Being involved in or injured in an accident with a semi-truck can present a unique set of legal issues for all parties. In Michigan & Nationwide semi-truck drivers must follow a various amount of federal and state regulations. They are required by law to have insurance with higher limits than standard vehicle drivers. They are also limited to a set amount of driving hours to reduce potential human errors.
Motorcycle accidents are a common occurrence in Michigan. There are several aspects and issues victims of motorcycle accidents must be aware of when searching for an attorney.

The chances for a rollover accident occurring for a bus or truck is much higher than it is for standard cars due to the way they are designed. Most buses are not designed with any form of seat belt or safety device for individual riders. This means that they do not have seat belts or airbags.
