Truck Accident Attorney Michael Grossman

While it's not clear exactly what happened here, any crash involving a semi-truck is going to be complex. Quite frankly, making sure victims affected by the crash have all the answers they need will likely require more than just a police report. I've litigated hundreds of commercial vehicle wrecks over the years, and I've lost count of how many times reports left out crucial details or simply got the facts wrong. That's why independent investigations are so crucial in these situations. Victims and families need to ensure they have all the facts going forward so they can get the help they need.
