Semi Truck Accident Attorney Michigan

Know Your Rights

Most large trucking companies are backed by lawyers and investigators that are commissioned to the scene of an accident involving one of their trucks to help mitigate liability. It’s best to contact an attorney that will be on your side before you speak with your insurance company or the trucking company and their insurance carriers.

Complex regulations are in place imposing strict standards for how trucking companies maintain and operate their vehicles, and how they train and supervise their drivers. Knowing your rights in the face of complex laws associated with these regulations is critical to successfully moving forward with a lawsuit.

A Look at Michigan Law Regarding Semi Truck & Commercial Vehicle Accident Cases

Truck accident cases tend to be quite complicated because there are several issues at play. Unlike car accident claims, those involving trucks must consider insurance policies, truck data recorders, truck tracking software, and the driving records of the truck drivers.


There are regulations that apply to commercial vehicles. These regulations govern the maintenance and operation of commercial vehicles on Michigan roads. Examples of trucks on Michigan roads subject to these regulations include commercial shipping trucks, oil or fuel tanker trucks, delivery trucks, and similar vehicles.

According to Michigan law, truck crash victims must file a lawsuit within three years of the injury. However, given the amount of additional evidence available in these types of cases, it is important to contact one of our attorneys as soon as possible.
