If you have been injured in a bus accident and are looking for a lawyer, you’ve made an excellent decision.
A bus accident injury case can get complicated, fast. If you have minor injuries, Michigan No-Fault Personal Injury Protection (PIP) insurance — either your own or from another party — is probably all the coverage you need.
But if the accident has resulted in serious or permanent impairment, you may wish to file a third-party claim or lawsuit against the bus driver, the bus company, or some other liable party, to recover the full compensation you deserve.
Cochran, Kroll & Associates, P.C. is a law firm dedicated to helping individuals and families who have been injured in an accident to recover fair and adequate compensation for their injuries and losses. We handle complex personal injury cases resulting from car accidents, truck and bus accidents, medical malpractice, slip and fall injuries, wrongful death lawsuits, and other kinds of accidents that are the result of someone’s negligence.
If you are seriously injured, you’ll need the assistance of an attorney to recover compensation for damages beyond your basic medical bills. How will you pay your medical bills in the future? Will you be able to work at all? Are you facing permanent disability?
To recover additional damages, your personal injury lawyer will work with you to file a personal injury claim against one or more negligent parties.
The team at Cochran, Kroll & Associates P.C. will assemble documentation, interview witnesses, gather expert testimony, and develop a legal strategy. We’ll be at your side every step of the way, helping you understand the ramifications — the pros and cons — of any settlement offers made as our case develops.
If your claim is to be made against one of the 82 public transit providers operating in Michigan — like the Interurban Transit Partnership (The Rapid) — the claimant must submit written notice to the bus company within 60 days of the accident.
We are ready to meet with you at any time, in whatever setting makes the most sense to you — our offices, your home or hospital room, or other location. 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 you get your settlement.
