Car crashes can occur randomly at any time in life. On many occasions, they are unavoidable or split-second accidents. Preparing for a car crash is nearly impossible. However, after a motor vehicle accident occurs you can be proactive. When you properly utilize legal resources after an auto accident, you can receive the compensation you deserve. Cochran, Kroll & Associates, P.C. can help you navigate your next move.
Our law firm will be by your side through the entire process and we will ensure that you receive the compensation that you are owed. Our resident auto accident expert, Terry Cochran, is a master of Michigan’s No-Fault auto accident law. Your best chance at receiving restitution after your accident is having a qualified legal representative backing you up.
People unfamiliar with Michigan’s No-Fault law automatically assume they can not pursue any financial recompense. This is completely false. Also, your insurance company has no obligation to make you aware of this truth. Your lawyer will provide you with a better understanding of the law and show you what kind of compensation you are eligible for.
Under Michigan Law, auto owners are required to have No-Fault insurance which means that in the event of a car crash the individuals involved have their insurance companies pay for injuries and damages done to property and properly parked vehicles.
Through our legal services, we can educate you about a process called a No-Fault Benefits application. You will have to pursue No-Fault benefits through your insurance company. We will be by your side through this entire process ensuring that you get the best deal possible.
There are a number of scenarios in which you are entitled to certain benefits for compensation. We will inform you how you should file your application so you can take maximum advantage of these benefits. Medical bills and car repair costs can begin to mount, so earning back money is in your best interest after a car crash. The best way to do that is to have legal help.
If you are not covered by any Personal Injury Protection you can make a compensation claim against the driver at-fault’s insurance company. This will take an experienced and capable legal team to accomplish.
Your no-fault driver’s insurance can offer restitution upwards of 85% of lost wages over a three-year time frame. Your insurance company will usually fight these claims so you’ll need legal representation in order to win restitution.
If the injuries in question are permanent or debilitating then you are eligible for compensation. You will need to provide extensive medical records in order to prove your eligibility and to build your case. Your chances at winning are much higher if you have the proper attorney representing you.
