Michigan Head-On Car-Truck Accident | Monroe Wrong Way Auto Accident

Our truck accident Michigan lawyers are reporting a Monroe County head-on car-truck collision that happened on South Dixie Highway near Summit Street, on Sunday, February 26th, in the early a.m. hours.  According to reports, a car driving along South Dixie Highway drove left of center and struck a pickup truck headon in the northbound lane. The driver of the car and its passenger died as a result of the car-truck accident. The driver of the pickup truck suffers serious injuries due to the accident.

According to the Fatal Analysis System (FARS), 75 percent of head-on crashes occur on rural roads, and on undivided two-lane roads. Two percent of car accidents are head-on car accidents. Other research has found that the leading cause of head on collision fatalities is because of people trying to pass on one lane roads. Other causes are due to an indivudal falling asleep while driving, being distracted, and/or speeding.  At least half of all head on collisions or wrong way car accidents kill or cripple a person involved in the crash.

I am very sorry to hear about this tragic accident. My condolences go out to the families of the deceased victims and I hope the injured victim has a fast recovery without any permanent damages.

Our truck accident Michigan lawyers advises victims of their legal rights. For this type of car-truck accident the injured victim can submit a claim for Michigan No-Fault insurance benefits. No fault benefits will cover their medical expenses, lost wages, attendant care, replacement services, and other benefits related to injuries suffered in the accident. The injured victim can claim these benefits even if they did not have a Michigan automobile insurance policy.

The injured individual may also have claims for personal injuries against the other driver if determined to be at fault in the Michigan auto accident. The insurance company for the negligent driver typically pays a settlement for this type of case. In this lawsuit, the injured passenger can claim damages and compensation for the injuries suffered in the accident. 

In addition, the families of the deceased victims may be able to make a claim for Survival Loss Benefits. This can include payment of funeral expenses, lost wages, and loss of other services.

The family members of the passenger killed in the Michigan car accident may also have means for a Michigan wrongful death lawsuit against the driver determined to be negligent. At the very least, all parties involved in the accident should  hire the best possible truck accident Michigan lawyer to look into these possibilities.
