Michigan Auto Accident Law is complex. Auto accidents are almost inevitable, and when they do, they can be damaging and traumatizing in more ways than a few. Car crashes can result in both physical and emotional damages, ruining properties and even hearts too.

If you own a personal vehicle, you are likely familiar with Michigan’s insurance requirements, which dictate the type and minimum amount of insurance coverage required to own and operate your vehicle. Unlike personal automotive policies, however, the federal government regulates the insurance requirements applicable to commercial motor vehicles such as trucks and semi-trucks. Accordingly, if you have been involved in an accident with a truck or similar commercial vehicle, it is important to consult an attorney with experience handling vehicles insured pursuant to federal regulations in order to maximize your case’s potential worth.
