If someone you love is killed in Michigan in an serious accident involving a truck, you may be entitled to significant compensation. Michigan law is very clear in stating that if an accident victim dies, the deceased’s estate has the legal right to sue the person responsible for that death and recover damages.
Large trucks can weigh thousands of pounds. It’s the responsibility of the driver of those large automobiles to maintain proper control of them at all times. This includes making sure the brakes, horn, turn signals, tires, and other equipment on the truck meet or exceed reasonable safety standards. This is important because even a minor problem with the equipment on large, powerful trucks can lead to serious injury or death if they’re involved in an accident.
