What should I do if I’m injured in a bus crash?
We often have clients that were involved in bus incidents or bus crashes here in the state of California. A question that they have is, “We’re a little familiar with the auto crash context, but how is a bus injury different?” A bus crash is different being involved in a collision with another vehicle. The main thing that distinguishes the difference is that a bus is more often than not a governmental entity, meaning you’ll have a shortened period of time in which you can file a claim and then file the corresponding lawsuit; the claim and the lawsuit are two different things.
Another important aspect of bus injury claims is that there is often video, and it’s video depicting the incident. It’s important to retain an experienced personal injury attorney, in large part, because that attorney will, at the outset of the case, do whatever they can to make sure that the evidence is preserved. It is the preservation of that video and the broader preservation of evidence, as it pertains to the bus incident case, that is one of the most important parts of the claim.
