Bus travel is a prominent means of transportation, with Americans relying on almost 900,000 buses each year. However, tragedy will occasionally strike, affecting everyone from passengers to pedestrians. A bus accident can be a dangerous and traumatic event.

As reflected by recent data, bus-related crashes are a frequent occurrence on U.S. roads. If you’ve been a passenger injured by a bus crash, or if you’ve been struck while traveling on foot or bicycle, we understand your struggle. Treatment is expensive, work won’t wait, and your family may still need your support.

Allen & Allen understands that your life has been forever changed, and we are fully committed to helping relieve your burden.

Bus accident case results from Richmond attorneys

What should I do in the event of a bus accident?

Under Virginia law, you may have the right to recover monetary damages if you have been injured in a bus-related accident. Damages may include reimbursement or compensation for:

  • Medical costs
  • Lost wages
  • Pain and suffering
  • Future medical expenses

Protect yourself by contacting an attorney at Allen & Allen to discuss your situation before you speak with the insurance companies. Our experienced attorneys can help you to determine:

  • If you have the right to collect from the negligent operator’s insurance company
  • If you are eligible to collect medical payments coverage from your own insurance company
  • If we can help you obtain a fair settlement offer for damages through negotiation
  • What evidence needs to be presented in order to collect financial compensation

Many insurance companies representing public transit systems, school systems, or private charter companies will contact you as early as the day after a crash. They wish to obtain a recorded statement about your injuries and your accident. These representatives have extensive resources at their disposal and will use them to seek any reason to deny your claim.

A recorded statement is not in your best interest when the full extent of your injuries and your financial burden has yet to be determined. You are under no legal obligation to provide such a statement, and if you do, it could be used against you during the settlement process. Instead, you should seek the help of attorneys like those at Allen & Allen. They have the necessary experience and confidence when it comes to protecting clients injured in bus accidents.
