Madison Twp., MI (January 9, 2024) - A fatal truck accident reported in Madison Township claimed one person’s life. The accident occurred at around 815 a.m. on January 8. Troopers with the Lenawee County Sheriff's Office and area firefighters responded to the scene to assist.

Reports from the Sheriff’s office show that a 2022 Kenworth semi-trailer, which was driven by a 64-year-old man from Jackson, Michigan, was heading west on US Highway 223 during the morning hours. As the vehicle approached the intersection of Division Street, it collided with a 2007 Chevrolet Impala. The front seat passenger in the Chevrolet, identified as a 30-year-old man from Clayton, Michigan, was fatally injured. He was pronounced deceased at the scene by responding officers. The driver of the vehicle, a 35-year-old woman, was injured. She was transported by ambulance to ProMedica Toledo Hospital for emergency care. The driver of the truck was also transported to the same hospital for the treatment of injuries. At this time, the circumstances surrounding the accident are being investigated.

We hope the injured victims are able to recover quickly.

We offer our sympathies to the family of the victim who died as a result of this crash.

Fatal Truck Accidents in Michigan

Madison Twp., MI – Fatal Truck Crash on US-223 Takes One LifeIn the case of a major accident, the risk that victims would have significant injuries and other damages is greatly increased when commercial trucks, such as semis, tractor-trailers, 18-wheelers, delivery and freight vehicles, and dump trucks, are involved. Trucks weigh more than 10,000 pounds on average and may weigh up to 80,000 pounds when fully loaded, making them very dangerous when involved in an accident.

Drivers in Michigan are covered by no-fault personal injury protection (PIP) compensation from their insurers after an accident, regardless of who was at fault.

However, special care must be used when dealing with situations involving truck accidents. For instance, the federal government mandates that commercial transportation companies carry insurance with a $750,000 minimum coverage limit. First-party and third-party claims can be filed by any party involved in an automobile accident in Michigan, so long as they have the necessary insurance.

In other words, if you've been hurt in a car or truck accident in Michigan, you may make a claim with your own insurance carrier to get reimbursed for your medical bills, lost wages, and automobile repairs. Victims of vehicle or truck accidents can seek compensation from those they consider liable by filing a claim for damages. It's crucial to consult an attorney following a truck accident to determine your legal alternatives, but the plaintiff may be able to seek compensation for their suffering through a third-party claim.

Regardless of the facts of your accident, if you or a loved one were injured or killed because of a careless truck driver, you should speak with an attorney right once. If an insurance company's settlement offer falls short of what you're owed, Christopher Trainor & Associates can assist you in pursuing legal action.
