Our Michigan truck accident attorneys recently filed a lawsuit for a client whose wife was tragically killed in an Ohio semi truck accident. The accident occurred on US-127 in Liberty, Ohio when the semi truck that she was driving drove off the road surface, struck multiple trees and caught fire, killing her.
Our client’s wife had a policy of automobile insurance through 21st Century Premier Insurance Company. Under Michigan law, this insurer is responsible to provide survivors loss benefits to our client, as the decedent’s spouse. These benefits include the loss of the decedent’s contributions of tangible things of economic value, such as her wages, the value of her health insurance policy, and so on. These benefits also include payment for the loss of her household services she would provide and her funeral expenses.
Our client suffered the loss of his wife’s wages, his coverage under his wife’s health insurance policy, the loss of her services around the house, and also was required to pay funeral expenses on her behalf.
Michigan Survivor's Loss Benefits include money from the no-fault insurance company for loss of their financial support and loss of household services, as well as payment for a portion of the funeral bill. You are entitled to receive survivor loss benefits for the first three years following the accident.
The survivors loss lawsuit seeks damages from the insurance company for these benefits which were prompted due to the death of his wife in the accident. The case was filed in the Wayne County Circuit Court in Detroit, Michigan. No trial date has been set by the court.
