How a Bus Accident Lawyer With Experience Can Help?

An experienced bus accident lawyer knows how to take on the bus companies and win. For example, Big Ben can find who's liable for your bus accident case. Whether you're on a city bus, a school bus, a private bus, or any other kind, Big Ben can sit down with you and go over your bus accident injury, letting you know exactly what you can expect.

During a free case evaluation, Big Ben will draw upon his experience as a bus crash lawyer and tell you what you can expect. Unfortunately, the insurance companies on the other side will not treat you properly, to say the very least. Instead, they'll do everything in their power to make sure that you receive as little as possible for your injuries. The very last thing they want you to do is to file a bus accident lawsuit.

Why a Bus Company Doesn't Want You To Get a Lawyer?

Because they know what your bus accident claims are worth. A bus company has, for the most part, been through many bus accidents in the past, to say the very least. As such, the bus company is going to hire a law firm (and draw upon their insurance claims adjusters) to make sure that you receive as little as possible. Big Ben, on the other hand, can do everything in his power to make sure that you recover compensation for everything that you've been through.

Compensation You Can Receive for Serious Injuries

What kinds of compensation can you receive? Well, compensation for medical care is one of the most important. Through this, if you've suffered catastrophic injuries, then you deserve fair compensation, at the very least. Lost wages are something else that you can recover compensation for, too. So, Big Ben can help you to recover compensation for any medical expenses that may arise from any personal injury you could have.

That means medical bills, rehab, therapy, and the like. By that same token, you can recover compensation for any non-economic damages you may have suffered as well. That could include pain, suffering, loss of consortium, and so much more.

What Bus Accident Victims Should Know?

If you were injured in a bus accident due to the negligence and/or recklessness of another party, then you very well may have a bus accident claim. So many, after they're injured in a bus accident, whether it's through school bus accidents or any other kind, think: "well, maybe I don't have a claim." So, they don't reach out to bus accident attorneys. The truth is that, for Big Ben, many of his clients who didn't believe that they had a case had a very strong one, and ended up winning big compensation from the bus companies responsible.

Who's Liable for My Bus Accidents?

This is one more area where it's important to work with experienced bus accident lawyers. When you work with Big Ben, he can find everyone who's liable for your accident. Yes, it very well could be the bus driver. Perhaps they were negligent, maybe they engaged in reckless driving, and so forth. Yes, your bus accident may be their fault. However, they might not be the only party who's responsible.

For example, Big Ben may be able to prove that the bus company is liable too, because they hired the bus driver in the first place. Maybe the bus driver was partially liable for your accident, but so too was whoever loaded up the bus, who was supposed to take care of the environmental factors, who drove another vehicle that crashed into the bus, and so forth.

Big Ben can prove negligence for any party responsible. Maybe another party engaged in aggressive driving that was far beyond the norm. Perhaps distracted driving was a problem of the bus driver, who crashed the bus into other vehicles. Engine failure could be the cause of the accident, which may make mechanics liable, those responsible for the bus, and so forth.

What Kind of Personal Injury Claim Could I Make for a Bus Accident?

Essentially, you can file a claim for any serious injuries you or someone you love may have suffered. Unfortunately, as these accidents can be serious, so too can the injuries. It's entirely possible to suffer a traumatic brain injury, "TBI," in the wake of a bus accident. The other side, simply put, will do everything they can to make sure that you receive little compensation, for medical treatment or anything else.

Injured victims should do everything in their power to reach out to law firms with a proven track record of dealing with these kinds of cases.

Can I File a Wrongful Death Lawsuit?

In the worst cases, for example, you may want to file for wrongful death. If someone that you love passed away in a bus accident, then the best course of action is to file a wrongful death suit. Obviously, no amount of compensation can make up for the loss of a loved one.

However, through a wrongful death lawsuit, you can receive payment for medical expenses due to your loved one's passing.

With that, you can have everything you need to be able to start again in the wake of a serious bus accident.

What Should I Do With My Insurance Provider After an Accident?

If you've suffered a serious injury, you have to contact your insurance provider and tell them what happened, yes. You need to tell those who provide your insurance coverage. However, the other insurance company is not your friend, to say the very least. They're the party standing in the way of you getting compensation for your hospital bills, they're the one saying that driver fatigue is not their driver's fault, and so forth.

