Truck Accident Lawyer in Sterling Heights

If you’ve been injured in a crash with a semi-truck or other large commercial vehicle, you’ll need the help of a truck accident attorney to get a fair and adequate settlement.

Wherever trucks and cars and motorcycles share the road, it makes sense that whenever there is a crash, the people in smaller vehicles are more vulnerable to injury and death. Trucks weigh 20-30 times the weight of the average passenger car, are taller, and have greater ground clearance. Cars and motorcycles sometimes underride trucks in crashes.

What Are Caused It?

Truck braking capability can be a factor in many truck crashes. Fully loaded tractor-trailers have a 20-40 percent longer stopping distance than the average car, with the discrepancy becoming even greater on wet and slippery roads — or with poorly maintained brakes.

Some of our clients don’t remember what happened, but that doesn’t mean we can’t discover the cause and prove negligence. The team at Cochran, Kroll & Associates are equipped with the expertise and resources to fully investigate your crash, and find the truth.

Understanding Your Injuries and Your Rights

Are you worried about how you are going to pay your medical bills in the future? Will you be able to return to the same job? Will you be able to work at all? How will you and your family pay your bills if you can’t work?

You have the right to recover compensation for damages that aren’t directly related to your medical care and treatment. For some injuries — back, spinal cord, and neck injuries, or traumatic brain injuries — the long-term impacts may not be known in the early weeks or your recovery process.

Senior Partner Eileen Kroll specializes in medical cases at Cochran, Kroll & Associates, P.C., and her training as a registered nurse is invaluable in helping us evaluate our client’s injuries for legal purposes. Sometime we may recommend that you see and be evaluated by a certain doctor or medical specialist, or have a certain test procedure done. These actions, and the information that comes from them, become part of your case for compensation.

Don’t Wait Too Long

If you are considering a personal injury claim to recover damages, we’re ready to identify and document all factors of potential liability, interview witnesses, and secure expert testimony, if necessary. The best time to do these things is as soon after the accident as possible.

Contact Cochran, Kroll & Associates any time (24 hours) and let us know you’d like to meet for a free consultation. We can meet with you at your convenience, and at a time and in a place that is most comfortable for you, including your home or hospital room.

Don’t worry about the cost. If we decide to work together, it will be on a contingency fee agreement, which means we don’t get paid until you receive your settlement award.
