For the victims of truck accidents in Michigan, describing the experience of being in a truck accident can hardly be put into words. Most truck accident cases involve serious injuries due to the imbalance in size and weight of trucks versus the passenger vehicles they often strike. For someone with serious injuries after a truck accident, their lives have been completely disrupted and potentially changed forever. The absolute last thing they should focus on after the accident is a fight with their insurance company to compensate them for the financial ramifications of the accident. That’s why every single victim of a truck accident needs qualified representation in their corner to help make sure they get the compensation they deserve. Our family of truck accident lawyers at Sawan & Sawan represent the victims of truck accidents in Michigan and offer free initial consultations. Call 419-900-0955.

Michigan Truck Accident Statistics

Perhaps the best source of Michigan truck accident statistics is the Large Truck and Bus Crash Facts annual report compiled by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Association or FMCSA. Their Large Truck and Bus Crash Facts report includes statistics about truck accidents broken out by State. While we make every effort to keep this information up to date, the most recent report from the FMCSA at the time this article was written was from 2017. Per that report, Michigan had 76 fatal accidents involving large trucks in 2017.  This was below the annual average since 2007 of approximately 87 fatal accidents involving large trucks in Michigan. Across the United States in 2017, the average number of fatal truck accidents was around 91 so the State of Michigan is considerably below the average in the United States. With 4,657 total fatal truck accidents in the country, Michigan represented approximately 1.6% of the total cases. 

What Should I Do If I've Been in a Truck Accident in Michigan?

If you’ve been in a truck accident in Michigan, there are many things you should consider. For starters, it is important that the parties involved in the accident not leave the scene. In most States, including Michigan, there are laws that make it a crime to leave the scene. The best thing to focus on is making sure anyone involved in the accident is seeking medical attention immediately. Make sure someone has called an ambulance if anyone has been injured in the accident. Once it is confirmed that an ambulance has been called, turn your attention to the safety of others by making sure no one involved in the accident is obstructing the roadway. After the safety of those around you has been ensured, it is very important that the police be called and police report is filed. You should then call a personal injury attorney as soon as you can.

Do I Need a Lawyer If I'm in a Truck Accident?

Our team of personal injury lawyers has done a significant amount of work analyzing and understanding when it makes the most sense for a victim of an accident to hire a lawyer. For starters, we always start by making sure our clients and potential clients understand that they are freely and fully able to represent themselves in their injury case. That being said, for the victims of truck accidents, there is absolutely no reason not to hire a lawyer. Not only is it extremely important that they hire a lawyer, but they must also do so as early as possible after the accident. Most truck accident lawyers do not charge fees unless they obtain compensation for their clients. This is called a contingency fee agreement and our firm follows that model entirely. We do not charge fees unless we obtain compensation for our clients. For that reason, there is no cost to call us if you’ve been in an accident. The main reason they need a lawyer so that they can focus on their health and getting better. Aside from this, truck accidents involve many complicated issues related to evidence, insurance coverage, and state law as well as truck accident regulations. There’s simply too much information to learn in the midst of recovering from an accident to properly resolve your claim making sure all bases have been covered. Call us today to talk to a team member at 419-900-0955. 

How Much is My Truck Accident Claim Worth?

Valuing a truck accident injury claim is a tricky subject. There’s no formula necessary that applies to every case. In the state of Michigan, there’s a body of law that’s going to establish what damages are allowed and provide for a general framework on what does and does not have to be paid by the tortfeasor or their insurance company. Bear in mind that Michigan’s no-fault system of insurance coverage does apply to accidents involving semi-trucks. That means the amount of damages available for your claim is a complicated matter involving Michigan no-fault benefits and potential litigation. To provide a general idea of the types of things covered under most no-fault insurance policies, here’s a non-exhaustive list:
