Over $2 Million Settlement for Bus Accident Victim

We are honored to announce a $2.25 million settlement for the victim of a bus accident. Our client was riding in a municipal bus when it was suddenly struck by a cement truck. The bus was at a standstill prior to the collision. Multiple people were injured as a result of the impact, including our client. The settlement was reached as the trial neared its completion, and was worth twice what the insurance companies (primary and excess) had offered before trial.

What Causes Bus Accidents?

Bus accidents can be caused by a number of factors. Depending on the circumstances, it may be the operator of the bus that is at fault or another party, like the driver of a truck. In some cases, multiple parties can be held responsible for the accident.

Common causes of bus accidents:

  • Fatigue
  • Inattention
  • Unsafe speed
  • Impairment
  • Inexperience
  • Faulty equipment
  • Careless driving

If you are involved in a collision with a bus or as a passenger on a bus, you might be entitled to compensation. It is in your best interest to consult with a bus accident lawyer. A lawyer can help determine your legal options for obtaining damages.

Types of Bus Accident Injuries

Bus accident injuries can range in severity. In many instances, the harm is severe, resulting in life-threatening or fatal injuries.

Types of bus injuries:

  • Broken bones
  • Facial lacerations
  • Head and neck injuries
  • Concussions and post-concussion syndrome
  • Brain injuries

In the days and weeks after a bus crash, you may be unsure of the extent of your injuries. Even if you are not sure whether you are severely injured, you still need to seek medical attention immediately.

Why You Need an Attorney

Early settlement offers rarely reflect the true value of your case. An insurance company or a negligent party may try to get you to settle for less than your case is worth. They may try to downplay your injuries or put you at fault for the accident. An attorney can help ensure that you receive the maximum compensation you deserve.
