Jeffrey A. Bussell has been an auto accident attorney in Michigan Auto Law’s pre-litigation unit since 2004. Jeff works closely with auto accident victims in the early stages of their lawsuits, helping them recover important No-Fault insurance benefits and making certain they receive the necessary medical treatment for a full recovery.
I had a car accident and I've never been through a lawsuit like this before. I have two Master's degrees, but learning about the law and understanding my case was a whole different world. Jeffrey Bussell was a wonderful attorney and made it all easy. He was in contact with me anytime I needed him to be. He was very helpful, very thorough. He was amazing. He got all the records needed for my case. He called me to check on me. When I called he would always either answer or call me right back. He was very comforting and assuring. He was always very clear and concise and made sure I understood everything that was going on. I just want to thank Jeff for everything he did to help me after my car accident. I really trust him.
To have an attorney on my side who was looking out for my needs was great
By Anonymous, Warren September 26, 0014
I'm in law enforcement, so I wanted a high profile place to handle my car accident case, not one of the lawyers that are in your face on television. Michigan Auto Law seemed much more professional and protective of its clients. I found them online and chose this firm after reading about how happy their other clients were. After my accident, I was unclear of what benefits I was entitled. I called State Farm and they weren't informative. But when I called Michigan Auto Law, everything was explained to me in a way that I could perfectly understand by attorney Jeff Bussell. Ian Freed handled my auto accident lawsuit. To have an attorney on my side who was looking out for my needs was great. I was pleased with how Ian took care of everything. If I had a question, Ian and Jeff answered promptly and always called me back. They were very attentive to phone calls, meetings, everything. This communication and knowledge helped get me to a settlement I'm absolutely happy with. Ian gave me a lot of information to make my decision and he guided me to a direction so he could settle my case for much more than the insurance company was offering.
In great hands with Jeff Bussell!
By Grant Goodman, Farmington Hills May 19, 0014
Oh boy did you put me in great hands. Jeff is the man. I can't say enough amazing things about how he prioritized me, honed in on the exact issue and gave me the strategies to overcome this overzealous claim from my insurance company for attendant care. Spot-on!
I couldn't have asked for a better attorney
By Danielle Rosenberger, Vermontville December 23, 0013
Jeff Bussell was an outstanding attorney. He really fought for me. He followed up with everything he said he would do. Jeff got everything for my settlement and my no fault benefits. I didn't have to talk to any of the insurance people, which was great. He handled it all for me. I couldn't have asked for a better attorney.
Michigan Auto Law specializes in traumatic brain injury and they care
By Carey DeCamp, Gobels October 23, 0013
My husband was hit from behind by a drunk driver doing well over 100 miles per hour. My husband's life will never be the same from his injuries, specifically his traumatic brain injuries. I knew I had to find an attorney who knows what they're doing and that's why I chose Michigan Auto Law. I could see their clients are happy and that they specialize in traumatic brain injury. I found they care at Michigan Auto Law. My attorneys have been engaged in every step of the process. Our attorneys Kevin and Amy are a compassionate team. Everybody that we worked with Jeff, Joshua, Amy and Kevin and Elize. They are very helpful and professional. My husband and I were very happy with them, especially not knowing how such a lawsuit would work out. When it's all said and done, I couldn't have asked for more. We are very satisfied.
I couldn't have asked for more from an attorney
By B.G., Kalamazoo July 19, 0013
I was referred to Michigan Auto Law because they are known for handling commercial truck accidents. We were rear ended by a semi truck. I wanted to know, what were the options? What do I look for? What do I expect? I had a very positive experience with Jeff Bussell. Jeff provided some very sound legal advice that answered all of my questions and helped me when I was getting nowhere with my insurance company. He sincerely wanted to help me. It wasn't just a business transaction. I couldn't have asked for more from an attorney.
Hurt terribly after a SMART bus hit us from behind
By John Peake, Sterling Heights July 03, 0013
My wife and I were hurt terribly after a SMART bus hit us from behind. I couldn't stand the throbbing in the back of my head due to the accident and our medical bills were piling up. We called Michigan Auto Law. The first attorney we spoke with was Jeff Bussell and we were very impressed by him. He assured us we had a case and explained everything to us about what to expect during our lawsuit, the No Fault laws and what to do next. We also had Alison Duffy and Bobby Raitt representing us. They helped us keep a positive attitude. We had three mediations and they fought for us. We kept receiving letters from our insurance companies saying they weren't paying our medical bills. Alison and Bob made sure we got our benefits. They answered all of our questions and always reassured us. We had faith in their legal ability that they would do the best they could for us - and they did.
Jeff made me feel comfortable with the whole process of my injury lawsuit.

Felt like I knew my lawyer for years
By Brenda Johnson, Saginaw September 21, 0012
This law firm is quick. They helped me right away. As soon as I needed help, they took down all of my information and made sure I had all of the information I needed. We got to come in right away, we got to talk to Jeff our attorney personally, to a paralegal. We felt like he cared what was going on with us. He was so thorough and friendly. I felt like I had known him for years. Jeff let us know what to expect, about the timing and investigation. Jeff made sure that we did what we had to do. It really paid off because they cared about me extraordinarily.
I can't even say enough to thank him.
By Heidi Heath, Fremont June 20, 0012
Last summer I was rear ended by a semi. I found Jeff Bussell when I needed an attorney, and he was awesome. He returned all of my calls in a timely fashion. He answered all of my questions about everything - my insurance coverage, my medical coverage, my rights in my truck accident lawsuit. And treated me like he cared about my case and cared about me. I feel very safe with Jeff. I would still be spinning my wheels right now if it were not for Jeff. I really give him a lot of credit for digging deeper to advocate for me. I can't even say enough to thank him.
He was very professional, concise and detail-oriented
By Heidi Patton, Howell
A lot of people wouldn't put the words lawyer or sensitive in the same sentence. But Jeff Bussell from Michigan Auto Law is just that. He was my first point of contact at the auto accident law firm. He was very professional, concise and detail-oriented. But I really appreciated the sensitivity he showed when I had to get photos of my injuries. He was very concerned with my comfort and had his female secretary take the pictures. I was having comprehension issues from my auto accident, and he was also sensitive to that. He would give me short, understandable questions so I still knew exactly what was going on with my lawsuit. I would highly recommend Michigan Auto Law, and Jeff in particular, for anyone who has been in a crash. My car accident lawsuit was not long and drawn out, and my attorney was very diligent in speaking the legal language on my level. Jeff made it clear to do what he could in his power to get me all the compensation that was available, given the driver who hit me was poorly insured. It was nice to know this since I was in the hospital with severe back injuries.
Jeff spearheads preliminary orientation of new clients. He is always here to answer clients’ questions and help them through the process of filing an auto accident lawsuit. Jeff performs thorough liability analysis in response to each client’s unique circumstances. He also advises people on how to properly approach their No-Fault insurers, as he is passionate about helping accident victims get the benefits they’re entitled.
Jeff’s goal is to make certain that each lawsuit he handles is properly positioned for settlement discussions and if necessary, litigation. Jeff uses his previous No-Fault litigation experience and knowledge of the issues and injuries involved to obtain the best possible results for his clients. He has great success in settling cases before litigation is required.
