Michigan truck accidents share certain features. For starters, there is a much, much greater likelihood of death, personal injury, or property damage in a truck accident as compared to a simple car accident. In fact, there is over a 95% chance that one of those will happen when a truck hits a car.
More collisions with abutements and utility polls, jackknife, and cargo loss;
Fewer single-vehicle crashes and more multiple vehicle crashes;
More side-swipe accidents;
Fewer drivers cited for speeding, failing to yield, and reckless driving, but more drivers cited for improper backing, lane use, and turning errors;
More on-road crashes;
More daytime crashes;
More weekday crashes.
If someone is injured in a truck accident, that person is eligible for Michigan No Fault benefits. The best way to determine the scope of Michigan No Fault coverage is to consult with an experienced Michigan truck accident attorney.
