When people get hurt because of the negligence of other people, they deserve to get compensated for their injuries. The Cochran Firm Detroit is here to fight for the people of Detroit when they’ve been hurt and would be happy to give you a free consultation today. Our firm specializes in many types of personal injury cases including car accidents, truck accidents, motorcycle accidents, people hit by a car while crossing the street or while riding their bike, dog bite attacks, and slip and fall incidents.
These types of claim originated in “common law” which is based on old laws and judges’ rulings stemming all the way back to England. Over time, many of these “common laws” were codified, which is a fancy way of saying clearly drafted and defined by the legislature and turned into laws. For example, the Michigan No-Fault act which governs automobile negligence claims. The Michigan No-Fault acts clearly lays out what a person must show in order to get compensated for their pain and suffering after they’ve been hurt in a car accident. Generally, a person must show that they are less than 50% at fault for the accident, that they sustained an injury in the accident, that there is testing or other objective findings that can verify that injury, and that the injury has negatively impacted that person’s life. These laws are then interpreted by courts. As experts in personal injury, the attorneys at the Cochran Firm Detroit can expertly counsel you after an injury and explain to you the law how we can best get you compensated for an injury.
