Why Hire A Michigan Bus Accident Lawyer?
You need a Michigan bus accident lawyer because these cases are different from other motor vehicle crash cases.

When you’ve been injured in a crash, one of your first questions will most likely be: How much does a Michigan bus accident lawyer cost? Many people imagine that retaining an experienced personal injury attorney will be too expensive. Not so with our law firm. We will never ask you to pay any fees unless and until we win your case. Our nationally recognized injury attorneys work on a contingency fee, so we only get paid if we win your case and you receive a settlement. You don’t pay anything up front or out-of-pocket unless and until a legal recovery is made for you. Only when funds are recovered for your case will your attorney then be paid a percentage of the settlement amount. And you always get our 100% client satisfaction guarantee.
When choosing a Michigan bus accident lawyer, the most important quality to look for is experience. You want an attorney who understands the law and specializes in helping people injured in these types of crash cases receive full and fair compensation. It’s also important that your attorney practices in the geographical area where the crash happened. With 5 law offices throughout the state, our attorneys have had cases with nearly every bus company and transportation entity in the state. Lastly, look for an attorney whose reviews show caring, communication, responsiveness, and results.
If you have lots of questions, that’s natural. Some of the questions that our Michigan bus accident lawyers most frequently get asked include: (1) Does it matter that I didn’t see the crash because I was a passenger and the bus driver says he was not at fault?; (2) What should I tell my employer and how can I collect wage loss if I cannot return to work?; (3) What No-Fault benefits am I entitled to?; (4) How long do I have to file a claim?; (5) How likely is the bus company to settle?; (6) What would a case like mine be worth?; and (7) What do I need to do now? My advice is that, before you meet with your attorney for the first time, write down all of your questions that you want to ask – and all of the details you think your attorney will want to know.
Each case is unique, so it’s a difficult question to answer, but the following factors can help answer how long it may take to get a settlement in your case: your injuries; current and future medical needs; whether you are partially or fully disabled from working; whether your injuries resulted in an impairment that affects your ability to lead your normal life; whether a governmental entity or transportation authority is involved; the experience, track record and reputation of your attorney (attorneys who are known for going to trial can settle cases for money and often much faster because this increases risk and exposure); and the insurance companies insuring the bus company and insurance limits.
