I read a story in the news today about a fatal US-23 semi-truck accident that occurred near Silver Lake Road by Ann Arbor on Tuesday, October 20th. According to the Michigan State Police, a 19-year-old driver was southbound in her Pontiac Grand Prix on US-23 when she allegedly lost control of her vehicle and sideswiped a semi-truck. She then allegedly crossed the median and collided with a northbound Chrysler Concord, driven by a 19-year-old Ann Arbor man.
While the truck driver was unhurt, the man in the Concord had to be cut free from the car and rushed to a local hospital for treatment of his serious injuries. The 19-year-old female driver did not survive the crash. The police are still investigating this accident.
I am very sorry to hear about this tragic accident and hope the injured man has a complete and full recovery from his serious injuries. My condolences to the family of the 19-year-old woman for their loss.
Our Michigan car accident lawyers advise accident victims of their legal rights. For this type of auto accident in Michigan, the injured party can submit a claim for Michigan No-Fault insurance benefits. No-Fault benefits will cover his medical expenses, lost wages, attendant care, replacement services, and other benefits related to injuries suffered in the accident. The injured party can claim these benefits even if he did not have a Michigan automobile insurance policy.
In addition, the car accident injury victim may also have claims for personal injuries against any driver determined to be at fault in this auto accident. The insurance company for the negligent driver typically pays a settlement for this type of case. In this lawsuit, the injured victim can claim damages and compensation for the injuries suffered in the accident. At the very least, he should hire the best possible lawyer to look into these possibilities.
An experienced Michigan car accident lawyer can assist the victim with this type of claim. Accident victims should not speak with the insurance adjuster for the negligent driver before consulting with an attorney.
