Davenport Truck Accident Attorney
Michael K. Bush and John C. Bush have tried more cases than just about any firm in the Quad Cities area. Michael is a former prosecutor and former insurance defense attorney who has represented strictly plaintiffs for the past 30 years. Both attorneys are compassionate and tireless advocates for their clients, and understand what is at stake in the typical trucking accident or commercial vehicle crash.
We know what to look for and what documents to demand to establish the carelessness or reckless disregard for safety such as:
- Driver fatigue from exceeding federal Hours of Service limits without rest
- Driver error such as speeding, tailgating or unsafe lane changes
- Neglected maintenance of tires, brakes or lights
- Negligent loading and securing of cargo
- Negligent hiring (no CDL license, criminal convictions, prior accidents)
Michael Bush regularly consults an accident reconstruction specialist who formerly trained Iowa State Patrol investigators. We spare no expense in hiring the experts and professionals necessary to establishing liability and damages. Our truck accident clients often have suffered brain injury or other catastrophic injury and the financial and personal hardships, which they entail.
