Whether you were a passenger on the bus, in another vehicle, or a pedestrian, if you’ve been injured in an accident involving a bus, an experienced bus accident attorney can help you recover both medical and nonmedical damages.
If you’ve sustained only minor injuries in the bus accident, no-fault personal injury protection (PIP) insurance — either your own or from another responsible party — could be all the coverage you need.
But sometimes even simple straightforward claims become complicated when the injured party doesn’t carry personal no-fault insurance (i.e. a bus driver doesn’t own a vehicle). In these situations, a no-fault PIP insurance claim could be filed with the insurer of one of several possible responsible parties.
Cochran, Kroll & Associates P.C. can meet with you any time, at your convenience, for a free consultation. Depending on your situation and injuries, the recent (2019) changes to coverage limits in Michigan’s no-fault legislation could affect how you decide to proceed.
One of the top reasons to have an attorney at your side after a bus accident is the simple fact that you are feeling overwhelmed. That makes sense. It makes sense that you aren’t sure what to do next, or exactly how to proceed.
Cochran, Kroll & Associates P.C. provides a free consultation to anyone who has been in a motor vehicle accident — car accidents, bus accident cases, or some other type of vehicular accident where you have been injured through a driver’s negligence.
We’re here to guide you through the personal injury claims process and advise you about your legal options each step of the way.
If you are seriously injured, an attorney can help you recover compensation for damages beyond your basic medical expenses. No-fault coverage may be fine for short-term needs, but how will you pay your medical bills in the future? Will you be able to work at the same job when you recover? Will you be able to return to work at all? Are you facing permanent disability and/or disfigurement?
An attorney from Cochran, Kroll & Associates P.C. can provide legal advice and assist you in understanding your specific situation, and how to best pursue adequate compensation for all categories of loss — including pain and suffering.
And don’t sign anything from any insurance company until you consult with an attorney. If a claim is to be made against one of the 82 public transit providers operating in Michigan, the claimant must submit written notice to the bus company within 60 days of the accident.
