Michigan Truck Accident Attorneys

Assisting Victims of Big Rig Collisions & Their Families

Did you know that a person is injured or killed in a truck accident every 16 minutes? Few things are more terrifying than being involved in a collision with a semi-truck. These massive big rigs can transfer huge amounts of energy to your vehicle in a crash, often causing very serious injuries. The United States Department of Transportation estimates that over 500,000 truck accidents occur every year.

Special rules and laws apply to commercial carriers that many people may not be familiar with. If you are injured in a collision with a big rig, you need an experienced attorney to help protect your rights. The truck accident attorneys at Grewal Law PLLC have more than 100 years of combined legal experience. We have been helping severely injured victims and the family members of those killed in big rig accidents for decades. Our firm has several office locations and we proudly serve clients throughout the state of Michigan.

Common Causes of Big Rig Accidents

Much like other types of motor vehicle accidents, such as car and motorcycle accidents, large truck collisions occur for a wide variety of reasons. All too often, these devastating collisions are the result of negligence, either on the part of the truck driver, the trucking company, a manufacturer, or another party.

Some of the most common causes of big rig accidents include:

  • Distracted driving, including eating or texting while driving
  • Operating while intoxicated (OWI/DUI)
  • Speeding
  • Reckless or aggressive driving
  • Failing to yield the right-of-way
  • Illegal and/or dangerous driving maneuvers
  • Overloaded and/or improperly loaded cargo trucks
  • Violation of hours-of-service regulations
  • Defective truck parts or design
  • Improper truck maintenance

Truck accident claims are often particularly difficult to navigate, as there may be a number of liable parties. For example, if a trucking company pressures drivers to meet unrealistic quotas, truck drivers may feel as though they need to speed or skip mandatory breaks in order to stay on schedule. If an accident results, both the truck driver and the trucking company may be liable.

Why You Need an Attorney

As previously mentioned, truck accident claims are very complex. It is crucial that you have an experienced attorney on your side who can thoroughly investigate the accident, determine what happened, and discover who is liable for your injuries and other losses. Truck accidents are typically devastating, with victims suffering serious, catastrophic injuries. These injuries have a huge impact, one that is often physical, emotional, and financial in nature.
