If you were a passenger injured in Detroit bus accident, you do have legal rights. These accidents and injuries occur due to driving errors of the bus driver or the negligent driving of another motorist, and therefore an injured passenger can pursue several types of legal claims.
First the bus passenger is always entitled to make a claim for Michigan No-Fault Insurance benefits. These benefits provide for payment of medical expenses, lost wages, attendant care services, and household services. If the injured passenger does not have his or her own auto insurance policy, a claim can be made against the bus operator or bus company.
Second, the injured bus passenger can also make a claim for personal injuries suffered in the accident. This includes claims for pain and suffering, disability, and other similar type claims. This type of injury claim is made against the driver determined to be at fault in the accident.
