The days following a car accident can be stressful and expensive, filled with medical appointments, property damage assessments, and emotional and mental distress. It can all be overwhelming, and you’ll need help getting your life back in order.
The law office of Cochran, Kroll & Associates, P.C., is proud to serve the Dearborn, Michigan area, offering the legal advice and representation motor vehicle accident victims need and deserve. We can help you navigate the various steps for filing a claim and getting all the compensation you are entitled to, whether you’re involved in an accident with a car, truck, bus, motorcycle, boat, or other type of vehicle.
When you or a loved one suffers injury because of an accident, physical pain, emotional issues, and mental distress may result. You may also be unsure of your ability to work going forward, causing additional anxiety and stress.
Compensation can help you get back on your feet faster. By hiring a Michigan vehicle accident lawyer, you may be able to seek both economic and non-economic damages in your injury case.
Economic damages include concrete and easily calculated expenses, like medical bills and rehabilitation costs, resulting from the accident. In addition, your personal injury lawyers can seek additional compensation for ongoing and future medical treatments, physical and occupational therapy, and any nursing care required. Lost wages are also considered.
Since not all damages are physical, it’s essential to analyze your injury case to determine any hidden components to seek additional compensation. This is where your case can become extremely complicated and why having a confident personal injury attorney on your side is imperative.
Non-economic damages can include payment for pain and suffering, mental anguish, emotional distress, loss of companionship and consortium, as well as loss of enjoyment in life.
If a death occurs, you may also be able to file a wrongful death lawsuit to help with resulting financial hardship.
The state of Michigan follows no-fault insurance law, meaning that you will automatically be compensated for injuries after an accident. Before filing your insurance claim, however, contact a Vehicle Accident Lawyer in Dearborn to review your case and provide legal advice based on exact details of your personal injury case, particularly when negligence by another is involved.
The dedicated car and vehicle accident lawyer in Dearborn with Cochran, Kroll & Associates, P.C., are experienced in working with insurance companies and filing necessary lawsuits to gain compensation deserved in various practice areas.
