Long Island Bus Accident Attorney
How to Pursue Compensation After a Bus Accident
Both private and public bus companies have a legal responsibility to ensure
their passengers' safety. When a bus company's negligence results
in an accident, it can result in severe and even deadly injuries. There
are many reasons why bus accidents occur, including acts of negligence such as:
- A poorly trained bus driver
- A driver that didn't follow highway traffic and safety laws
- Inattentive driving
- Driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs
- Inadequate or improper vehicle maintenance
Many bus accidents are the result of the bus company or driver's
negligence, but they can also be caused by the negligence of another motor vehicle,
a manufactured part that was installed on the bus, or a poorly maintained
road. If you were injured in a bus accident,
contact a Long Island injury lawyer to discuss your rights to personal injury compensation and how to pursue
a claim for damages.
Most insurance carriers will do everything they can to stall payment on
a claim and will even go so far as to deny the merits of a valid case.
With the help of a knowledgeable compensation attorney, it will be much
easier to overcome their administrative hurdles and achieve a just settlement.
