Tow trucks provide a necessary and valuable service to anyone whose car has broken down or has been rendered undrivable after an accident. However, tow trucks are not immune to crashes themselves, and they often cause severe damage in collisions due to their large size. If you or your loved one have been injured by tow truck mishaps in Michigan, you may deserve compensation for your injuries.

It is a good idea to get quality legal advice after a collision with a tow truck to ensure that you are getting the financial compensation you deserve.

How Tow Truck Accidents Differ from Other Accidents

There are several factors that make tow truck accidents in Michigan unique to other types of motor vehicle accidents. One factor is the size of the vehicle. There are four major types of tow trucks including flatbeds, integrated trucks, hook and chain tow trucks, and wheel lift tow trucks. All these tow vehicles are larger than the average car, making them heavier and more capable of causing destruction in the event of a crash. 

If you or your loved ones were injured in a tow truck accident, there is a high probability that the physical injuries and property damage ranged towards the severe. If the tow truck owner or driver was at fault for the accident, you shouldn’t have to pay the medical bills and lost wages incurred in the aftermath of your accident. 

However, receiving compensation is not as simple with tow truck collisions as it may be in other Michigan motor vehicle accident cases. Tow trucks are commercial vehicles with unique regulations, insurance, and maintenance responsibilities. 

You don’t want to go up against insurance companies on your own, dealing with the complications of the no-fault insurance law. Instead, hire a Michigan truck accident personal injury attorney who is well-versed in the unique aspects of tow truck and no-fault insurance claims can help to maximize your chances of a positive outcome. That way, you can sit back and relax, focusing on recovery, knowing your case is in good hands.

Common Causes of Tow Truck Accidents in Michigan

While all Michigan tow truck accidents are unique, there are some causes that we see more commonly than others. For example:

  • Driver error: Distracted driving, speeding, drowsiness, or inexperience
  • Failure to follow traffic law: Tailgating, failure to yield, unsafe lane change
  • Overworked drivers: Drivers working overtime to the point of being a safety risk
  • Lack of safety checks: Failing to ensure that the loads are fully secured
  • Negligent hiring practices: Employers hiring unqualified or untrained drivers
  • Lack of maintenance or repairs: Failing to keep the vehicle in a safe condition
  • Manufacturer error: Damaged or defective parts causing vehicle malfunction

Whether your tow truck crash was caused by one of the above reasons or a different one, you may be eligible to receive compensation from the responsible party or parties. The driver, the trucking companies, and their auto insurance company may try to pass the buck, denying any wrongdoing, insisting that your no-fault insurance company foot the bill, or offering a low settlement offer. 

Don’t let them get away with it! Your Mike Morse Michigan truck accident lawyer can determine who is responsible for the crash and hold them accountable. 

Common Injuries in Tow Truck Accidents

Due to the immense size of tow trucks when compared with the average passenger vehicle, when a crash happens, the damage tends to be greater than in a normal car accident. This can result in especially serious injuries and high medical bills. 

Some common injuries are:

If you or a loved one suffered one of these or other injuries, it is vital that you seek medical attention as soon as possible. Even if you cannot identify an injury, one may appear in the future, and it’s important to have doctor’s reports from day one. The sooner you begin treatment, the sooner you can heal from what you have suffered. 

The financial losses in the aftermath of a tow truck crash can be steep, with mounting medical bills, lost wages, property damage, and more. If your accident was caused by the negligence of another party which led to you suffering injuries, you may deserve compensation in the form of a personal injury lawsuit settlement.
