Truck Accident Lawyers in Kalamazoo
We Handle Claims throughout West Michigan
In a collision between a commercial truck and almost any other vehicle, the commercial truck and its occupants are bound to suffer less damage and fewer injuries. An 18-wheeler driven by a negligent driver or lacking proper maintenance can become an object of destruction on our roadways, leaving innocent motorists to pay the price physically, emotionally, and financially.
If you or a loved one has been injured in a truck accident in West Michigan, you do not have to bear the burden alone. At Willis Law, our Kalamazoo truck accident attorneys represent the occupants of passenger cars, motorcycle riders, bicyclists, and pedestrians who have been injured by a trucker or trucking company’s negligence.
Discuss your situation with us today by calling (888) 461-7744. We can travel to you if your injuries prevent you from visiting our offices in Kalamazoo, Grand Rapids, and Paw Paw.
Building Strong Injury Claims for the Injured
There are few experiences in life as harrowing as a truck accident. Between the physical injuries and the extensive property damage, you have a lot on your plate as you move forward. Let our truck accident lawyers in Kalamazoo handle the legal work for you. We pursue every penny that truck accident injury victims are entitled to, including compensation for medical bills, rehabilitation costs, pain and suffering, and lost wages. At all phases of these cases, we fight to hold negligent truck drivers, truck companies, and their insurers accountable for the losses they have caused.
We thoroughly investigate these accidents, which are often caused by:
- Equipment malfunctions caused by inadequate maintenance
- Failures to observe requirements for rest periods
- Driver fatigue
- Driving too many consecutive hours, which is a violation of the law
- Drunk driving or drugged driving
- Overloaded vehicles
- Poorly secured loads
- Inattentive or distracted driving
- Unsafe driving in hazardous conditions, including in construction zones
- Rollovers due to sharp turns
- Ignoring roadway signals
Our lawyers work with professionals such as accident reconstructionists, doctors, and vocational rehabilitation specialists to demonstrate the needs of our clients and obtain favorable settlements from all liable parties. If we must resort to litigation, we are fearless trial lawyers who can fight for you in the courtroom.
Fatal Truck Accidents & Wrongful Death Claims
If your loved one passed away in a fatal truck accident caused by someone else’s negligence, you have been left to deal with the emotional and financial consequences. At Willis Law, we are dedicated to helping the surviving family members of fatally injured truck accident victims obtain the full compensation to which they are entitled to make themselves whole again.
While we understand there is nothing we can do to bring back your loved one or erase what you have gone through, a successful wrongful death claim can provide the financial resources you need to move forward from this tragedy. A successful wrongful death lawsuit also builds on and augments the precedent that negligent parties should be held accountable for the destruction their actions cause.
Turn to Willis Law
