Truck Accident Lawyer In Flint

If you’ve been injured in a motor vehicle accident with a truck, a lawyer can help you get the settlement you deserve.

First Steps

When the accident involves a truck, the impact can be devastating. In 2017, the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) reported that 170,000 people had been injured in an accident involving a large truck or bus, many quite seriously.

If you are seriously injured, one of the first steps should be to contact an attorney as soon as you can for legal advice. Over the years, we’ve had more than one client tell us that they were approached soon after the accident by another trucking accident attorney — one representing the driver of the truck that hit them — offering what seemed to be a very generous settlement. In every case, it turned out that the settlement offer was inadequate, and we were able to secure significantly more compensation for our clients.

Cochran, Kroll & Associates is ready to meet with you at any time, at a place that’s convenient — including your home or hospital room. We’re ready to help you navigate the challenging negotiation process with insurance companies, make sure you don’t skip any steps or miss anything when you make your claim. And if the insurance company doesn’t listen to us? We’re ready to go to court on your behalf.

Understanding Your Injuries

Serious injuries mean that your financial loss is more significant. What will happen if you’re not able to return to the same job — or return to work at all — when you recover? Are you facing permanent disability? What happens then?

Partner Eileen Kroll specializes in medical cases at Cochran, Kroll & Associates P.C. and her training as a Registered Nurse is invaluable in evaluating your injuries for legal purposes. In some situations, we may recommend that specialists been seen or other tests conducted, to provide indisputable evidence and testimony.

Don’t Wait Too Long

Remember that insurance companies are trying to settle for as little as possible, and settling without going to court is something that can benefit both sides. In fact, this is how most cases end, and it is essential that you have an attorney at your side during any negotiations. Sometimes a complex case can go through several rounds of settlement hearings before an agreement is successfully reached.

And if we need to go to court? Involving us in your accident case early on means that we’ll be able to assemble documents, interview witnesses, and gather other evidence while the accident is still relatively recent.

In Michigan, the Statute of Limitations for filing a personal injury case is three years from the date of the accident.
