Bus accidents are rare. Unfortunately, when they occur, serious injury and death often result.
We are one of the few law firms in the country with experience in bus accident death and injury cases.
Bus accidents may involve not only the transportation of children to and from school and not only bus companies such as Greyhound, but also the transportation of people on shuttle buses at airports, to and from casinos, church, senior citizen and special event transportation and even the transportation of persons to and from medical appointments.
Bus accidents are caused by:
Defects in equipment
Sometimes people are injured not only as a result of the collision in which a bus is involved, but because the bus itself is defective and dangerous. Unfortunately, many buses on the road today are not required to meet federal safety guidelines. As a bus passenger, you or your loved one may be the victim of a defective product – the bus itself!
You should know that for a bus accident, immediately after an accident, insurance companies send out investigators, accident reconstruction experts and other professionals to start to defend the case you will bring against the bus company and/or the bus driver. By the time you get out of the hospital or bury your loved one, the insurance company has already spent considerable time and money preparing its case. The sooner you have your claim evaluated to determine whether you have a case, the sooner you can get to work on building your lawsuit against whomever is responsible for your injury or the death of your loved one.
Let us put our fifty-plus years of experience to work for you. If you have been injured or someone you love has been killed in a bus collision, contact us for a consultation at (505) 242 - 6300 or e-mail us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Consultations with our law firm are free and we take cases on a contingency fee basis. This means that we collect an attorney fee only if you recover a settlement or judgment in your lawsuit.
