Whenever you step onto a bus, whether a city bus, a tour bus, a shuttle, or a school bus, you are entrusting your safety to the bus driver and the owner of the bus. Unfortunately, there are close to 300 fatalities in crashes annually involving buses in the United States. Crashes involving buses have increased by 3.5 percent and bus injuries have grown 5.5 percent according to the Bureau of Transportation Statistics. In bus accidents, there are more victims, more responsible parties, and injuries can potentially be much more serious because of the lack of safety equipment like airbags and seat belts. For that reason, it is best to contact a qualified bus accident attorney to help you with your claim.
Investigation by Your Bus Accident Attorney
Bus accidents result from many different factors including the negligence of the driver, the negligence of maintenance, product defects, poor weather conditions or lack of required safety devices on board.
For example, earlier this summer, three men were injured when a truck and a bus collided at a Long Beach intersection. Bus accidents are not easily anticipated, and their results can be devastating for their victims.
Fair and Just Compensation
As you can see, a bus accident claim is likely to be very complex and while each case is different, a bus accident attorney can help you get financial support for:
- Pain and Suffering
- Cost of Medical Treatment (past and future)
- Loss of Wages
- Loss of Earning Capacity
- Life Care
