Bus Accident Lawyers

Any motor vehicle poses a significant threat to the lives of those on board as well as those on the road with the motor vehicle, but buses are especially dangerous for everyone on the road. They’re big, they’re bulky, and they don’t handle as well as smaller vehicles. Buses aren’t equipped to make abrupt stops, to handle quick turns, and to drive safely without putting anyone else in danger. They’re vehicles that pose a significantly higher threat to those on board than most any other vehicle, and being a passenger on a bus can be quite scary.

This is not to say buses should be taken off the road, but it does offer the suggestion that bus maintenance should be on par at all times, and that all bus drivers should have ample training, proper skill, and the experience required to handle a vehicle so large and bulky. Perhaps this would eliminate some of the thousands of bus accidents that occur on a yearly basis in the United States. Approximately 300 bus accidents each year result in fatalities, and it’s devastating. If you or someone you love is injured or killed in a bus accident, you need to know what steps to take and who to call.

Ramifications of a Bus Accident

Bus accidents are dangerous, and the ramifications of a bus accident are numerous. The injuries sustained in bus accidents aren’t regulated to only those on board the bus. They can occur to those who are in another car that is hit by a bus or in an accident caused by a bus. Injuries in bus accidents can be deadly. These are large vehicles, and many of them are not properly equipped with enough seatbelts for all passengers. Injuries are not limited to the following, but they often include the following:

– Broken bones
– Fractures
– Lacerations
– Paralysis
– Head injuries
– Brain injuries
– Spinal cord injuries
– Broken appendages
– Burns
– Death

When an accident like this occurs, the effects of the accident are not limited to just the injuries a person faces. It’s so much more than that, and much of that has a life-long effect on the victim of a bus accident. Any victim with injuries will incur medical bills from doctor appointments. If those injuries are severe, many will see the doctor many times over the course of several weeks and even months. If the victim of a bus accident suffers catastrophic injuries, they’ll spend the rest of their live visiting the doctor and undergoing medical treatment.

Those who suffer catastrophic injury often require round-the-clock medical care or long-term assisted living facility care. It’s expensive, and many insurance companies don’t provide payment for those types of things. Now victims are being financially punished in addition to their injuries. If a victim cannot return to work or loses wages while in recovery or rehabilitation following a bus accident, they’re unable to pay their bills.

If a victim is killed in a bus accident, their family is left without one income. They are left with funeral expenses, and life is going to change forever all because a bus accident made it turn upside down. If someone else is to blame for a bus accident, it’s their responsibility to offer compensation to the victims whose lives they forever changed.

What Can A Bus Accident Attorney Do?

A bus accident attorney with experience and knowledge working these cases helps victims seek compensation for their injuries. We launch an investigation to find the cause of the accident, whether it’s an inexperienced driver without proper training or one who was under the influence behind the wheel, and we make sure the at-fault party is held responsible for the damages they caused to the victims.

– Bus drivers
– Bus manufacturers
– Bus company owners
– The state government if the bus is city operated

Sometimes the accident is caused by malfunction, by a bus that’s not been properly maintained, or by a driver who doesn’t know how to properly drive a bus. If this occurs, it’s their responsibility to take care of the victims and ease the financial burden this accident caused in your life. The process includes much of the following when we begin our investigation:

– Review of the accident reports
– Review of police reports
– Review witness statements
– Re-interview witnesses
– Review photos of the scene
– Look into medical reports
– Discuss the case with the opposing party’s council

What Compensation Am I Entitled To?

As the victim of a bus accident, your entire life has been turned upside down. You’re entitled to compensation to cover many costs, including the following common costs associated with bus accidents:

– Lost wages
– Pain and suffering
– Medical bills
– Death
– Funeral expenses
– Long-term care

There’s nothing bus accident victims should have to pay for on their own when they are injured because of someone else’s negligence. Our job is to find the person or company responsible for this accident and make sure they take care of who they injure. Bus accident attorneys have ample experience working with victims of bus accidents who cannot handle their own case.

Being involved in a bus accident is a life-changing experience, and not for the good of anyone’s family. It’s confusing, it’s scary, and there are many emotions going through the minds of victims and their families following bus accidents, and it’s up to the victim and/or their family to make the call to an experienced bus accident attorney. We are here for you, and we want to get started putting the pieces together for your case so we can get you the compensation you deserve for the accident that changed your life forever. The longer it takes to call, the less time we have to put your case together. Call now, and we can get started on a path to recovery for you and your family in a financial sense.
