Fatal I-94 Car Accident in Ypsilanti

I saw a tragic story on the news, over the weekend, about a Fatal I-94 Car Accident in Ypsilanti. According to the Michigan State Police, a tractor-trailer was pulling back on the expressway after a tire check when a minivan with a mother and two teen boys allegedly struck the tractor-trailer. The mother and one of the teens were seriously injured and the other teen was killed. Police are still investigating the accident.

I am very sorry to hear about this tragic car accident and wish my most heart-felt condolences to the family of the deceased passenger for their loss. I hope the other victims of the accident have a speedy and full recovery.

Our Michigan car accident lawyers advise accident victims of their legal rights.  For this type of auto accident in Michigan, any injured parties can submit a claim for Michigan No-Fault insurance benefits.  No-Fault benefits will cover their 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.

Also, for this type of auto accident in Michigan, the family members of the deceased victim may be able to make a claim for Survivor Loss Benefits.  This can include payment of funeral expenses, lost wages, and loss of other services. 

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 companies that own the tractor-trailer.  The insurance company for the driver must still cover any injuries. In this lawsuit, any injured parties and the family of the deceased victims 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. 

Also, the family members of the deceased victim may have a claim for a Michigan wrongful death lawsuit against the driver that police determine was negligent and caused these car accidents as well as the companies that own the semi-trucks. At the very least, the surviving family should hire the best possible lawyer to look into these possibilities. 

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.
