Vehicle accidents are common in the United States and can lead to property damage, brain injuries, spinal cord injuries, and permanent disability. If you are having trouble returning to school or work following a car accident, you should contact a personal injury law firm.
Cochran, Kroll & Associates, P.C., a law office serving Livingston County, can help you seek compensation for lost wages and medical expenses. Personal injury cases in Michigan have resulted in settlements worth millions of dollars. Hiring a skilled Car Accident Attorney in Howell to handle your injury claims can help ensure you get the most compensation possible.
If you are the victim of a motor vehicle accident in Howell, Michigan, your lawyer will communicate with insurance companies on your behalf to minimize delays in processing your claim. While Michigan no-fault insurance will cover a significant portion of your medical bills and lost wages, you may be eligible for further compensation.
If you did not cause the accident, your Car Accident Attorney in Howell can use a tort liability claim to claim additional damages. There are two different types of damages you might receive.
Economic damages refer to financial costs, like medical expenses, prescription drug costs, or physiotherapy. Non-economic damages mean compensation with no specific value, such as payment for your pain and suffering or emotional trauma. The second type can be more challenging to prove, but in cases where you have been severely injured and are not at fault, it can result in a lucrative payout.
In the case of a family member or close friend’s wrongful death, you may be eligible for compensation under the Michigan Wrongful Death Act if you are named as the estate.
Dealing with personal injury claims, wrongful death lawsuits, and financial stress on top of physical injury isn’t something anyone should have to handle alone. The legal team at Cochran, Kroll & Associates, P.C., are eager to assist you with all your auto accident claims.
