What to Do After a Warren Truck Accident

An accident involving a semi-truck can be incredibly overwhelming due to how much more complicated they are and more severe the injuries can be. That’s why it’s important for you to remain calm and take certain steps to receive the full benefits and compensations you deserve.

Our truck accident lawyers have selected the most important steps you need to take after your Warren truck accident to help you receive the best outcome possible:

Stay at the scene of the accident and wait for the police

If you have severe injuries that require immediate medical attention, you should get those cared for as soon as possible. Otherwise, you should stay at the scene of the accident, contact the police, wait for them to arrive, and provide them with a detailed account of the incident.

Obtain the truck driver’s details

Record the truck driver’s information, including their driver’s license info, license plate, insurance details, who their employer is, and who owns the truck.

Document what happened

Take photos of the scene of the accident, where the accident took place, the full extent of the vehicle damages, and any injuries.

Gather contact information from all witnesses available and try to record their statement of what happened while their memory of the accident is fresh in their minds.

Seek medical attention

After you have the photos, accident information, and have talked with the police officer, it’s important to visit a doctor as soon as possible for a thorough evaluation. Make sure you follow any prescribed treatment for your injuries.

Some accident victims mistakenly think they are uninjured and don’t need to see a doctor. However, adrenaline from the truck accident can temporarily hide injuries, symptoms, and pain.

Contact a Warren truck accident lawyer

An experienced truck accident attorney will help you throughout the remaining parts of the accident process, including when you talk with your insurance provider to apply for no-fault benefits (NOTE: insurance companies often require a claim to be made within 24 hours of the truck accident).

The Warren truck accident attorneys at Kajy Law will also ensure you receive the practical assistance you need and maximize your settlement.

Maintain clear records of everything related to the truck accident

Keep records of everything related to your accident, since they are crucial for you to receive the proper compensation. This includes saving bills, expenses, income loss, records of medical treatment, and the physical or mental trauma resulting from the truck accident.

These are some of the most important steps to take after your Warren truck accident, but you also need to avoid taking some steps that can work against you.

Who Pays After a Truck Accident in Warren?

With injuries and damages that can easily total into the hundreds of thousands or even millions of dollars, truck accidents are often some of the worst types of accidents that occur in Warren.

To get the care you need, it’s important to understand what Michigan’s “no-fault” state classification means. Under these laws, most accident-related injuries are likely covered by each person’s own auto insurance policy.

But since truck accidents are more complex than car accidents, there are extra steps when it comes to who may be responsible to pay for damages. At-fault parties for truck accidents in Warren can include:

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

The state of Michigan allows an injured person to pursue compensation from these parties and others who may also be found responsible.

What Damages Can Be Recovered After a Warren Truck Accident

Michigan has chosen an insurance system to help ensure accident victims receive what they need by allowing them to receive different benefits from various parties.

Some of the most common damages and benefits that can be recovered include the following:

No-Fault Benefits

As a no-fault state, Michigan allows accident victims to receive the medical treatment they need without worrying about who is at fault for the accident. This lets accident victims like you have your medical treatment paid by your own insurance company.

These are some of what Michigan allows a victim to recover after a truck accident:

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

Economic Damages

Unless a person has chosen an unlimited personal injury protection (PIP), they may reach the set limits for no-fault benefits under their insurance policy. After these limits are reached, they may sue for the economic damages that resulted from the truck accident.

These damages are basically what the amount that the accident victim loses after their accident. These amounts are often proved by medical bills or may also be based on how much income the victim made before the accident.

Non-Economic Damages

A victim can sue for damages they suffered that are not easily calculated but are still recognized as legitimate.

These may include:

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

What’s listed above are some of the most common damages a Michigan truck accident victim can recover. However, these are not the only damages that may be recovered by an accident victim.

The Most Common Causes of Warren Truck Accidents

Thanks to our decades of combined legal experience handling countless truck accident cases, our attorneys have been able to examine accidents from beginning to end including what caused them.

Here are three of the most common causes of accidents involving a semi-truck:

The truck driver

The truck driver may be at fault for the accident due to his condition while driving. For example, the driver may have been distracted, drowsy, or fatigued. They also may have failed to secure their load or properly maintain their vehicle.

The passenger vehicle driver

Passenger vehicle drivers have caused truck accidents because of driving carelessly or in a reckless manner, being distracted by their cell phone, looking at themselves in the mirror, or eating while driving.

Unexpected circumstances

Unexpected circumstances such as inclement weather, defective vehicle components, or hazards on the roadway have also caused truck accidents.

It’s important to establish the cause of a truck accident since it can have a significant effect on the outcome of your case.

