Was your driver fatigued, distracted, or under the influence? We’ll get to the bottom of it.
Bus accidents are more common than you may think.
It is estimated that over 60,000 buses are involved in some type of accident every year, often resulting in serious injuries or even death. The complexity of these accidents goes beyond typical collisions as they may involve:
- Drivers on the road
- Manufacturers of bus and bus equipment
- Bus companies
- Local or state governments (if transport is public)
The most common factors in bus accidents are usually a result of:
- Reckless driving
- Driving under the influence
- Dangerous driving conditions
- Dangerous roads
- Defective equipment
- Inexperienced drivers
- Improper maintenance
- Drivers approaching an age
You’ll want proper representation in such complex cases as seeking the maximum financial recovery will help you in covering:
- Current and future medical bills
- Property damage
- Pain and suffering
- Wages lost because of your injuries
It is in an insurance company’s best interest to aggressively to protect their profits, and receiving low settlements is an unfortunate consequence for many injured victims who simply didn’t get their case represented adequately.
Getting comprehensive representation takes a combination of legal expertise but also forensic investigation tactics, which includes the retrieval of:
- Evidence pertaining to other parties
- Bus driver log books
- Witness testimony
- Bus log box data
