If you or someone you love sustains injuries in an auto accident, the road to recovery can be long and challenging. Serious auto accidents can result in spinal cord injuries, brain injuries, and other permanent disabilities. Personal injury lawyers can help make the process less strenuous by educating you on your rights and providing legal advice.
The seasoned car accident lawyers at Cochran, Kroll & Associates, P.C., law office in Livonia, Michigan, can assist you in filing a lawsuit or a compensation claim.
Not everyone who is involved in a car accident needs to hire an auto accident attorney. However, there are several situations where hiring a lawyer is necessary. If you are at fault in a serious collision where other parties are harmed, a personal injury attorney can protect you from legal claims that someone may file against you.
You should consider hiring a lawyer to help with personal injury claims if you’ve been unable to return to work after a few days or if you can’t participate in your usual daily activities. In this case, an attorney can help you seek non-economic damages as compensation for pain and suffering, emotional and mental trauma. Your lawyer can also help you file for payment of lost wages and medical bills related to the accident.
For personal injury cases where an insurance company refuses to pay or is delaying compensation, it’s critical to have a lawyer in your corner to fight for your rights. Insurance companies are concerned with protecting their interests, and you shouldn’t settle a severe claim on your own without the presence of a practicing attorney.
The statute of limitations on filing claims for property damage and personal injury in the state of Michigan is three years from the date of the accident. To ensure you don’t miss the deadline, it’s vital to contact a reliable lawyer as early as possible to begin filing your claim.
At Cochran, Kroll & Associates, P.C., the team has experience in practice areas, including motor vehicle accidents, motorcycle accident claims, and medical malpractice cases. Senior partner and registered nurse Eileen Kroll can provide insight into settling your case through your medical records related to the accident.