Simply put, they are the one trying to keep you from receiving what you should for your injury claim.

Bus Accident Lawyers Who Know By Your Side

Serious bus accidents are exactly that: serious. Should you or someone you love suffer one, your best bet is to go to a personal injury law firm who's done this before. Big Ben and his team has taken on many a bus manufacturer, (among other parties), so as to do right by his clients.

Over the years, he and his team have been able to help so many victims of bus crashes who were in the exact same position that you are right now. You just got on a bus. You were a bus passenger, and now you're dealing with having to reach out for a free consultation to an accident lawyer. We understand how jarring this can be.

So, we know how to help you through the process. From the moment you contact us, we'll get right to work doing everything in our power to prove liability for everything that you've had to go through. That means we can help you to get everything that you deserve for having been in a bus accident.

A Bus Accident Lawyer for Any Kind of Bus

Regardless of the kind of bus that was involved in your bus accidents, we can help you to recover the compensation that you deserve. For example, if you or your child was injured in accidents involving school buses, we may be able to help. When you put your child on a school bus, you expect them to be OK throughout the day. Should the school bus be involved in an accident, then you and your child may deserve to be compensated for that.

A charter bus company can be sued, should you be injured through the negligence and/or recklessness of another party. This is also true if you're riding with a private bus company (such as those that manage Greyhound buses) but also with city buses, too. Whether it's a private bus company or the government, we can help.

Bus companies are going to have their own lawyers. They will not wait around after bus accidents to get started. If you've been injured in an accident with buses (motor coaches or something similar as well) Big Ben and the team encourage you to immediately contact us.

Bus Accident Causes

Over the years, our team of bus accident lawyers have handled just about every single kind of case. The truth is that these accidents can occur due to many different causes. Yes, the most common is some form of negligence on the part of bus drivers. Perhaps they were going over the speed limit, under the influence, and so forth.

However, bus driver fatigue is rarely the only reason for an accident. For example, our team of bus accident attorneys have handled many cases where the liable party was one that didn't properly maintain a bus. If a bus crash is due to some manufacturing or design defect in the design of the bus (or its maintenance), then someone is liable for your accident that was not behind the wheel.

It could also be that your bus accident was caused by environmental causes: something was wrong with the road, other conditions, other vehicles, etc.

No matter who is liable for your accident, a Big Ben bus accident attorney will conduct a thorough evaluation to find out exactly who is responsible. Then, we'll do everything in our power to make sure that you receive the compensation you should deserve.

How Do You Pay for a Bus Accident Lawyer?

A bus accident lawyer from Big Ben's firm works on contingency. That means that you don't have to pay for a bus accident attorney from our firm out of your own pocket. Instead, your payment will come out of your eventual settlement. In fact, you don't have to pay unless our bus accident attorneys win.

We have a proven track record of winning bus accident cases and can now put that experience to work for you.

You didn't ask to be in an accident. You were merely one of many bus passengers when something horrible happened. As such, we don't believe that you should have to pay out of your own checking account for personal injury lawyers. Unlike the insurance company, we're on your side.

Instead of trying to keep you from receiving all of the compensation that you deserve, we do everything in our power to make sure that you receive everything that you should.

Types of Buses in a Bus Accident Case

Many erroneously believe that you can only bring a bus accident lawsuit if you suffered your injuries on charter buses or something else that is privately owned. However, that's not the case. Big Ben and the team here have handled a bus accident case for just about every single kind of bus there is.

For example, we've handled many school bus cases. If your kids or even you were hurt in an accident involving school buses, (whether it was one of a chain reaction accident, where heavier buses collide with your vehicle) or something similar, we can help there as well.

Many accidents involve a school bus, whether it's crashed into, crashes into someone else, or something similar.

School bus accidents can be devastating, yes, but we can help you to get the fair compensation you and your family deserve for everything you've been through. If you've suffered a bus accident injury in that way, we may be able to help.

If you're hurt in motorcoach accidents involving one of these vehicles striking you (or if you're a passenger on public buses), so long as your accident is caused by the negligence and/or recklessness of someone else, we can help.

