 Bus accidents

There’s no getting away from it- buses are huge and heavy. With the potential to carry a lot of passengers, some of whom would have been standing up. Operating a bus carries high stakes, and bus companies are subject to a broad field of federal and state regulations that ensure they are operating safely. Due to their very nature of transporting a lot of people- often without seatbelts and depending on the journey they take, offering the opportunity to stand. As you can therefore imagine, when an accident does happen, it can have a catastrophic impact on every person choosing to ride as well as the other vehicles involved.

As an individual passenger, you have a right to file your own accident case against the bus company which is important to know as many people assume there will only need to be one legal case filed for the same accident. This isn’t true and it’s important to hire a legal professional to represent your own experience in the accident, whether you were on the bus or another vehicle.

What is bus accident litigation and what does it mean for your case

When bus accidents happen, litigation can be lengthy and complicated due to a number of factors such as the number of individuals involved and their own personal injuries as well as involving the bus driver’s employer. There are also added complications to consider such as maintenance on the bus and other factors that could have impacted the bus accident such as traffic and the time of day. All of these things will be carefully considered by your accident attorney who will help represent you as an individual after this horrendous accident. 

Our team of experienced lawyers is very familiar with the litigation law in Arizona and can help steer you through the rather stressful and often emotional legal journey that comes after an incident such as a bus accident.
