Causes of Bus Crashes
Our attorneys file lawsuits for passengers who are injured in any type of bus accident case, including those where a bus driver was negligent. Injuries may occur when a bus driver:
- Operates the vehicle while passengers are not secure
- Is distracted
- Drives under the influence of drugs/alcohol
- Commits traffic violations
Cases may also be filed if a bus defect, such as damaged security handles or brakes, cause a crash. The parties who can file for compensation are not just injured passengers, but also any motorist, pedestrian, or bicyclist who might have been hurt after a crash. Whatever the nature of the referral, our attorneys are ready to take on the case.
Paying Referral Fees for Michigan Bus Accident Cases
Each one of our bus accident cases are taken on a one-third contingency fee basis. Because of Michigan state law, we have to deduct case expenses from the full settlement amount before calculating our fee.
For most bus crash cases, we pay the referring attorney a one-third referral fee. As soon as we retain the client for representation, we guarantee this fee in writing. We also confirm the referral source in our case management software.
By referring a case to us, your client will receive exceptional care. The Michigan referral fee law does not require you or your firm to provide any co-counsel or assistance during the client’s case. This means case referrals to Buckfire Law Firm carry no hidden monetary costs or extra time. These factors make referral cases an easy and rewarding decision for everyone involved.
How Attorneys Refer Their Bus Accident Cases to Us
It’s easy to refer a Michigan bus accident case to us. You can refer a case by:
- Calling (8oo) 606-1717 to speak with one of our attorneys to discuss the case
- E-mailing Lawrence J. Buckfire at email@example.com to provide information about the case
- Having your client call us directly and mention that an attorney referred the case to our firm
If you prefer 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. Additionally, we strongly suggest that you mail or fax us a letter confirming that you are the lawyer that referred the case. Doing so can help us organize the case and help you earn the proper compensation when the client reaches a settlement.
