Ann Arbor Trucking Accident Attorneys

When a passenger car is involved in a tractor trailer wreck the heavy commercial truck can easily crush a car or force it off the road and down an embankment. A trucking accident generally results in catastrophic or fatal injuries for occupants of the smaller vehicle.

Truck accident claims: a complex and challenging area

If you or a member of your family has been injured in a trucking accident, you need to focus on healing. Yet you need to take measures to protect your right to recover adequate compensation to provide for medical care and lost wages. You may be entitled to a number of claims, including those for pain, suffering, and, in a wrongful death case, loss of companionship.
 
Trucks have a hard time stopping - - did the driver leave enough space to brake? In a recent case a truck rear ended a car waiting to turn into a driveway and killed the driver. In another case, our client was mowing her lawn when a truck left the road and hit her. Trucking companies are required to perform regular maintenance - - do their records show maintenance was performed? Over-the-road truckers are pressed for time - - does the driver’s log show the driver was negligent in driving without rest? If the load was imbalanced, you may have a claim against the company that owns the trailer or the warehouse that loaded the product.
