Vassar, MI - Fatal Traffic Crash Involving Semi  Claims 2 Lives on M-46 near Kirk Road

Truck accidents are some of the most devastating types of traffic accidents. Being involved in a crash with a commercial truck can be terrifying. Semi-trucks are about 20 times heavier than the average passenger vehicle, making them the giants of the road. Usually, those who sustain injuries in truck accidents are more severely injured than those who are hurt in regular traffic accidents. 

Unfortunately, traffic collisions in the Wolverine State happen hundreds of times per day. Yearly, the state sees around 300,000 traffic accidents. Over 70,000 people have been hurt in these wrecks annually, and more than 1,000 are killed. Sustaining injuries in a collision can leave a devastating mark on a person’s life. If you or someone you love has recently been hurt in a wreck, you are painstakingly aware of the consequences that often follow–physical, emotional, and financial. 

You may have had to spend a lot of time recovering in the hospital, which means you may have been forced out of work. This can result in stress and anxiety, wondering how you are going to cover the costs associated with your crash and resulting injuries. A personal injury attorney in Michigan may be able to help you figure out how to collect financial compensation for your injuries and losses. Compensation can help cover some or all of the costs associated with your wreck.

Truck Accident Attorneys in Vassar

Across the United States, currently, there are more than 11 million trucks actively operating, many with overworked and fatigued drivers carrying hazardous loads. In 2016, approximately 475,000 large truck collisions were reported in the United States. Human error was the leading cause of these wrecks, accounting for more than 90% of them.

If you or a loved one of yours has been injured in a truck accident in Detroit, allow a Vassar truck accident attorney to help you protect your legal right toward compensation. The lawyers at the Michigan Legal Center firmly believe that paying for injuries caused by driver negligence is out of the question. Sadly, many truck accidents are the result of driver negligence due to the fact that truck drivers are often overworked and fatigued. Driving while fatigued is comparable to driving while intoxicated, and can result in devastating consequences. 

One of the worst possible consequences of a serious car crash is when you lose a loved one. Losing a loved one due to the reckless actions of another driver can cause you devastating emotional pain and suffering as well as stressful financial problems.
