What to Do After You’ve been Involved in a Bus Accident
Most people travel by bus because it’s less expensive than flying and they assume that it’s just as safe. The truth, however, is that commercial bus and truck drivers are up to 7 times more likely to be involved in fatigue related crashes.
And, as our Bus Accident Lawyers have seen too often, a bus that loses control at highway speeds can have tragic and often fatal consequences for the passengers onboard.
Some of the common injuries sustained in bus accidents include:
- Brain injuries or head trauma
- Spinal cord injures
- Crushing Injuries
- Nerve damage
- Broken bones
- Muscles sprains
- Internal Injuries
- Burns or Lacerations
Committed to Helping our Clients Obtain the Best Medical Treatment Available
Passengers who have been involved in bus crashes, particularly those that occur on the highway at night, often sustain serious—and sometimes fatal—injuries. Recovering from these injuries can take years and require extensive medical treatment.
Unfortunately, once the bus crashes, most passengers find themselves struggling to obtain medical treatment, as the bus companies will almost always refuse to take any responsibility for the crash until they’re forced to do so in a lawsuit.
That’s why we help our clients access the best medical providers possible and we work with their employers to make sure that they get the time off work that they need to recover.
The recovery process may include:
- Long Hospitalization
- Physical Therapy
- On-going Care
- Permanent Disability
- Lifetime Medications and Treatments
The expense for these treatments can quickly rise into the millions of dollars. The Bus Accident Attorneys at Zehl & Associates know what methods the bus companies will use to avoid liability, and we know how to gain fair compensation for our clients.
Don’t Leave your Future in the Hands of the Bus Company and their Insurance Adjusters
If you or a loved one were injured in a bus accident, you’re entitled to be compensated for all your injuries and damages. In order to protect yourself and your future, however, you need to talk to a law firm who has the resources, experience and ability to take on the bus company and the insurance carriers.
Greyhound and other large bus companies have teams of lawyers and insurance adjusters who are focused on one thing and one thing only: doing whatever possible to limit the amount of damages you’re able to recover for your injuries.
Don’t place your future in their hands.
