for car crashes. Death and catastrophic injuries are common. Evidence must be preserved immediately or it can be lawfully destroyed. Liable parties try to hide their identity, assets and insurance coverage. And the state and federal laws involved are very complex.
Who is liable in a truck accident in Michigan?
In Michigan, any person or entity whose negligence caused your truck accident may be liable, such as: the truck driver; the trucking company; the owner of the truck and/or trailer; the maintenance company; the shipping company; and the loading company and broker.
How much does a truck accident lawyer cost in Michigan?
In Michigan, a truck accident lawyer costs you $0 in attorney fees for a case unless and until your case is won. You will not be asked to pay any up-front costs. You will pay your lawyer’s 1/3 or 33% contingency fee only after your case is done and, importantly, only if a recovery is made for you first.
