If you’ve been injured in a bus accident in Warren — or anywhere in the metro Detroit area — having an attorney at your side can help you avoid making mistakes, and guide you through the claims process.
Clients often tell us that they wished they’d called us sooner. Even if you believe your insurance claim process will be simple and straightforward, consulting with an attorney can help ensure that it remains that way.
A personal injury attorney from Cochran, Kroll & Associates will be happy to meet with you for a free consultation, learn more about the bus accident, your injuries — including the long-term impacts of your injuries — and provide legal advice about how best to move forward. If we decide to work together, it will be on a contingency fee agreement, which means we don’t get paid until you get your settlement.
Working with an attorney as soon after the accident as possible can hopefully take some of your worries away, answer your questions as they come up, and help you understand each step of the process.
Often the full extent of your injuries — and the ultimate consequences of those injuries — can’t be determined in the immediate aftermath of a serious motor vehicle accident. There may be more to consider when you think about fair and adequate compensation.
Serious injuries usually mean a much more significant loss. Will you be able to return to the same job when you recover? Will you be able to return to work at all? Are you facing permanent disability? If a family member or friend has been killed in the bus accident, the economic impact on survivors can be profound, and the ramifications of lost income on a surviving spouse and children.
Depending on your situation, you may decide to pursue a personal injury claim or wrongful death lawsuit to recover damages.
Cochran, Kroll & Associates P.C. has a strong track record of success in helping individuals and families negotiate and fight for the settlement they need and deserve.
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 the Suburban Mobility Authority For Regional Transportation (SMART) — the claimant (that’s you) must submit written notice to the bus company within 60 days of the accident.
An attorney from Cochran, Kroll & Associates P.C. can help you address your immediate needs following a bus accident, and be your advocate and partner in all settlement discussions. If we decide to work together, it will be a contingency agreement arrangement. That means we don’t get paid until you get your settlement.
