Southfield Truck Accident Lawyer

Southfield Truck Accident Help

The Transportation Research Board has stated that “freight movement” is growing faster than passenger transport. This means a lot more trucks on the road. More big rigs, tanker trucks, and other types of commercial cargo trucks on the road translates to a greater possibility of being involved in a truck accident – because along with their unique capabilities, trucks have unique limitations. Extra large blind spots… Two lanes are usually needed to make turns… And greater distances are needed to stop safely.

State and Federal Trucking Regulations

The risk for truck accidents is serious, and so many guidelines have been established to minimize them. Through various laws, commercial trucking in Michigan is overseen at both the federal and state levels.

Technology is also helping to identify safety issues by equipping some trucks with a “black box”, to record vehicle information such as its speed, the slope and angle of turns, how long it has been driven, etc.

Other drivers can also help keep the roads safe by reporting truck safety violations they see, by contacting the FMCSA (Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration) at 1-888-DOT-SAFT (1-888-368-7238) or linking to the National Consumer Complaint Database on the FMCSA website.

    Starlynn Markiewicz
  • 28 years after my accident I received a letter from The Mike Morse Law Firm with an information brochure. I’m so glad I kept that letter because later on when AAA wrongly suspended my no fault benefits, I immediately contacted Mike. Mr. Morse took my case and did everything he said he would do. Now, more than 28 years after my accident, AAA is paying like they should be, and it’s all because of Mr. Morse’s hard work and expertise.
