Injured In A Michigan Truck Accident? You May Have A Right To More Than Just Workers’ Comp.
When truckers suffer on-the-job injuries, their employers can be required to provide workers’ compensation. Unfortunately, because workers’ compensation can be expensive, some employers prevent claims from reaching fruition. Some trucking companies argue that their truckers are independent contractors — not employees — in an attempt to prevent them from receiving benefits from the company’s insurance policy.
If you are a trucker who suffered injuries while you were working, you may be entitled to Michigan no-fault benefits. With Michigan no-fault benefits, you can receive 85% of your normal wages, and your medical bills are paid for life for all injuries suffered in the accident.

Types Of Possible Claims
A claim against your insurance carrier: If you suffered an injury while driving or working on the job — such as falling off the trailer of your truck — you may be able to file a claim against your insurance carrier to recover no-fault benefits, such as wage loss and expenses relating to medical treatment.
A personal injury claim: If another driver’s negligence caused a truck accident while you were on the road, you may be able to file a personal injury lawsuit against the party who caused your accident and recover compensation to pay for losses stemming from your injuries.
