Have you been injured in a bus accident in the Sterling Heights/greater Metro Detroit area? A personal injury attorney can help you negotiate with insurance companies so you get the settlement you need and deserve.
One of the top reasons to have an attorney at your side after a bus accident might be the simple fact that you are feeling overwhelmed. That makes sense. It makes sense that you aren’t sure what to do next.
Cochran, Kroll & Associates P.C. provides a free consultation to anyone who has been in a motor vehicle accident — car accidents, bus and truck accidents, or some other type of accident where you have been injured through the negligence of another.
We can guide you through the personal injury claims process and advise you about legal options each step of the way. Sometimes this process goes smoothly, but more often, it doesn’t.
Michigan has a no-fault insurance system that is set up to provide basic personal injury coverage to any person injured in a bus accident. This coverage includes people who do not own a vehicle and therefore don’t have a no-fault policy in their name.
If the accident resulted in serious or permanent impairment, Cochran, Kroll & Associates P.C. can assist you in understanding your specific situation and how to best pursue adequate compensation for all categories of loss — including pain and suffering and other non-medical damages.
Sometimes an insurance claims adjuster will offer you, the injured party, a quick deal if you’ll just sign your name here, here, and also… here. Don’t do it! This is undoubtedly the insurance companies bottom line offer, and rarely takes into account the total picture — both medically and financially.
Senior Partner Eileen Kroll specializes in medical cases at Cochran, Kroll & Associates P.C., and she can help you understand your injuries and medical condition from a legal and medical perspective. Eileen’s training as a Registered Nurse is invaluable in evaluating your injuries and medical records for legal purposes.
Most importantly, if you intend to make a claim against one of the 82 public transit providers operating in Michigan – like Lake Erie Transit, the Detroit Department of Transportation, or the Suburban Mobility Authority For Regional Transportation (SMART) — the claimant (that’s you) must submit written notice to the bus company within 60 days of the accident.
An attorney from Cochran, Kroll & Associates P.C. can help you address your immediate needs following a bus accident, and be your advocate and partner in all settlement discussions, helping you understand the implications and impacts of signing any kind of release. If we decide to work together, it will be a contingency agreement arrangement. That means we don’t get paid until you get your settlement.
