Grand Rapids, Michigan, Truck Accident Lawyers

If you have been injured in a truck accident, much is at stake in your choice of an attorney to handle your case. Truck accidents can cause serious and often permanent injuries that can affect the quality of the rest of your life. At the same time, liability can be difficult to prove and insurance companies will not pay a large damage claim without a fight.

The lawyers at McDonald Pierangeli Macfarlane in Grand Rapids understand both sides of truck accident cases, as we represent both truck accident victims as well as the insurance companies that pay these claims. We also know how insurance companies value injury claims and this helps us seek fair compensation for injured people.

We understand how insurance companies investigate truck accidents and the likely avenues they will pursue in defense. We know which accident reconstruction experts they will retain and what issues they will look at to determine liability.

Proper investigation of a semi truck accident claim requires an in-depth knowledge of the state and federal regulations that govern truck drivers, such as hours of service (HOS) laws that are designed to prevent truck driver fatigue. Our lawyers know what is required by Federal and State regulations to properly maintain and certify a truck as road worthy. Our lawyers have good relationships with police agencies in Western Michigan. This enables us to gather information from accident reports quickly.
