Bus Accident Lawyer

indiana bus accident lawyers

Bus accidents are often caused by road hazards like potholes, poor road surfaces, lousy weather, and traffic congestion. They may also be caused by mechanical failures, driver error, or distracted driving.

Types Of Bus Accidents

  • The most common types of bus accidents include:
  • Bus-pedestrian collisions
  • Bus-vehicle collisions
  • Passenger injuries from falling on the floor
  • Driver injuries

Statute Of Limitations May Apply

The statute of limitations may apply to any claims against the bus company, but this varies from state to state. In some states, it is three years; in others, it is five years.

When a Bus Accident Causes a Wrongful Death

The law recognizes that people who are injured by the negligence of others should not suffer from financial hardship due to medical bills. In some cases, victims may be entitled to compensation for wrongful death. This compensation can include money for funeral expenses, lost wages, pain and suffering, emotional distress, and other losses caused by the injury or death.

How Much Will Hiring a Bus Accident Attorney Cost?

The cost of hiring a lawyer will depend on several factors, including the type of case you have, where it was filed, and whether or not the insurance company has hired a lawyer to defend them. Some issues may require expert testimony from medical experts, which could add to the overall cost.

Bus Accidents Can Cause Extremely Serious Injuries

The bus industry has made great strides in safety over the past few years, but it still isn’t perfect. For example, many buses don’t have seatbelts, which means they could cause severe injuries if someone were ejected from their seat during a crash. Other common causes of bus accidents include drunk driving, distracted driving, speeding, and running red lights.
