There was a story in the paper today about a woman that was killed in a fatal Taylor Car Train Accident on December 13 in Wayne County. According to police, a car, driven by a man with a female passenger, tried to beat a train at the crossing on Goddard Road, near Pelham. According to witnesses, the crossing lights for the crossing were working when the driver attempted to go around traffic and cross. Police are still investigating the accident.
I am very sorry to hear about this tragic accident and offer the family of the deceased passenger my most sincere condolences and best wishes.
Our Michigan car accident lawyers advise accident victims of their legal rights. For this type of auto accident in Michigan, the family members of the deceased passenger may be able to make a claim for Survivor Loss Benefits. This can include payment of funeral expenses, lost wages, and loss of other services.
In addition, the injury victims may be able to file a lawsuit against the persons determined to be at fault in auto accident. The insurance company for the driver must still cover any injuries. In this lawsuit, the family of the deceased victim can claim damages and compensation for the injuries suffered in the accident. The insurance company for the negligent driver typically pays a settlement for this type of case.
Also, the family members of the deceased passenger may have a claim for a Michigan wrongful death lawsuit against the driver that police determine was negligent and caused this accident as well as the owners of the waste hauling truck. At the very least, the surviving family members should hire the best possible lawyer to look into these possibilities.
An experienced Michigan car accident lawyer can assist the victim with this type of claim. Accident victims should not speak with the insurance adjuster for the negligent driver before consulting with an attorney.
