Michigan Truck Accidents

We Seek Justice for Truck Accident Survivors & Families. No Matter What.

Michigan Truck Accident Lawyers

Large trucks—known as 18-wheelers, semi-trucks, big rigs, and tractor-trailers—are a powerful force on our roads. Due to their size and weight, collisions with a large truck usually result in serious injuries or fatalities. Such accidents can wreak havoc on an individual or family, sometimes causing irreversible damage. Unfortunately, such accidents are not rare. In fact, per the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration's National Center for Statistics and Analysis Traffic Safety Facts, Michigan reported 98 large truck accident fatalities in 2014. This number is even higher when we consider the number of accidents that don't involve fatalities.

What to Do After a Michigan Truck Accident

When you or your family has been injured a truck accident, the first step should be speaking with a Michigan truck accident lawyer. A knowledgeable lawyer can help you complete the next step of filing your claim in a timely manner. If you wait too long to file your accident claim, state laws and regulations may allow the trucking and insurance companies to destroy the accident records. We at Arnold & Itkin have discovered that courts are fairly limited in helping accident victims if they do not have access to this important evidence.

If you find yourself in such a situation, the experienced team of lawyers at our firm can give you sound legal advice with how to proceed in filing your claim. We understand that there may be extenuating circumstances, and we can partner with you to work hard in fighting for full and fair financial compensation.
