If you have been involved in a car accident in Michigan and sustained injuries, it’s important to act promptly. You must file by the one-year deadline for a PIP no-fault benefits claim to ensure you receive your full benefit entitlements.
You can rely on your Arabic-speaking auto accident lawyer to help you file a timely claim with your PIP insurance to receive benefits. Rula can negotiate with the insurance company on your behalf to settle your claim to cover your medical expenses and loss of wages due to the accident.
Depending on the severity of your injury, our Arabic speaking car accident attorney in Michigan can help you determine whether you qualify for pain and suffering compensation. We can review your medical records to understand the extent of your injuries and recovery process to assess the appropriate compensation for your pain and suffering.
Healthcare professionals owe their patients the degree of care a reasonable person would exercise in similar circumstances. However, medical professionals may make mistakes during treatment, such as misdiagnosis, surgical and medication mistakes, resulting in patient harm.
When you suffer an injury due to poor medical care, you have the right to file a medical malpractice claim. Our medical malpractice attorneys have experience handling cases involving birth injuries, ER malpractice, and surgical errors and burns. Rula will ensure you understand the claims procedure and receive a fair settlement.
Defective or dangerous products cause numerous accidents in the United States, and many of these injuries affect vulnerable populations such as children and older people. Consumers can be at risk from everyday products such as cleaning agents, beds, and televisions.
A product liability claim is when a manufacturer or seller is held responsible for offering a defective product to consumers. In Michigan, you have to prove the following to bring a product liability claim:
- You sustained injuries or a loss
- The product had a defect
- The defect caused your injury
- You used the product as intended
Our Arabic-speaking attorney can represent you for product liability lawsuits such as hernia mesh and hip replacement cases. If you have been harmed or incurred damages due to a faulty product or medical device, our attorneys can help.
Over 20,000 people file new workers’ compensation claims each year for time off work to recover from workplace injuries and illnesses. Workplace injuries, such as traumatic brain injuries, can occur in many workplaces, such as warehouses and construction sites, due to hazardous conditions.
Many Michigan workers who suffer workplace injuries are unaware of their rights to workers’ compensation benefits, including wage loss, re-training, and vocational rehabilitation.
Our Arabic-speaking personal injury attorney in Michigan, with experience in workplace accidents, can help you obtain your workplace benefits. As part of the Cochran, Kroll, & Associates, P.C. team, Rula understands the Michigan workers’ compensation system. She can assist you with submitting your claim and inform you of the legal options available.
Personal Injury Lawyers
Personal injury lawsuits can arise from various incidents like motor vehicle accidents and medical malpractice due to negligence by the other party. To win a personal injury lawsuit, you must prove the defendant’s negligence and failure to provide reasonable care, which directly resulted in injury or damage.
Contacting an Arabic-speaking personal injury attorney can help you get the best settlement possible. Rula can assist you with your personal injury claim and help you receive the compensation you deserve for your lost wages and medical bills.
How an Arabic-Speaking Personal Injury Lawyer Can Help
The number of people in Michigan with Arabic-speaking ancestry has grown by over 42% from 2000 to 2016. According to the U.S. Census, the number of Michiganders claiming Arab ancestry has more than doubled since 1980, when ethnic origins were first measured.
As Michigan’s Arab American population grows, so does the need for Arabic-speaking lawyers to assist them when injured due to someone else’s neglect or carelessness.
Rula Aoun is committed to providing legal assistance to members of the Arabic-speaking communities with their personal injury claims. She takes pride in her ability to help clients navigate the complexities of the legal system and fully understand the claim process from start to finish.
The benefits of working with an Arabic-speaking lawyer include the following:
- Direct communication: Having an Arabic-speaking personal injury attorney in Michigan allows clear and effective communication. You can discuss your case in your native language and take a more active role in obtaining justice.
- Improved access to justice: People who are not native English speakers may find it challenging to understand their legal options. Choosing a lawyer who speaks your language and understands your culture helps you build more trust in the legal system.
- Transparent translation: Although official court proceedings must be conducted in English, having an Arabic-speaking lawyer present can ensure accurate translation during proceedings. This will help to address any discrepancies immediately and ensure the accuracy of the information on record.
