Filing a Claim After Your Accident
Injuries occur on all types of buses including city buses, private buses, and charter buses. In one case, a person chartered a bus for a party. The “party bus” took the bus riders to several bars throughout the LA area. The bus company permitted alcohol to be brought on board during the evening. One of the guests suffered a terrible injury during the ride. A substantial verdict was obtained based upon the negligence of the bus company in failing to supervise the party.
The most common causes of bus accidents include:
- Driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol
- Driving recklessly
- Poor weather conditions/visibility
- Defective bus equipment
- Improper bus maintenance
- Dangerous roadways
There are several things you should do after a bus accident. First, you should fill out an incident report before leaving the bus. If no incident report is provided, you should give the bus driver your name, address and telephone number and a brief description of your injuries at the scene. Second, you should file a report with the police if the police did not come to the scene. Third, you should take notes about the accident, including when, where and how the accident occurred. Obtain the names of witnesses. Fourth, you should seek immediate medical attention if injured. Finally, you should contact an attorney prior to speaking with the insurance company, which will be looking for an opportunity to minimize your case.
Because many buses do not have seat belts or safety restraints, victims can be thrown into the aisle, over a seat and even through a window suffering serious injuries.
Victims can sustain serious injuries such as:
- Spinal issues
- Broken bones
- Other major medical traumas
If you have been injured in a bus accident, do not hesitate to call MCIS Lawyers and schedule a free consultation right away.
