Bus Accident Lawyer in Flint

If you’ve been injured in a bus accident, you may need the services of a personal injury attorney to get the benefits and compensation you need and deserve.

Your Right To Benefits And Compensation

Anyone injured in a bus accident in the state of Michigan is entitled to No-Fault Personal Injury Protection (PIP) coverage, which covers medical bills, a percentage of lost wages, and other expenses related to your recovery process. Even if you don’t have a no-fault insurance policy in your name (i.e. if you do not own a vehicle) then this benefit will be paid by another responsible party, as defined in Michigan law.

If you are more seriously injured, facing a long recovery process, and perhaps permanent disability, your damages represent much more than a mere medical diagnosis, treatment plan, and lost income quantified on a spreadsheet. These damages are referred to as pain and suffering in legal documents and proceedings and are associated with more serious injuries like back, neck, or spinal cord injuries, broken bones, traumatic brain injury, permanent disfigurement.

Cochran, Kroll & Associates P.C. is a law firm that specializes in personal injury cases for accident victims — whether it’s a car accident, bus or truck accident, medical malpractice, slip and fall injury, dog bite, or another kind of accident. We will negotiate, on your behalf a fair and adequate settlement with insurance companies, and if necessary we’ll go to court.

Don’t Sign Anything

If you’ve been injured, don’t sign anything — or even agree to meet with someone from an insurance company — until you’ve talked with an attorney or legal advocate. If you sign a release before you fully evaluate the extent of your injuries, you may not be able to recover additional damages when these other impacts emerge.

What If You Aren’t On The Police Report?

Sometimes, passengers in a Michigan bus accident aren’t listed in the police report. If this has happened to you, it’s important to assemble all other documentary evidence — such as photos of the accident, emergency room records, and other medical note. This may be sufficient to establish your presence on the bus.

Don’t Delay

If you plan to make a claim against one of the 82 public transit providers operating in Michigan — like the Flint Mass Transportation Authority (MTA) in Genesee County — you, as the claimant, must submit written notice to the bus company within 60 days of the accident.

An attorney from Cochran, Kroll & Associates P.C. is ready to meet with you, at your convenience, to learn more about your case and make recommendations. After this free consultation, if we decide to work together, it will be on a contingency fee agreement, which means we only get paid when we achieve a settlement for you.
