What are my legal rights after a truck accident?
If you’re injured in a truck accident in Michigan, you may be entitled to Michigan No-Fault benefits, including medical expenses, wage loss, replacement services (help around the house) and attendant care (in-home nursing services).
But whether a truck driver is employed by a trucking company or works as an independent contractor can make a difference as to what kind of insurance applies in the event of a crash. Here’s more information about truck driver insurance for injured drivers.
You can also sue the at-fault driver for pain and suffering compensation.
Are there any protections I’m missing?
Many truck drivers whose lives have been devastated by serious truck accidents caused by passenger cars have additional protection but do not know it. Many commercial trucks have underinsurance policies with the employer trucking company, which will cover an injured driver.
Often, a claim is never made because the truck driver is never told he is protected under the policy for his injuries and pain and suffering when another vehicle causes the accident.
It’s important to consult with a truck driver lawyer who understands complicated insurance issues involved in truck accident cases, like uninsured coverage, and the complicated interplay between workers compensation insurance and No-Fault auto insurance. If an inexperienced truck driver lawyer doesn’t thoroughly understand all areas of the law, you might not get all of the legal benefits you are afforded.
I’m an independent contractor, do the rules change for me?
Truck accident lawsuits and insurance policies can vary for independent contractors, because they are self employed. There are many independent contractor truck drivers who are not properly insured, and unsure of what kind of insurance they have in the first place.
Either way, Michigan Auto Law’s truck driver lawyers can help protect your rights and get you all of the benefits and compensation needed to make the best recovery possible.
