The term “bus accident” can encompass a number of very distinct scenarios, including:
- An injury to a passenger who is boarding or getting off a bus.
- An injury to a pedestrian, bicyclist or motorcyclist involved in a collision with a bus.
A bus accident case may require very different legal maneuvers depending on the type of bus:
- City bus
- Long distance, interstate bus such as Greyhound
- Casino bus
- Chartered bus for school or church trips
- Rental car company shuttle
- Airport shuttle
- School bus
- Party bus
Sorting Out Liability After A Bus Accident Is A Job For An Experienced Attorney
Whatever type of bus is involved, and whatever the injuries are, there are several points to keep in mind about bus accidents. First, it often takes an experienced personal injury lawyer to identify responsible parties. Bus companies, dispatchers, drivers, trainers of drivers, mechanics and parts manufacturers are all examples of potentially liable parties. A detailed investigation is key. Police reports can be helpful, but do not tell the whole story, by any means. Secondly, when several people are injured at once in a bus accident (such as several passengers at once), each one has his or her own claim or lawsuit to file. The value of your case will depend on many factors unique to your situation: namely, your particular injuries, your income and your specific losses.
Beware insurance claims adjusters who may rush to your side with clipboards, urging you to sign waivers in exchange for a quick settlement. Seemingly minor neck or back injuries sometimes give way to serious, chronic conditions. Ryan Montgomery, Attorney at Law, LLC, reminds you to discuss your case with an experienced lawyer before answering questions of investigators or signing settlement agreements. Doing such things before you have legal counsel can ruin your case before it gets off the ground.
