Commercial and Semi-Truck Accidents

Helping You Recover If a Truck Puts You in Harm’s Way

The trucking accident attorneys at Giroux Trial Attorneys, Southfield know that trucking accidents aren’t like a car accident—they require precision, expertise, and fast action. But when you and your family are facing the impact of a major tragedy, it’s difficult to think of how to handle the case on top of physical and emotional trauma. That’s where we can help.

Truck accidents can have devastating consequences, even in an accident that would be minor for two cars (like rear-ending). The sheer size and velocity of a semi can turn minor mistakes into life-changing injuries requiring hospitalization, surgery, rehabilitation, and long-term care.

The most common truck accident injuries include:

Were you or a loved one in an accident due to any of the following?

  • Vehicle loss of control
  • Running out of the travel lane
  • Collision
  • Distracted driving
  • Mechanical failure
  • Improper cargo loading
  • Poor vehicle maintenance
  • Driving under the influence
  • Driver error resulting in truck rollover
  • Driver fatigue

Q: Is my employer responsible for my medical expenses if I am hurt while driving a company vehicle?

Worker’s compensation covers an employee injured while driving a company vehicle within the scope of his employment. This coverage can include reimbursement for medical bills, out of pocket expenses, and some lost wages. However, worker’s compensation does not pay for pain and suffering.  A pain and suffering claim should, in most cases, be available against the person responsible for the accident.

Q: Does worker’s compensation help pay my expenses while I am off work?

Worker’s compensation pays hospital and medical expenses related to the injury, but may also provide disability payments while you’re off work. These payments are typically commensurate to a percentage of your regular salary. Worker’s compensation may also pay for rehabilitation and retraining.
