Using a bus for transportation is one of the eco-friendlier ways to commute. Like with all methods of transportation there are dangers associated riding the bus. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration over 300 per year end in death. Of the crashes that are not fatal, the cost of damages is extremely high and injuries are severe. If you were injured or a loved one was killed in a crash involving a bus you will need highly determined and compassionate attorneys to represent you and your family in the courtroom.
Buses are great for transporting large numbers of people. However, when these heavy vehicles are involved with crashes the results are catastrophic. Since buses do not have seatbelts, in the event of a violent crash it is possible for you to be tossed from your seat. Such powerful crashes can cause major injuries both internal and external. Also, there will be other people who are injured as well and you can guarantee they will have lawyers pursuing the maximum amount for their claim. Our attorneys will make sure your voice is heard and your grievances are not forgotten. First, we will have to determine what exactly caused the crash. We do this by:
- Reviewing Footage from Bus Camera
- Reviewing any Footage from Surrounding Cameras
- Attain Statements from Witnesses
- Work with Forensic Experts and Look for Malfunctioning Equipment
- Review Drivers History
These are just a few of the methods we will implore to gather all details of your accident. Since bus companies are run by state entities, they will conduct their own investigation and seek to minimize their payout. Our attorneys will do everything in their power to make sure this doesn’t happen. But we know from experience that the common causes of bus accidents are:
- Bus Driver Fatigue
- Bus Driver Negligence
- Bus Company Negligence
- Poor Maintenance
- Left Turns
- Another Driver
- Bad Weather
Each of these causes is not due to you as a passenger. We will show that either the bus company or their employee was negligent, or that someone else caused the accident. Our mission is to get you the compensation that you are entitled to. These injuries can have lasting effects on you and keep you from work for an extended amount of time. Not to mention the steep medical bills you will face. For parents whose children were involved in a bus accident, we offer our services as well. We will combat government entities and insurance conglomerates on your behalf while you focus on caring for your child. An accident at a young age will scar children for the rest of their lives, but children are resilient. Let us fight for you in court and give back a piece of what they took from you.
