Filing a Claim for Bus Accident Injuries

There are two types of claims a Detroit bus accident victim may be entitled to file. The first claim is a Michigan no-fault insurance benefit claim, which would include payment for medical bills, lost wages for time missed off of work due to your injuries, attendant care services (in-home nursing care), and more. In Michigan, the order of priority in which you should file a no-fault insurance claim for a Detroit bus accident starts first with your (injured bus passenger's) own auto insurance company. Under Michigan no-fault law, your auto insurance company is liable to pay for no-fault benefits.

However, if you do not have an auto insurance policy, you can file a claim under:

  • Your spouse's insurance company
  • A live-in relative's auto insurance company
  • The city of Detroit

The second claim an injured passenger can make is for their pain and suffering damages, also known as a personal injury lawsuit. Again, every bus accident case is different, however, the type of injury claim is typically made against the driver determined to be at fault in the bus accident. Michigan law tends to favor the bus companies versus the passengers, therefore it is not always easy to recover compensation for your injuries as a victim. However, if you or your family was injured, it is in your best interest to consult with an attorney to determine if you have a claim.

We Can Help You After A Detroit Bus Accident

Our Michigan bus accident lawyers recently were interviewed by Fox 2 News on behalf of our client, Shykesha G., who was injured as a passenger in a Detroit City Bus Accident. Due to the fact that she did not have her own auto insurance policy, the city was responsible for her no-fault benefits. We filed a claim against the city to collect payment of her benefits. The city agreed to pay, but failed to pay the settlement. Our firm took the story to Fox 2 News to find out why the city was failing to pay, in hopes that this will prevent the city from failing to pay other injured bus passengers what they deserve. We were able to get her case settled within 24 hours from that interview.
