Truck Accident Lawyer in Detroit

Need legal representation after an accident involving a commercial truck? You’ve come to the right place.

If You’ve Been Injured

Finding legal assistance is extremely important if you’ve been injured in a semi-truck accident — or with any other type of large commercial vehicle. Why? Probably the most important reason is that an attorney can help you avoid settlement mistakes. Your attorney — and the law firm behind your attorney — will help you evaluate your injuries and medical situation for settlement purposes, and go to court, if necessary to get the settlement you need and deserve.

Cochran, Kroll & Associates P.C. can help you be confident that you’re not missing anything, or skipping any steps when making your claim. Beware of quick settlement offers. An insurance company representing the truck company may approach you and make an offer. Don’t sign anything before consulting with an attorney. Remember that they are trying to settle for as little as possible, no matter how generous they may try to make it sound.

It Gets Complicated

Truck accident cases can be complex. Who is at fault? Who is liable? If it’s the truck driver who’s at fault, the company he works for might be liable. But if the truck was overloaded, maybe it’s the distributor who loaded the truck who’s liable. Were there brake problems? If so, maybe the leasing company responsible for vehicle maintenance is liable.

Proving fault and determining liability is what the personal injury lawyers at Cochran, Kroll & Associates P.C. do. We work with clients every day on a variety of personal injury and medical malpractice cases, including individuals who have been injured in a car accident with a truck.

Expertise In Determining Negligence

We’ve had many clients over the years who don’t remember exactly what happened or who was at fault. One of the important roles that an attorney plays is helping clients figure that out.

The most common characteristics of all accidents between a truck and car involve turning errors, lane change errors, and visibility issues when backing up. Some crashes are caused by some combination of a truck’s braking, acceleration, and visibility characteristics — and the car driver’s ignorance of these characteristics.

However, the truck can also be overloaded, or oversized. There might be excessive speed, fatigue, weather and road conditions to consider as contributing factors — or lack of driver training or poor truck maintenance.

If you are considering a personal injury claim to recover damages, Cochran, Kroll & Associates P.C. is ready to identify and document all factors of potential liability, interview witnesses, and secure expert testimony, if necessary. The insurance company that is representing the truck driver — or some other liable party — does not want to go to court, but we will be ready to go to court, if we must, to get you the compensation you deserve.
