Today’s news had a story about a Capac woman injured by a semi-truck in Imlay City. According to police, Sherry Baird was seriously injured at the intersection of Capac Road and Van Dyke when she was allegedly hit by a semi-truck in the intersection. Baird was rushed to Hurley Hospital in Flint for treatment of her serious injuries. Police are still investigating this accident.
I am very sorry to hear about this accident and wish Ms. Baird a speedy and full recovery. I hope that she has no permanent deficits from this accident.
Our Michigan car accident lawyers advise accident victims of their legal rights. For this type of auto accident in Michigan, Ms. Baird can submit a claim for Michigan No-Fault insurance benefits. No-Fault benefits will cover her medical expenses, lost wages, attendant care, replacement services, and other benefits related to injuries suffered in the accident. The injured parties can claim these benefits even if they did not have a Michigan automobile insurance policy.
In addition, the injury victims may be able to file a lawsuit against the persons determined to be at fault in the auto accident as well as the company that owns the semi-truck. The insurance company for the driver must still cover any injuries. In this lawsuit, the injured parties can claim damages and compensation for injuries suffered in the accident. The insurance company for the negligent driver typically pays a settlement for this type of case.
An experienced Michigan car accident lawyer can assist the victim with this type of claim. Accident victims should not speak with the insurance adjuster for the negligent driver before consulting with an attorney.
