Slip and Fall

Skillful Attorney Representing Car Crash Victims
An auto accident may happen for a number of reasons, but usually, it is because the at-fault driver is speeding or drinking or just not paying attention. When a semi-truck is involved in an accident, it can be because the driver has been on the road for too long or is under the influence of something, but it can also be because the truck has had improper maintenance or has an overweight or unbalanced load, which may implicate the trucking company or its client as the negligent party. No matter the reason, serious accidents can cause serious injuries that lead to high medical bills and a loss of wages. If you have been injured, let The Law Office of Colleen V. Kavanaugh act as your car accident attorney or truck accident lawyer in Livonia. Ms. Kavanaugh will get you the full compensation you deserve.
