Vehicle Accidents Can Be Devastating

Serious vehicle accidents happen every day. They involve trucks, buses, motorcycles, and drivers. Serious, life-changing accidents are often the result.

Causes of Serious Vehicle Accidents

  • driver impairmentvehicle accidents can be devastating
  • driver recklessness
  • driver fatigue
  • defective automobiles or parts
  • dangerous road conditions

Truck Accidents

Approximately 5,000 commercial trucks are involved in fatal traffic accidents in the U.S. every year. A semi-truck accident can be particularly devastating to Michigan victims and their families. The impact between a heavy tractor-trailer and a much smaller passenger car is the cause of catastrophic injuries.

Bus Accidents

Because of increasing congestion on our roadways and the high cost of maintaining a vehicle, a growing number of people are using buses as a primary form of transportation. In the U.S. each year, there are more than 300 deaths thousands of personal injuries caused by bus accidents. Most bus passengers do not wear seat belts, and this can result in life-altering injuries when an accident occurs.

Motorcycle Accidents

Across the U.S., about 4,000 motorcyclists die on the highway every year. Another 67,000 motorcyclists are injured in traffic accidents. Injuries sustained from a motorcycle accident are often very serious because drivers and riders are not protected from the physical impact that occurs when they are struck by a car, truck, or another motorcycle. Motorcyclists are easily thrown off their motorcycles and onto roads, guardrails, oncoming traffic, and other vehicles involved in the collision. Injuries in a motorcycle accident can range from mild scratches and bruises to catastrophic injuries and death. At Thurswell Law, we understand the seriousness of these injuries and know there is a very good chance that the victim’s life may never be the same.
