Bus Accident Lawyer in Ann Arbor

If you’ve been injured in a bus accident — whether you were a passenger on the bus, in another vehicle, or a pedestrian — you may need the help of an attorney to get the compensation and settlement you need and deserve.

No-Fault Insurance Benefits

Individuals injured in Michigan bus accidents are entitled to make a claim for no-fault insurance benefits, which include reimbursement for medical expenses, lost wages, attendant care, and other services you may need while you recover from your injuries.

For minor injuries, no-fault insurance, also known as Personal Injury Protection (or PIP), is usually sufficient. But sometimes it’s not.

The professionals at Cochran, Kroll & Associates P.C. can help you navigate Michigan no-fault insurance rules and regulations when you make your initial claim, help you understand the limitations of PIP, and work with you, if necessary, in filing a personal injury claim against the “at fault” party.

Don’t Wait Too Long

Michigan law dictates that a person injured in a bus crash must file for no-fault PIP benefits within one year of the accident. A personal injury claim must be filed within three years of the accident.

However, if a claim is to be made against one of the 82 public transit providers operating in Michigan — like the Ann Arbor Transportation Authority (AAATA) — the claimant must submit written notice to the bus company within 60 days of the accident.

Don’t sign anything. Sometimes clients tell us that they were approached soon after the crash with a settlement offer. Let us help you understand what it means to sign your name to any piece of paper, and explore the pros and cons of each settlement offer. Sometimes it can take several formal meetings with the bus driver’s insurance company before an agreement can be reached.

Cochran, Kroll & Associates P.C. is a personal injury law firm that has worked with accident victims and their families throughout Michigan. We will negotiate, on your behalf, a fair and adequate settlement with insurance companies, and if necessary we’ll go to court.
