In an Accident with a Bus? What You Should Do Next
- August 3rd, 2018
Every year, there are thousands of traffic accidents involving buses taking place on our nation’s roads. While the vast majority of these collisions are minor and only involve limited material damage, some of them are a lot more serious. As buses are a lot bigger and heavier than other vehicles, they can cause extensive damages in an accident. Fairfield personal injury attorneys at Faloni Law Group have seen cases of motorists being seriously injured in accidents involving public transit, school, or long-distance buses. We understand how difficult such cases can be and are here to help you receive the compensation you deserve.
What to Do If You Were Involved in an Accident with a Bus
The most important thing to do is to keep all of the documents related to the accident, such as police reports, witness statements, medical bills and invoices for repairs to your car. This is especially important if you were seriously injured and have extensive medical bills or have had to take time off work as a result of the accident.
After you’ve put together all of the documents related to the accident, you should quickly contact an experienced attorney specializing in bus accidents. An attorney can help you see whether you are able to get compensation for your injuries and how much you can expect to receive.
Getting Compensation for Your Injuries
If you were in an accident where the bus was at fault, you may be able to get compensation for your injuries. Many bus accidents are caused by drivers that are tired or distracted, as well as by buses that are poorly maintained. Fairfield personal injury attorneys can do a thorough evaluation of your case to determine who was really at fault for the accident.
Cases involving bus accidents are often quite complex, which is why it’s highly recommended that you hire an attorney instead of handling things on your own. Faloni Law Group has represented clients injured in traffic accidents for several decades. We can help you by evaluating your case, giving you valuable legal advice, and helping you obtain the compensation that you’re eligible for. Contact our office today to schedule a consultation.
