Michigan Semi-Truck Accidents

Lansing, MI - Driver Hurt in Crash with Semi-Trailer at I-69 & Vermontville Hwy

Commercial truck accidents happen less frequently than typical collisions, but they can still result in serious injuries. There are several truck accidents in Michigan and across the country each year. There were 14,972 crashes involving heavy trucks or buses in 2021, according to the most current traffic crash statistics made public by the Michigan State Police. A total of 1,489 of these collisions involved a truck pulling a trailer, while 4,810 of them involved semi-trucks. 

It is in your best interest to speak with a knowledgeable Michigan truck accident attorney right away if you or a member of your family is hurt in any collision involving a large tractor-trailer rig. It is particularly important because semi-crash injuries can be quite severe. Time is of the essence, as the trucking company’s lawyers may begin lawfully destroying important evidence as soon as three months after the collision.

Within that brief window of time, records that could demonstrate trucking company negligence could be destroyed.  Evidence from black boxes or electronic data recorders can be wiped or removed. Waiting increases the likelihood that you will not be able to collect the proof you need to demonstrate fault or damages.  Tractor-trailer accidents may be governed by both federal regulations and state laws, which makes the situation even more complicated for lawyers who are not used to trying semi-crash cases.  

Instead of going up against the insurance company by yourself, you need the help of a Lansing semi-truck accident attorney to help you with your personal injury claim. Your chances of successfully obtaining full compensation are tenfold when you enlist the aid of an experienced attorney, and Christopher Trainor & Associates will do all in its power to make sure you get the financial assistance and medical care required for a full recovery.
