  • The bus company
  • Insurance companies
  • Legal teams from all sides

Your attorney will not be intimidated by anyone in these cases and will not be bullied into taking a low settlement. Your attorney will work to prove that your injuries were caused by another person’s negligence and handle all negotiations for a fair settlement. An attorney will have the resources to perform a full investigation of your case, secure medical experts, and even reconstruct the accident if necessary.

Bus Crashes Often Lead To Serious Injuries

The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration tells us that both school buses and inter-city buses are regularly involved in crashes. These incidents can lead to serious injuries for bus passengers, those in vehicles struck by a bus, as well as pedestrians around the crash.

Buses are large vehicles and can cause serious injuries if they crash. It is vital that all bus drivers are properly trained to operate these vehicles. Under no circumstances should a bus driver be impaired or distracted when operating the vehicle. Bus companies have a duty to regularly inspect and maintain their vehicles to prevent vehicle failures.

When a bus crash occurs, it is not uncommon to see the following:

  • Broken and dislocated bones
  • Severe lacerations
  • Internal organ damage
  • Internal bleeding
  • Spinal cord injuries
  • Traumatic brain injuries

Our team serves bus accident victims in Lakewood, Toms River, Brick, Jackson, Manchester, Berkeley, Lacey Township, and Stafford Township.
