Bus Accident Lawyer in Livonia

If you’ve been injured in a bus accident in Livonia — or anywhere in the metro Detroit area — finding an attorney to help you can make a big difference in the compensation you ultimately receive.

Dealing With Insurance Companies

In Michigan, if you have been injured in a bus accident, you are entitled to receive Michigan No-Fault Personal Injury Protection (PIP) benefits — even if you don’t own a vehicle and carry a no-fault insurance policy in your name. Even claims for minor injuries can get complicated, and finding a personal injury attorney with experience representing clients like you is a good idea — and do it as soon after the accident as possible.

If your injuries are more serious — broken bones, spinal cord, back, neck, or traumatic head injuries, involve permanent or serious disfigurement, or the serious impairment of an important body function — then you will need a personal injury lawyer to help you understand your right to claim additional damages and file a personal injury lawsuit.

Don’t sign anything from an insurance company regarding your claim until you have some legal advice.

The professionals at Cochran, Kroll & Associates P.C. work with accident victims throughout Michigan. We will negotiate, on your behalf, a fair and adequate settlement with insurance companies, and if necessary we’ll go to court.

Proving Liability

In a bus accident case, a successful personal injury lawsuit generally means that you, the plaintiff, can prove the negligence and liability of the bus driver, bus company, or other entity involved in the crash. This involves assembling evidence, interviewing witnesses, discovering information from the other side, and planning a legal strategy that will persuade a judge and jury that additional pain and suffering damages are necessary.

Cochran, Kroll & Associates P.C. is a personal injury law firm that helps individuals and families who have been injured and impacted by bus accidents — as well as motorcycle accidents, car and truck accidents, medical malpractice and product liability lawsuits, and other situations where someone is injured — or killed — through the negligence of another.

Don’t Procrastinate

Most importantly, if you intend to make a claim against one of the 82 public transit providers operating in Michigan – like the Detroit Department of Transportation or Suburban Mobility Authority For Regional Transportation (SMART) — the claimant must submit written notice to the bus company within 60 days of the accident.

An attorney from Cochran, Kroll & Associates is ready to meet with you at your convenience, learn more about your situation, and make recommendations. After this free consultation, if we decide to work together, it will be on a contingency agreement, which means we don’t get paid until we achieve a settlement for you.
