Every time you leave your home, workplace, or other location, you’re at risk of being involved in some type of motor vehicle accident. Whether a car, truck, bus, motorcycle, or boating accident, all can lead to various injuries, both physical and emotional, and extensive property damage.
The experienced attorneys at Cochran, Kroll & Associates, P.C. understand the different factors involved in each type of vehicle accident and serve the Clinton Township, MI area, and all of Clinton County. We provide the caring and dedicated legal advice and representation all accident injury victims deserve and will seek the rightful compensation you are entitled to.
Following any type of vehicle accident, there are several steps you must take before receiving compensation for medical bills, lost wages, property damage, and other damages. The state of Michigan is a no-fault law state, which means you are entitled to specific benefits regardless of who contributed to the accident.
When dealing with insurance companies, you’ll want a confident negotiator to get the maximum settlement. Experienced personal injury attorneys are highly knowledgeable in the legal requirements and compensation for vehicle accident victims and know exactly how to work with insurance companies.
Another benefit to hiring a vehicle accident attorney is that they compile all the necessary documentation for your particular case, reaching out to various sources on your behalf. These documents may include police accident reports, crash scene photos, witness statements, surveillance videos, and medical records.
Your car accident lawyers will also determine the damages to seek in your case. These may be economic or non-economic damages and involve medical expenses, pain and suffering, or wage loss, among others.
A lawyer can also help you determine what type of lawsuit to file. Many car crashes involve negligence, meaning you will want to file a personal injury lawsuit. If someone dies in an accident, you may want to file a wrongful death lawsuit. Over 36,000 people die as a result of vehicle crashes, and when negligence is involved, taking legal action can help you get past any financial hardships suffered after losing a loved one.
In an instant, your world can change after a vehicle accident. The experienced attorneys with Cochran, Kroll & Associates, P.C., understand this and are here to help you get the compensation you deserve.
