Wrongful Death Lawsuit Filed For Fatal Michigan Car Accident

Comments (0)

Our Michigan auto accident lawyers filed a wrongful death lawsuit arising out of a fatal car accident that occurred on August 25, 2012 auto accident in Midland County, Michigan.  The lawsuit was filed on behalf of the surviving family members of the 19 year old driver killed in the accident.  He suffered fatal injuries when his car was struck by another motorist who was attempting to pass two vehicles on a two-lane highway.  His car was t-boned by the other vehicle on the driver’s side door at a high rate of speed when she t-boned his vehicle.  He suffered significant injuries in the accident and was airlifted to St. Mary’s Hospital trauma center in Saginaw, Michigan, where he later died.

When filing a wrongful death lawsuit relating to a fatal car accident, a personal representative must be appointed.  Usually in these scenarios the representative is a family member. Once the representative has been appointed, they can hire an attorney to file the Michigan wrongful death lawsuit.

The lawsuit alleges that the defendant driver was driving at a speed in excess of the posted limit as she negligently attempted to pass a pick-up truck pulling a large trailer.  The decedient was turning left into a driveway when he was hit broadside on the driver’s side of his car.  He was struck on the driver’s side door and did not survive the crash.

The wrongful death lawsuit was filed under the Michigan Wrongful Death Statute.  He was survived by his mother, father, and brother.  Permissible damages include the loss of society and companionship of his surviving family members.  The lawsuit was filed in the Midland County Circuit Court.  No trial date has been set by the court.

The laws for a Michigan wrongful death lawsuit relating to an accident is complex.  It is essential that the family choose an experienced attorney for their case.  If you have lost a family member in a crash, contact our top rated auto accident team immediately at (800) 606-1717 so that we can begin our investigation of the case.
