Who Pays In a Michigan Truck Accident

Truck accidents are often some of the most severe types of accidents on Michigan roads, with injuries and damages that can easily total into the hundreds of thousands or millions of dollars.

If you’ve been involved in a truck accident, you need to know that Michigan is a “no-fault” state, which means most injuries are likely to be covered under each drivers’ own insurance policy.

However, trucking accidents have more entities who may be found at fault. These parties may include:

  • The passenger vehicle driver
  • The truck driver
  • The trucking company
  • The cargo company/freight broker

Michigan law allows an injured person to pursue compensation from these or other parties.

What Damages Can Be Recovered After a Michigan Truck Accident

To help you receive what you need after your truck accident, the state of Michigan allows accident victims to receive different benefits and compensations for damages from various parties.

Here are some of the most common damages and benefits available:

No-Fault Benefits

Michigan is a no-fault state, which means accident victims can receive the medical treatment they need without having to worry about who is at fault for the accident. This means accident victims like you will receive medical treatment from your own insurance companies.

While this is not an exhaustive list, these are some of the damages Michigan Law allows a victim to recover after an accident:

  • Medical expenses
  • Lost wages
  • Household replacement services
  • Attendant care

Economic Damages

Once no-fault benefit limits are reached, a victim may sue for economic damages that they suffered from the truck accident. These damages are basically what the accident victim loses financially from their accident that can be proved by medical bills or that’s based on prior income before the accident.

Non-Economic Damages

A victim of a truck accident may also sue for intangible damages suffered. These may include:

  • Psychological or emotional trauma
  • Pain and suffering
  • Deterioration of the quality of life
  • Permanent disabilities/effects of the accident

What Causes Michigan Truck Accidents

The truck accident lawyer team at Kajy Law has handled countless Michigan truck accident cases. With our decades of combined experience, we’ve found that these are the three most common causes behind them.

  • The passenger vehicle driver – Passenger vehicle drivers may cause accidents because they’re driving in a careless or reckless manner, distracted by their cell phone, looking in the mirror, or are eating while behind the wheel.
  • Other causes – Drivers may encounter a number of other circumstances that cause truck accidents such as inclement weather, road hazards, or even defective vehicle components.

What are the Most Common Injuries from Michigan Truck Accidents?

Not surprisingly, an 80,000 lb truck colliding with a passenger car can be incredibly dangerous, with injuries that may be unique compared to accidents involving only cars.

Here are some of the most common injuries from truck accidents:

Injuries to the spinal cord

The tremendous impact from a truck hitting a car can damage or sever the body’s spinal cord, which sends information throughout the body.

Head and brain injuries

The force from a car being hit by a truck can lead to various types of head and brain injuries, including concussions, traumatic brain injuries, and brain lesions.

Broken bones

As a car and a truck collide, the impact can cause people to break bones. Especially common bone breaks include ribs, the femur, and the pelvis.

How The State of Michigan Defines a Truck

Truck accidents have different rules, procedures, and parties involved. Thus, it’s important to have a clear definition of what a truck is in Michigan. Here is how the state of Michigan defines a truck:

  • It is designed, used, or maintained primarily for the transportation of property and/or to transport 16 or more passengers, including the driver
  • It has a gross vehicle weight rating or gross vehicle weight of more than 26,000 pounds (this can include towed units with a gross vehicle weight rating or gross vehicle weight of more than 10,000 pounds)
  • It carries hazardous material and requires a placard to be posted as defined and required under Code of Federal Regulations Title 49 parts 100 to 199

Why Michigan Truck Accidents Are So Serious

Any accident on Michigan roadways can have major consequences, but truck accidents statistically cause worse injuries and more deaths. Here are some of the reasons why Michigan truck accidents are so serious:

A truck can weigh up to 25x more than a car

With greater weight comes greater momentum, force, and impact. So when a much heavier truck collides with a car, it can lead to far worse injuries.

Trucks need more space to stop

Because of their larger dimensions and weight, a truck can’t stop or maneuver like a car can, which can lead to higher speeds during impact and more severe consequences.

Trucks have a taller height and larger wheels

A truck’s increased ground clearance and larger wheels allow it to literally roll on top of cars, leading to occupants being crushed under the truck’s immense weight.

See what other factors cause Michigan truck accidents to be more severe »

What Michigan Road Conditions Cause Truck Accidents

Michigan’s roads can be especially treacherous for those in and around semi-trucks. It’s important to note that there is a short 60-day window to make a claim against the responsible city or county for the road condition that caused an accident.

Road conditions that can cause truck accidents include:

Construction zones

Narrow lanes, sudden shifts in direction, and uneven road surfaces can cause trucks to lose control and collide with nearby traffic.

Inadequate signage

If a truck driver doesn’t know that a lane ends, traffic merges, a road changes, or there is a significant bump, they may not have the time needed to adjust before an accident takes place.

Lack of sufficient lighting

Many truckers drive at night to avoid traffic and save time on their route. However, without sufficient lighting, the driver may not be able to react to sudden changes in or on the road, which can lead to an accident.
