Truck Accident Lawyer in Lansing

If you’ve been involved in a motor vehicle accident with a truck, you’ll need an attorney at your side as you negotiate every step of the settlement process.

If You Are Injured

You may be filled with questions about the future. Will you be able to return to the same job when you recover? How will you pay your medical bills — for yourself and your family — if you are not able to work? Are you facing long-term or permanent disability?

Cochran, Kroll & Associates, P.C. can meet with you any time, at a place that is comfortable for you — including your home or hospital room. We can help you evaluate your injuries and medical condition for settlement purposes, and go to court, if necessary, to get you the settlement you need and deserve.

Determining Fault and Liability

Truck accident cases can get complex. Who is at fault? Who is liable? Is the driver of the truck that hit you at fault? If so, who is liable? Is it the company that owns and leases commercial vehicles? If the commercial truck was overloaded, could it be the distributor who loaded the truck who is liable? Brakes are often an issue in tractor-trailer accidents, so in some cases, it might be the entity responsible for vehicle maintenance who is responsible.

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 clients who have been injured in a car accident with a truck, helping them get the settlement they need and deserve.

Determining Negligence

Sometimes clients don’t remember what happened or know how it happened. One of the important roles we play is to help our 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.
