Truck, Bus and Motorcycle Accidents Can Be Devastating

Serious accidents involving vehicles such as trucks, buses or motorcycles happen every day and can change your life drastically. Serious accidents often occur because of:

  • Driver negligence
  • Driver impairment
  • Driver recklessness
  • Driver fatigue
  • Defective automobiles or parts
  • Dangerous road conditions

Truck Accidents

Approximately 5,000 commercial trucks per year are involved in fatal traffic accidents in the United States. A semi-truck accident can be devastating to Michigan victims and their families. The impact between a heavy semi-truck or a tractor-trailer and a passenger car often causes catastrophic injuries.

Bus Accidents

Because of increasing congestion on our roadways and the high cost of maintaining a vehicle, there are a growing number of people using buses as their main source of transportation. In the U.S., there are an average of 320 deaths per year and thousands of personal injuries from bus accidents. Typically, bus passengers do not wear seatbelts, which can result in life-altering injuries when an accident occurs.

Motorcycle Accidents

In the United States, about 4,000 motorcyclists die on the highway every year. Traffic accidents injure another 67,000 motorcyclists annually. Injuries sustained from a motorcycle accident are often very serious. Motorcycle riders are not protected from the physical impact that occurs when they are struck by a car, truck or another motorcycle. Motorcycle riders and drivers are easily thrown off their motorcycles and onto roads, guardrails, other vehicles involved in the collision, and oncoming traffic. Injuries in a motorcycle accident can range from mild scratches and bruises to catastrophic injuries, and even death. 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.
