Van Buren County Rollover Truck Accident

Comments (0)

A rollover truck accident in Van Buren County has resulted in serious injuries for one passenger.  The 21-year old Lawton man was ejected from a fire truck tanker on County Road 657 near 66th Avenue on January 4, 2009.  He suffered leg, neck, and head injuries, and sustained a broken jaw, possible broken nose, and numerous cuts and bruises.  He was not wearing a seat belt.  The driver was suffered minor injuries and has already been released from the hospital.  The accident appears to have been caused by icy road conditions.

I am very sorry this accident occurred.  I hope both of the men injured are able to experience a full recovery.

Michigan No Fault insurance benefits are available in a car accident like this one.  No Fault benefits are available to anyone injured in a motor vehicle accident regardless of fault and regardless of whether the injured person is a driver or a passenger.  No Fault insurance covers wage loss and medical expenses, among other benefits.  A lawyer can help explain your No Fault benefits and can even help file the No Fault claim.

In addition to his No Fault claim, the passenger may be able to sue the driver for negligence.  Under Michigan law, this lawsuit can only be filed when the injured person's injuries were extremely severe.  Whether or not this passenger's injuries are severe enough to allow a lawsuit to be filed is something a lawyer could evaluate only after learning the exact nature of the person's injuries.
