Michigan residents are used to sharing the road with trucks. But truck accidents can happen, and when they do the results can be devastating. If you or someone you know has been injured in a truck accident in Michigan, contact Hohauser Kuchon.
Trucking companies often have the benefit of highly-trained investigators, defense attorneys and insurance adjusters, which makes having expert legal representation imperative to the outcome of your case. If you are in a truck accident in Michigan, involving a law firm promptly ensures that the proper resources are brought to bear and the necessary investigation and information gathering are completed. Having an investigator visit the scene to locate witnesses, take statements, get photographic and video preservations of vehicle damage (roadway damage if applicable), injuries, and preserve other evidence that may be related to the truck accident, can make all the difference in the outcome of your case.
Properly handling a truck accident case requires knowledge of trucking regulations, how to best obtain and preserve evidence in such a situation, and knowledge of engineering principles related to trucks and the loads they carry. Not all truck accident cases are a result of driver negligence. Sometimes they occur as a result of product failure. Sometimes they occur as a result of the fact that a load was not properly placed on the truck or secured, among other reasons.
