Have you been injured in a bus accident in the metro Detroit area? Depending on your situation, you may need legal help to get the settlement you need and deserve.
If you are a bus accident victim, you are entitled to no-fault Personal Injury Protection (PIP) benefits whether or not you have a personal no-fault policy. If you don’t own a no-fault policy yourself, by Michigan law these benefits will be paid by the insurance company of a spouse, or the owner/registrant of the bus, or the driver of the bus, or by the Michigan Assigned Claims Plan (MACP), which is administered by the Michigan Automobile Insurance Placement Facility (MAIPF).
These benefits cover your medical expenses, a percentage of lost wages, attendant care, and other costs associated with your treatment and recovery. For most accidents, this coverage is sufficient, but if your injuries are more serious, it probably isn’t.
The professional team at Cochran, Kroll & Associates P.C. is ready to meet with you at your convenience to review your situation and make recommendations. After this initial free consultation, if we decide to work together, we will represent you on a contingency fee agreement, which means no fees until the case is settled.
Depending on your situation, the details of the bus accident, and the seriousness of your injuries, there may be multiple factors to consider — and multiple possible liable parties involved — when making your claim.
Cochran, Kroll & Associates P.C. can identify the liable parties involved in your case, negotiate with insurance companies, and help you evaluate your injuries for legal purposes. Will you be able to return to work? How will you pay your medical bills? Are you facing permanent disability? We can help you find answers and get the compensation you need to face the future with confidence.
Michigan law says 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.
Cochran, Kroll & Associates P.C. is a personal injury law firm that handles all types of accident cases — car accidents, motorcycle accidents, truck, and bus accidents, slip and fall injuries, workplace injuries, dog bites, medical malpractice, wrongful death lawsuits, — and we look forward to helping you and your family.
