Large trucks are responsible for a significant number of traffic collisions that occur around Michigan. Truck accidents that involve tractor-trailers or semis are far more likely to result in serious injury or death than accidents involving two passenger vehicles due to the differences in size and weight of the vehicles. For example, a man recently lost his life after getting in an accident with a garbage truck in Green Lake County.
It is critical for victims of truck accidents to seek legal help right away and see what damages they can recover in the aftermath. The types of damages fall into two categories: economic and noneconomic.