Important Statistics Behind Michigan Truck Accidents

Kajy Law’s Warren truck accident attorneys exclusively handle truck accidents. That means we’re dedicated to knowing every aspect of these types of accidents to help you with your case.

To gain a complete understanding of truck accidents, we examine various sources of information which includes Michigan State Government statistics.

Here are some of the most important statistics from this government report about Michigan truck accidents:

  • 14,972 accidents occurred that involved trucks
  • The majority of truck accidents involved 25-34 year old males
  • 93 of truck accidents involving trucks were fatal, which resulted in 103 deaths
  • The most dangerous time of the day for truck accidents was between 12:00 p.m. to 2:59 p.m.

However, there are other statistics that shed light on truck accidents as well, such as where they are most likely to occur in Michigan.

The Most Common Injuries After a Truck Accident

A truck weighing 80,000 lbs is incredibly powerful when moving along Michigan’s roads. It only takes one mistake to result in an accident with serious, life-changing injuries for those involved.

Kajy Law’s Warren truck accident attorneys have compiled a list of some of the most common injuries that a Warren truck accident may cause:

Head and brain injuries

The force of a truck colliding with a car can result in different types of head and brain injuries, which may include brain lesions, concussions, or traumatic brain injuries (TBIs).

Broken bones

Passenger’s bones can often fracture or break from the impact of a car and a truck colliding. Some of the most common bone breaks include broken ribs, femur, and pelvis.

Spinal cord injuries

The tremendous impact from a car being hit by a truck can cause a person’s head and extremities to create a whip-like motion along the spinal cord, which can cause pain, nerve damage, and even paralysis.

If you have been injured after a truck accident, then you deserve compensation. Kajy Law can help you receive it.

How The State of Michigan Defines a Truck

Not all types of accidents are handled in the same way in Michigan. For example, truck accidents may involve more at-fault parties than accidents with only cars.

These differences can have a major impact on how to handle your case, which is why it’s important to have a clear definition of  how Michigan defines a truck.

Here is the definition:

  • 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

These are among the specific classifications of trucks, which can affect how Michigan truck accidents are handled.

Why Truck Accidents Often Have More Serious Consequences and Larger Settlements

Every accident that takes place on the roads deserves to be taken seriously. Yet, statistics have shown how truck accidents often result in worse injuries and more deaths than accidents only involving cars.

Here are some of the reasons why truck accidents often have more serious consequences:

A truck’s size is far greater

A truck may weigh up to 25x more than a car. With this weight comes momentum and force. This means a much-heavier truck that collides with a car will likely cause far worse injuries.

A truck requires more space to maneuver

A truck’s greater momentum means it needs greater distance to stop. This also means it physically cannot maneuver as easily as a car can, which means the truck couldn’t slow down like a car could at the moment of impact. These faster speeds create a stronger impact and worse injuries for those involved.

A truck can do damage that a car cannot

Trucks have much larger wheels and higher ground clearance compared to a passenger vehicle. This means a truck can literally drive on top of smaller cars during an accident, leading to the car’s occupants being crushed under the truck’s immense weight.

Because there are worse injuries, there are naturally larger settlements from these types of accidents. However, these are not the only reasons Michigan truck accidents are often more serious.

Road Conditions That Can Cause Warren Truck Accidents

Any street or highway can be the scene of an accident. However, with their greater potential for damage during an accident, large trucks driving on these roadways can be an especially dangerous situation.

These are some of the most common road conditions in Warren that can cause truck accidents:

Construction zones

Construction zones are especially dangerous when trucks drive in them. This is because these zones often have sudden shifts in direction, narrower lanes, and uneven road surfaces. Road conditions like these are more difficult for a large truck to maneuver in, which can cause them to lose control and collide with nearby traffic.

Inadequate signage

With longer braking distances and worse maneuverability, truckers need to know what’s ahead in order to safely make changes.

However, sometimes there aren’t signs advertising that traffic is merging, a road is changing, the lane is ending, or a significant bump in the road is ahead. These unexpected situations from a lack of signage may catch a driver off guard and cause them to suddenly collide with the traffic around them.

Lack of sufficient lighting

To avoid traffic and save time on their route, many truckers choose to drive through Warren at night. However, a truck driver who doesn’t have sufficient lighting may not be able to see sudden changes in the road, which can lead to an accident.

Any one of the road conditions listed above may result in a truck accident. However, you can take certain steps if you were involved in a truck accident that was caused by a road condition.

For example, there is a 60 day period to make a claim against the responsible county for the road condition that caused an accident in order for you to receive compensation.
