Compensation for Bus Accident Victims

Bus accidents can occur in various situations and affect a variety of people, including:

Bus Riders

In the event of a bus accident, bus riders are particularly prone to injury. Most buses don’t have seatbelts, and often have many passengers on board. They may suffer injuries due to broken glass, colliding with one another, impacting seats or bus walls, and shifting luggage.

Drivers and Passengers of Other Vehicles

Due to their size, weight, and limited maneuverability, bus collisions can cause serious injuries for the drivers and passengers of other vehicles involved. We have represented clients who have suffered serious injuries in bus accidents involving:

  • Bus driver negligence
  • Rollovers
  • Collisions with vehicles in bus blind spots
  • Distracted driving
  • Drunk driving
  • Failure to yield the right of way
  • Running red lights and stop signs
  • Inadequate driver training or licensure
  • Mechanical malfunctions
  • Tailgating
  • Hazardous weather conditions

Pedestrians and Bicycle Riders

All drivers are required to yield to pedestrians and cyclists. However, some drivers aren’t accustomed to looking for pedestrians or cyclists, and it doesn’t help that they’re often hard to see. Because they don’t have the extra protection of a vehicle, bikers and pedestrians are especially vulnerable and may suffer severe and even fatal injuries when involved in bus accidents.

What to Do if You’ve Been Injured in a Bus Accident

The first thing you should do after a bus accident is seek medical attention, no matter how insignificant your injuries seem. Many accident victims suffer serious injuries that aren’t visible or immediately obvious, so it’s important to see a doctor as soon as possible to rule out any internal injuries.

Once you’ve seen a doctor, you should preserve and collect evidence relating to the accident. This may include taking photos of the accident, gathering your medical records, and getting insurance and contact information from others involved in the accident. You can also take notes on anything you remember from the accident to help refresh your memory later.
