18-Wheeler Accident Lawyers in Detroit - Fraser & Souweidane Is on the Side of Michigan Victims
Truck accidents involving 18-wheelers can have tragic consequences given the size of the big rigs and significant forces involved in a crash. Fully loaded with cargo, a 53 foot-long, semi-truck can weigh up to 80,000 pounds - exponentially larger than an average passenger vehicle that weighs 3,000 pounds. If you've suffered injuries in a truck accident with an 18-wheeler, you need solid legal guidance from a Detroit 18-wheeler accident lawyer who knows how to protect your rights. You need Fraser & Souweidane. Call (866) 465-9095 now for a free consultation.
In eastern Michigan, it's not uncommon for drivers of passenger vehicles to share the road with 18-wheelers on busy interstates such as I-75, I-94, and I-96. We expect truck drivers and their companies to operate their vehicles safely and professionally. Unfortunately, that's not always the case. The causes of truck accidents in Michigan can often be traced back to the negligence of the driver or the company that owns the 18-wheeler. The following are some of the types of injuries typically resulting from 18-wheeler accidents in the greater Detroit area, including Wayne, Macomb and Oakland counties:
- Traumatic brain injury
- Spinal cord injury
- Broken bones
- Internal organ damage
- Fatal injuries

However, the decisions you make immediately following your accident could mean the difference between a successful recovery and years of financial hardship due to costly medical bills, lost wages from missing work, and insurance companies that offer you a "low ball" settlement that might not cover the full cost of your injuries.
