Auto and Truck Accidents


A car or truck accident can complicate your life in all sorts of ways. You may be unable to work and wondering who will pay for your car damage and medical bills. You may be unsure of your rights under Michigan’s No-Fault insurance laws. You may feel that your insurance company isn’t treating you fairly.

The experienced Michigan car accident attorneys at Smith Haughey can explain all your rights and options to you. We’ve operated in Michigan since 1941, so we know the unique nature of the laws and courts here. We also have a long history of successfully trying auto accident cases and negotiating successful auto accident lawsuit settlements that recover full and fair compensation for lost wages, medical care, and more. If you want a Michigan auto accident lawyer who will vigorously fight for you, in and out of court, you want a Smith Haughey lawyer.

You can also rely on Smith Haughey if you’ve been involved in a truck accident. Our trucking accident attorneys know all the state and federal regulations that come to play in these cases, and they are skilled at dealing with trucking companies that employ very sophisticated methods of evading responsibility for accidents. We always try to negotiate a fair settlement, but we will not hesitate to pursue trucking accident litigation in the courtroom – and indeed, we have a long track record of success in this arena.


When we accept your car or trucking accident case, we will usually enact a contingent fee arrangement—meaning we will not get paid until you do. We believe in every case we accept, and we put everything we have towards fighting for you.


Whether you’ve been injured in car or truck accident, it’s important to speak to an attorney as quickly as possible. We have obtained successful lawsuit settlements for clients in a wide variety of situations:

    Auto accidents – including drunk driving, careless driving, head-on collisions, rear-end collisions, rollover accidents, and accidents on all of Michigan’s major interstates and highways.
    Trucking accidents – including those caused by speeding, improper maintenance, unbalanced load, driver error, driver fatigue, driver negligence, and a driver operating under the influence of alcohol or drugs.
