Many commercial truckers get a bad reputation because of a minority of unfit and careless drivers that cause catastrophic truck accidents on Michigan roads. But the personal injury lawyers of Michigan Auto Law realize that the majority of semi-truck and tractor-trailer drivers do care about safety and follow the rules. Our law firm has compiled a section of resources especially for truck drivers, to ensure their well-being and arm them with information to help prevent truck accidents.
Because truck drivers are sometimes the ones who are seriously injured or killed in trucking accidents, it’s important to consult with a Michigan lawyer who has extensive truck accident experience and understands Michigan no-fault insurance law, to protect your rights and secure a fair settlement. Many commercial truck insurance policies will also cover the truck driver who is seriously injured or killed in a truck accident caused by an underinsured car.
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 if the truck driver is injured or killed in a truck accident. The expert truck accident lawyers of Michigan Auto Law can review insurance coverage to find who is responsible for your care and help obtain your personal injury protection benefits.
