Do I get Michigan No-Fault Insurance benefits after a Landstar auto accident?
Yes. If you were an insured driver, passenger, motorcyclist, bicyclist, or a pedestrian then you are entitled to no-fault insurance benefits. These benefits include payment of medical expenses, lost wages, household services, and other tremendous benefits. We will assist you with your claims.
Can I sue Landstar for the injuries in the accident?
Landstar drivers who cause an accident that injures an innocent victim can be held accountable for their negligent driving. The company is also legally responsible to any person injured by one of their trucks. These lawsuits seek compensation for pain and suffering, disability, loss of enjoyment of life, and other non-monetary claims.
In cases involving death, the surviving family members can file a wrongful death lawsuit. These lawsuits claim settlements for the pain and suffering caused from the time of accident until the death (even if just a matter of seconds) and the loss of companionship for family members.
