If you’ve been injured in a bus accident, finding an attorney to assist you can be a positive and important early step in your recovery process.
Bus accidents can get complicated, fast. If you’re an injured passenger, you are entitled to Michigan’s No-Fault Personal Injury Protection (PIP) benefits, even if you don’t have any insurance yourself. If you can’t get coverage through a spouse or relative, the next responsible party in line, by Michigan law, is the bus company’s insurance. That’s when things can get challenging because they don’t want to pay unless they absolutely must.
The personal injury lawyers at Cochran, Kroll & Associates P.C. are prepared to assist you in handling all compensation discussions with insurance companies, explain the limitations of no-fault benefits, and advising you and exploring your legal options, every step of the way until we achieve a successful settlement.
Do your injuries involve broken bones; spine, neck, or traumatic brain injuries; permanent disability and/or disfigurement? If so, you will need an experienced personal injury attorney at your side to help you understand, in legal terms, your medical situation and other losses, and your right to seek compensation for those losses.
Will you be able to return to the same job when you recover? Will you be able to return to work at all? How will you handle all your lost wages long-term? How is this injury impacting your life?
Cochran, Kroll & Associates P.C. is a law firm dedicated to helping individuals and families who have been injured in an accident of some kind, due to someone else’s negligence, to pursue a personal injury claim to recover damages. This includes wrongful death lawsuits, medical malpractice, and other types of cases.
If a claim is to be made against one of the 82 public transit providers operating in Michigan — like the Capital Area Transportation Authority (CATA) — the claimant (you) must submit written notice to the bus company within 60 days of the accident.
We’re ready to meet with you in whatever setting makes the most sense — our offices, your home or hospital room, or some other location — to learn more about your situation and help you move forward. After this free consultation, if we decide to work together, it will be on a contingency fee agreement. This means we only get paid when we achieve a settlement for you.
