Persons involved in a Michigan semi-truck accident frequently have catastrophic injuries and require lifetime care, resulting in mounting medical bills. Given this, does auto no-fault apply to Michigan semi-truck crashes?
Semi-truck crashes are some of the deadliest accidents on the roadways. In 2016, nearly 12,000 heavy trucks and buses were in collisions on Michigan highways. Nationwide, studies show that 98 percent of semi-truck crashes result in at least one fatality — and about 86 percent of these deaths are not the semi-truck driver.
