Claims Can Be Complex in Bus Accidents
Turn to our lawyers experienced in handling bus accidents
There are an estimated three hundred fatal bus accidents annually according to a National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) study. This is partly due to year-to-year increases in the use of bus transportation, including school buses, charter buses, commuter and metro buses, and commercial common carriers such as Greyhound bus, Capitol Trailways, Peter Pan Bus Lines and others.
Older school buses and Greyhound buses with a lack of seat belts and other safety equipment may increase the risk of a bus-accident injury or death. Additionally, the sheer size and speed of buses involved in collisions can result in severe injuries for passengers, drivers and other victims.
If you've been the victim of a bus accident, the personal injury lawyers at SiebenCarey will aggressively pursue compensation for your bus accident injury.
Bus accidents come in many sizes, shapes and colors
Say the word "bus," and most people picture a yellow school bus from their childhood or the Greyhound bus they rode to summer camp. Downtown workers who want to avoid urban congestion may picture the local city bus used for their daily commute. And, of course, shuttle buses that make frequent stops are often used by airports, car rental firms and some public transportation services.
When any of these large, heavy bus-like vehicles are involved in collisions, they can wreak havoc on the road. People involved in these and other types of accidents that involve collision with a bus need help from an experienced bus accident attorney:
- Car accidents
- Bicycle accidents
- Motorcycle accidents
- Other accidents
The team of personal injury lawyers at SiebenCarey will ensure that the victims of bus accidents receive their due justice by pursuing all possible liable parties.
Medical help is the first priority for bus accident victims
Bus accident victims must seek medical attention and file timely claims to protect their legal rights. Injured bus accident victims may include passengers, pedestrians, drivers, or passengers and drivers of other vehicles involved in a bus collision. The size, weight and velocity of bus accidents may result in catastrophic injuries.
Contact a personal injury attorney as soon as possible after a bus accident to get help tracking medical expenses and preserving evidence. With the right documentation and the right representation you will get the compensation you deserve for your injuries.
You deserve compensation for your bus accident injury
Depending on the bus accident injury, a victim may have extensive health care costs for which they deserve compensation. A bus accident victim also may get compensation for lost wages, emotional distress, pain, suffering and other hardships. Experienced personal injury attorneys SiebenCarey will ensure that victims recover all that is due to them.
Minnesota law protects bus accident victims' rights
A victim may have a claim against the bus company. However, for public transportation systems, claims are usually made with a governmental entity. These claims are especially complex, have strict time limitations, and may vary greatly depending on the circumstances surrounding the bus accident.
If you have been seriously injured in an accident involving a commuter bus, school bus or Greyhound bus, you need the advice of an experienced bus accident lawyer.