Injury Lawyers With a History of Winning Cases 

Big Ben and his team of attorneys have helped clients to receive the accident settlements that they deserve. A strong majority of the time, these cases are settled in negotiation. Every injury lawyer on Big Ben’s staff has the kind of reputation that the other side knows they’re better off dealing with in negotiation. They do not want to take an injury lawyer from our team to court. 

Each of our bus injury lawyers are happy to be able to represent our clients in court, should that come to pass. We understand how challenging this time can be for someone recovering from an accident. That’s just one reason that we do everything in our power to make sure that you receive everything you should. 

Bus Accident Attorneys Who Know Bus Accident Law

Some people have the idea that they don’t need an accident attorney, that they should handle their case all on their own, etc. This is a bad idea for multiple reasons. Not the least of those: you’re recovering from an accident. The other side will have an accident lawyer (or lawyers) with years of experience. You do not want to have to go up against them armed only with what you’ve been able to find out about liability law online. 

Helping Bus Accident Victims Every Step of the Way

From the free case evaluation through a successful outcome, a bus accident attorney from Big Ben's firm can be there for you every step of the way.

For example, once you come to us, we'll conduct a thorough investigation to discover exactly what happened. That means we'll look at all of the parties, determine who's liable (whether it's bus drivers or someone else) and then put together the best case on your behalf.

This, of course, means that you can recover compensation for medical care, non-economic compensation, and more.

We'll negotiate ferociously on your behalf, never settling for less than your case is worth. The other side knows that it's in their best interest to settle with us. If they don't, we're happy to take them to trial.

Medical Care on Contingency, Too

After you or someone you love are in bus accidents, we can help in multiple ways. For example, we have a team of medical pros we work with who also work on contingency.

That means you won't have to pay them out of pocket for treatment, but rather, out of the eventual settlement for your bus accidents. We see it as one more way to help the victims of bus accidents.

Damages Your Attorney Will Work to Get You 

A bus crash attorney from our firm will work with you to make sure that you receive all of the compensation you deserve. This is true whether you’re in California, New York, or anywhere else. Clients can recover economic as well as non-economic compensation. 

Economic compensation covers medical bills, for your therapy, rehab, medications, and so forth. 

Additionally, you can recover lost wages, money that you would have made had you continued to work and so forth. 

Non-economic compensation, on the other hand, is for that which can’t be so easily quantified: your pain, your suffering, all that you go through. 

In the unfortunate event that someone you love suffers a fatal bus accident, then we can help there as well. We can file a “wrongful death” suit against the liable parties. While no amount of compensation can make up for the loss of a loved one, a wrongful death case can provide you with compensation to pay for any medical bills that may have accrued from your loved one’s accident, funeral costs, and more. 

With this compensation, you’ll have a foundation from which to start the rest of your life. 

What to Do After an Accident and Before Calling a Law Firm?

To the extent you're able, remove yourself from harm's way. Then, assess your personal injury as well as those around you. Collect evidence to the extent that you're able to safely.

That means take pictures, yes, but also talk to witnesses as well. This will prove invaluable to your eventual personal injury case.

Call 911. Do this even if it seems like no one is hurt, no one is to blame, no crime was committed, etc. If nothing else, the police will produce a report. This report can be a great help for building your case. 

Contact your insurance company and tell them about your personal injury. Don't embellish. Make sure that you get medical attention, too, even if it seems like your personal injury isn't severe or even that you suffered an injury at all.

All too often, someone suffered a severe personal injury and didn't realize it until they talked to a doctor. The last thing you want is to go back to your life, seemingly feeling fine, only to discover that you suffered a horrible injury.

Best Bus Accident Lawyer to Help

When a bus company calls, they're doing so in hopes that you'll take less than you deserve. They don't want you to get money for your bus accidents. Indeed, that's what their business model depends on. That's not how it works at our law firm.

Here, we only get paid when you do. Thus, we do everything in our power to make sure that you receive everything you should. We are on the same team as you, with the same goals. The same can't be said of your insurance.

By doing this, we can be by your side throughout the entire process, come what may. It's just one more way that we can help our clients.
