Trucking Accident Lawyers

Trucks and truck drivers are subject to tight regulations and a high standard of safety. When truck drivers are fatigued or inexperienced or when truck owners fail to properly maintain their vehicles, the results can be devastating.

Dennis Hurst & Associates represents victims of truck accidents and families that have lost loved ones in fatal truck crashes. Our law firm handles personal injury and wrongful death cases in Jackson County, Lansing and mid-Michigan, and statewide. Our thorough and aggressive approach can make all the difference in pursuit of your rightful compensation.

Proven Results In Michigan Truck Accident Cases

Located near I-94 and U.S. 127, our firm has handled numerous highway, freeway and turnpike accidents involving trucks, as well as truck-related accidents on local roads, in parking lots and at loading docks.

We take cases involving tractor-trailers (18-wheelers), freight trucks, package delivery trucks, construction vehicles, utility trucks, fleet vehicles and other trucks and commercial vehicles. Although trucks are well-insured for bodily injury or death, truck accident claims are complex and contentious.

It is critical to hire a lawyer quickly after a crash with a semi or any truck. The trucking company and its insurers will work fast to try to deflect liability or even blame the victim. Our experienced trial lawyers will visit the crash site to see for ourselves, locate witnesses and oversee the investigation. Our firm has the resources to bring in mechanical engineers, private investigators and accident reconstruction specialists to establish liability, such as:

  • Driver fatigue from exceeding federal limits on hours at the wheel
  • Inattentive or distracted driving
  • Speeding or following too close
  • Changing lanes or passing
  • Unsecured cargo
  • Neglected maintenance (tires, brakes, lights, doors)
  • Negligent hiring and training
