Getting Bus Accident Compensation | Determining Liability
The way you get compensation for your case is through the insurance company of the liable party. By “liable party” I mean the person or company who caused the collision. Bus wrecks are unique in the sense that there may not be an obvious party right away. There are a few possible people who are going to be the liable party. There might be a driver of a car or motor vehicle other than the bus driver who caused the wreck. It is very likely that the bus driver is the one who caused the collision. The causes of these crashes are similar to other motor vehicle collisions including distracted driving, drowsy driving, speeding, driver error, etc.
Sometimes collisions are not necessarily two vehicles crashing. There are some collisions that have to do with the bus itself. If you are injured on the bus, getting on or off the bus, you may have an injury claim. You are going to need an attorney to help you figure out all of the liable parties as there may be more than one.
Getting Bus Accident Compensation | Filing a Claim
The basic steps to filing a bus injury claim entail the following: One, let the bus driver know that you were injured and/or involved in an incident.
