Skilled Legal Support For Bus Accident Victims
Due to the large size of a bus, its powerful force may cause enormous damage in a crash. Other drivers, passengers or pedestrians could sustain life-changing injuries from the impact. In some cases, the bus driver might also suffer injury as a consequence of another driver’s error or through their employer’s negligence.
If you were hurt in a bus accident, it is important for you to know which steps to take as well as your legal rights. The personal injury attorneys of Salim-Beasley, LLC can walk you through the process of seeking the compensation you need.
The Unique Qualities Of A Bus Collision
There are many differences between average car crashes and bus accidents. For example, in a motor vehicle accident, the drivers fill out the police report, show their license and insurance and are usually on their way. In a bus accident, things work differently.
Not only can the driver be found at fault, but the company might also be found to share responsibility. Our attorneys can gather information like the driver’s employment history and qualifications. The driver may be required to undergo a drug and alcohol test. A diligent attorney would also thoroughly examine all of the vehicles involved to check for possible defective parts or poor maintenance.
Many types of injuries can occur when in a bus accident. Simple injuries such as minor whiplash or a minor abrasion can happen. More serious events can occur like head trauma, spinal injury, severed limbs or cardiac arrest. In many cases, victims have several of these injuries together. Deaths also occur in serious bus accidents.
