Bus, Tour & Travel Accidents

When a bus accident happens, serious injuries to passengers are usually the result.  Most buses do not have seat belts or other safety features found in modern vehicles. So when a bus rollover or bus crash occurs, passengers can suffer catastrophic injuries from being thrown around or ejected from the bus.

A bus is also much larger and heavier than other vehicles on the road, so if a bus hits a car, a motorcycle, a bicycle or a pedestrian, the results are usually severe injury or death. Settlements or awards in bus accident cases are typically large — six or seven figures —  which is why insurance companies will usually contest them vigorously.  And why you need experienced legal representation to fight for your right to be fairly compensated for any injury suffered in a bus accident, whether it’s a public bus, a private bus line, a tour bus, or a school bus.

Bus, Tour & Travel Accidents Damages: What Is Your Case Worth?

A bus accident claim typically involves serious injuries that result in major medical expenses and other losses, including:

  • Lost wages and income
  • Loss from disability (future lost income)
  • Rehabilitation and physical therapy
  • Long-term care
  • Specialized medical equipment
  • Pain and suffering
  • Loss of quality of life
  • Disfigurement, deformity and permanency of injury

If you were injured on a public bus operated by city or state agencies, there are special laws that apply — including specific time limits on how long bus accident victims have to file a claim.  People injured in public bus accidents should not delay in contacting an attorney experienced in bus accident claims to avoid missing the opportunity to recover compensation for your injuries.
