Causes of Michigan Bus Accidents

Our bus accident lawyers file lawsuits for passengers of buses who are injured due to the negligent driving of the bus driver or a defect on the bus.

Other cases are filed by individuals who were not on the bus, but rather were in cars, on motorcycles or bicycles, or pedestrians and were injured due to the negligence of the bus driver. Cases are typically filed against the negligent bus driver and the company or city that owns and operates the bus.

Paying Referral Fees for Michigan Bus Accident Cases

We handle all bus accident cases on a one-third contingency fee basis. Under Michigan law, we are required to deduct the case expenses from the total settlement amount before calculation our contingent fee. For most bus accident cases, we pay the referring attorney a one-third referral fee. We guarantee this fee in writing immediately upon being retained by the client for representation. We also confirm the referral source in our case management software.

How Attorneys Refer Their Bus Accident Cases to Us

Referring your bus accident cases to us is easy. You refer us your client by doing the following:

  • Call (8oo) 606-1717 to speak with one attorneys first to discuss the case to see if we are interested in the referral.
  • E-mail Lawrence J. Buckfire at to provide information about the case
  • Have your client call us directly and mention that an attorney referred the case to our firm

If your preference is to have your client call us directly, make sure that the client tells us that you are the referring attorney. Many clients do not remember to provide that information and you may not be properly credited with the referral. We strongly suggest that you mail or fax us a letter confirming that you are the lawyer that referred the case.

Michigan Accident Attorney Referral Review

I handle personal injury cases in Kentucky. I often get calls for injuries that happened in Michigan. The Buckfire Law Firm has been my go to lawyers for years. They always handle the case I refer with compassion and professionalism. I have the utmost confidence in them. Even more important, the clients I refer thank me for the referral and rave about The Buckfire Law Firm.
