Bus Accidents - Personal Injury Law

It is crucial for the public to be aware of the rights that they have as a rider. A bus accident can cause serious injuries on the riders which will not only affect the victim but also their families. Medical expenses can be a significant drain on the family, especially if the victim has been permanently injured where long-term medical attention is necessary.

Persons injured in a bus accident are entitled to recover special and general damages from the person or persons responsible for the injury. These damages can include but are not limited to medical expenses, loss of wages, loss of quality of life, and pain and suffering.

It is important to remember that in the case of negligent bus driver, the bus driver's conduct will be evaluated in light of a higher standard of care: That of a "common carrier." Knowing to apply this standard (or the failure to assert it) may have a drastic impact on the outcome of a case.

If you are involved in a bus accident and are injured it is important that you contact an attorney as soon as possible to get the help you need.
