Do You Sue the City After a Bus Accident?
A bus accident claim can get really complicated really fast depending on what type of bus hit you. If you were hit by a private or charter bus, then you will have to file a claim against the bus company. This process will involve their insurance company, too, so you should be ready for some resistance.
On the other hand, if you were hit by a city bus, then your case will probably be more difficult. Suing a government entity is rarely straightforward. The city bus company is likely under the management or supervision of a county board of transportation. When suing a government entity or municipal agency, there is a reduced statute of limitations, sometimes as little as 90 days from the date of the accident.
If you were hit by a city bus, then please call (888) 492-5532 before the reduced statute of limitations expires.
Can You Sue If Your Bus Had No Seatbelt?
Buses are designed to not have seatbelts for all passengers, which seems like an inherent safety issue. However, private and public buses are not required to offer their passengers seatbelts. If you were hurt in a bus accident while riding as a bus passenger, and you were not strapped in with a seatbelt, it might not change the outcome of your case by that much, but it is worth mentioning to our attorneys. The more details we have about the bus and the accident, the better.
Bus Accident Injuries
Bus accidents often end in severe injuries due to the immense size and weight of the bus. People who are hit by buses can suffer life-changing injuries in an instant. If this happened to you, then you should fight for every penny of compensation owed to you by the defendant.
Severe injuries often reported in bus accident cases include:
- Brain injuries
- Spine injuries
- Back injuries
- Broken bones
When we work on a bus accident case, we care about the outcome as if we are representing ourselves. That is why we carefully calculate all damages – medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering, disability, and more – to account for not just the severity of the injuries but also their permanence.
