For commuters of all ages, buses offer a convenient way to get to and from work, school, and other activities. Unfortunately, bus accidents occur all too frequently and can result in serious injury or death for the riders involved. Since bus accidents usually involve many individuals fighting a legal battle with a company, victims frequently receive inadequate compensation. Hiring a legal representative can ensure you receive adequate retribution for your personal injury or loved one’s death.
In 2017, there were 539 bus accidents in Virginia. Fortunately, only two of these resulted in death, but there were 215 bus occupants injured in the crashes. Bus accidents can cause serious injuries that cost thousands of dollars in medical bills. In addition to this financial burden, many victims of bus accidents face serious emotional and physical damage that can lead to permanent disability.
If you are the victim of a bus accident, you deserve to receive financial support for damages. The lawyers at MichieHamlett law firm of Charlottesville, VA can help you achieve these results. Our lawyers tackle all types of personal injury cases with motor vehicles including cars, motorcycles, and tractor trailer accidents.
Bus accident litigation can be complicated, because there are different laws governing public and private buses. To navigate the nuances of vehicle law related to buses, it is often recommended that bus accident victims hire a skilled legal attorney to protect their rights and fight for their interests. The lawyers at MichieHamlett law firm of Charlottesville, VA have experience with bus accident cases and are trained in laws related to common carriers and other vehicle safety issues relevant to buses.
For accidents involving public buses, there are special requirements regarding filing deadlines; failure to act quickly and correctly immediately after being involved in a bus accident can prevent you from having a legal case to build on. Commercial buses like Greyhound or Trailways have a different set of rules governing bus related accidents.
School bus accidents are, yet again, a different type of legal case. An average of 17,000 schoolchildren are injured each year in school bus crashes, but navigating legal options can be difficult.
