What Types of Bus Accident Cases Does Your Law Firm Handle?
Our law firm is proud to have personal injury lawyers who have extensive experience in handling a variety of bus crash claims that include the following types of common carriers in bus transportation:
- Charter bus
- MTA bus
- Tour bus
- School bus
- Greyhound bus
- Intercity buses

Due to the overall size and weight associated with any type of bus, riders, drivers, or pedestrians involved in the accident may suffer serious injuries. You need a bus accident lawyer who understands the complicated issues surrounding bus liability insurance. Depending on the case’s facts and circumstances, multiple parties may be held liable for the bus crash. You need a skilled attorney to evaluate your case and determine who should be held accountable for compensation for your injuries.
Can I File a Claim Against a Transit Bus Company?
While most public bus transportation is safe, several factors can cause a bus to be involved in an accident. For example, many city buses are involved in accidents because cyclists or pedestrians step out in front of them. This can cause the bus to swerve, lose control, and be involved in an accident.
If you are a city bus accident victim, you are legally entitled to file a lawsuit to recover any damages you may have incurred. However, many individuals often are overwhelmed by the thought of filing a claim against a local government entity or municipality. In addition, they are often fearful of dealing with the insurance company on their own. Our legal team has the skills and training needed to fight for a settlement in your best interests.
What Kind of Damages Can I Recover in a Bus Accident Claim?
If you have been injured in a bus accident, you may be entitled to recover both economic and non-economic damages. It is essential to understand that just because you were involved in a bus accident does not automatically entitle you to recover compensation. You must be able to successfully demonstrate that you suffered damages due to the accident.
Economic damages are meant to reimburse injury victims for the out-of-pocket expenses they have paid or will have to pay as a result of being injured. They can include:
- Past and future medical expenses, including hospital bills.
- Lost wages
- Loss of earning capacity
- Property damage
You may also be entitled to recover compensation if you still have ongoing expenses related to medical treatment such as rehabilitation, physical therapy, or prescription drugs. Even with health insurance, specialized tests and doctor visits can quickly add up and strain finances.
Non-economic damages are unlike economic damages that have a set monetary value. Instead, they are more subjective and based on the facts surrounding your case. They may include:
- Pain and suffering
- Loss of enjoyment of life
- Loss of companionship
- Permanent disfigurement or scarring
A well-trained bus accident attorney can evaluate your particular case and determine the appropriate damages. Contact Brent Adams & Associates to learn more about potential damages you could recover and how we can help you.
