Typical Bus Accident Claims
There are a wide range of reasons a bus accident may occur, including:
- Bus driver error
- Improperly trained drivers
- Poor hiring practices
- Defective bus equipment
- Inadequate bus maintenance
Of course bus accidents may also be caused by bad weather or other things outside of the driver's control, but when someone else's negligence is the cause of the accident, you deserve maximum compensation for any injuries you suffer. In a bus accident claim, our experienced attorneys fight to recover compensation for your medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering, and for other things particular to your claim.
