San Jose Bus Accident Attorney
Injured in a Bus Accident? Call 408.298.1500
When you get on a bus, whether to tour a city, get to school, or commute to work, you place your trust in the driver and the mechanics of that vehicle. Any collisions or accidents are strictly not your fault, so you should not be expected to pay for any consequences of the incident. In many cases, however, bus accident victims wind up needing to pay for their own recoveries because they did not take the legal steps to hold the bus driver or their parent company responsible.
If you have suffered serious injuries from a bus accident of any type, we understand that you may be worried about your future stability due to high bills and missed work. Our San Jose personal injury lawyer can help you pursue just compensation for the incident that does not leave you in financial peril.
We offer free case evaluations – just call 408.298.1500
Experienced Legal Guidance By Your Side
After a bus accident, you should remain at the scene if safe and if possible. Your goal should be to document as much information as you can to use for your own case later on. If you can take pictures of the collision and obtain insurance information of all parties, this action could aid in the claims process.
By working with our team, we can fight for compensation on your behalf that will help you pay for:
- Medical bills
- Rehabilitation programs
- Lost wages
- Lost earning potential
- Emotional trauma
Proving Who is to Blame
Even though you were just a passenger, you might have to take steps to prove who was to blame for the bus accident that injured you. Otherwise, a lengthy legal battle could follow that ultimately cannot decide who is liable. Thus, the costs of recovery would fall upon the individuals or, at the very least, you would only be granted a minimal recovery.
Questions to consider when filing your claim:
- Was the bus driver distracted?
- Was the bus driver intoxicated?
- Was the bus driver speeding?
- Was there a defective part?
- Was someone else on the bus posing an immediate threat?
- What were the weather conditions?
