Did A Bus Accident Cause Your Injuries?

For many people living in Boston and Massachusetts, public or mass transportation is a part of everyday life. Unfortunately, when a bus accident occurs, there are often numerous serious injuries and numerous victims involved.

Buses are huge vehicles that can carry many people. Bus accidents occur thousands of times each year and cause passengers within the bus as well as passengers of other vehicle unneeded pain and suffering, or even death.

If you or a loved one has been involved in a bus accident, it is important that you contact an experienced bus accident lawyer from Wood & Gresham, P.C., as soon as possible. Often times, local, city, or regional governments control public buses, making the bus driver responsible for the accident a government employee.

If the bus company responsible for the bus you have been injured by is a government entity, it affects the way your claim must be handled. Not only will you be required to provide a notice to the government with information about the accident, but also the amount of damages you are able to recover may be limited.

Bus companies rigorously defend their drivers when faced with a bus accident lawsuit. Because of this, it is important to follow a few key guidelines if you are involved in a bus accident:

  • Obtain medical attention — You must make sure that you can prove the bus accident you have been involved in has caused you injuries.
  • Contact the authorities — Police officers who arrive at the scene of the accident will evaluate the circumstances and determine who they believe is at fault for the accident.
  • Obtain contact information — Not only is it important to obtain the contact information of the driver, but also get as much information about his or her driving history or training as possible. Also get the contact information of any other passengers or witnesses.
  • Contact an attorney — An experienced bus accident attorney will help you file all the required notices, and assist you through every step of the bus accident lawsuit process. He or she will work with insurance companies and investigate every aspect of the bus accident to help you recover from the injuries you have suffered.
