Sandstone Township Truck Injury Accident

While reading the news this morning, I read about a tragic Sandstone Township Automobile Injury Accident. According to Michigan State Police, a 22-year-old man was allegedly riding on the tailgate of a 2008 Chevrolet pick-up truck  on Gardner Road near County Farm Road. The victim, whose identity has not been released, allegedly fell out of the truck and struck his head.

The man was airlifted to the University of Michigan Medical Center with serious injuries to the head. His condition is unknown at this time. State police believe alcohol may have been a factor in the accident and is under investigation to determine if criminal charges should be filed  against the driver and other passengers of the truck.

I am deeply sorry to hear about this accident and my most heart-felt wishes go out to the victim for a speedy and complete recovery.

Michigan car accident victims have a number of legal rights.  For this type of auto accident, the injured passenger can submit a claim for Michigan No-Fault insurance benefits.  No-Fault benefits will cover his medical expenses, lost wages, attendant care, replacement services, and other benefits related to injuries suffered in the accident.  The injured passenger can claim these benefits even if he did not have an automobile insurance policy.

In addition, the injured victim may be able to file a lawsuit against other persons who may be determined to be at fault in the auto accident. The insurance company for the driver and owner of the pick-up truck must still cover any injuries. In this lawsuit, the victim can claim damages and compensation for the injuries suffered in the accident.  Another possible claim would be a potential Michigan dram shop case against the seller or furnisher of the  alcohol before the accident.

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.
