If you or your loved one has been a victim of a bus accident in Texas, contacting a personal injury attorney can enable you seek compensation for the harm you have sustained, in addition to any other incidental or property damages you have been forced to incur. Our lawyers have the resources and experience to successfully litigate a bus accident claim against bus companies and drivers in Texas. Our team’s experience in handling bus accident lawsuits allows victims to focus on healing their injuries instead of worrying about the legal process.

Bus accidents often lead to life changing injuries, with many victims being forced to live under with immobility, as they undergo a series of treatment procedures to heal their injuries. For many, this tends to be the turning point of their lives as they stop being independent, and start depending on others, such as friends and family, to fulfill their daily needs. We engage with such bus accident victims regularly, and while they share their stories of pain and agony, we pursue justice against the bus driver or company in question.

Through our firm, you can return to your normal life without the fear of the unknown. We not only help you seek justice and get compensated, but also ensure that what you receive as settlement is enough to make up for the pain caused, more so when your means of earning income is diminished by reckless bus drivers.

Public transit vehicle collisions are not new on the highways and streets of Texas. Road accidents involving buses make up a substantial percentage of collisions that result in serious injury. The magnitude of injuries depends on both the speed of the vehicles and how the mechanism of injury affects the victim. However, when it comes to seeking justice, every injury counts, and if the bus accident was not your fault, you are owed for the damage caused. But this often cannot happen without the help of an experienced Texas bus accident lawyer.

What Are the Most Common Bus Accident Injuries?

Bus accident injuries vary based on a number of issues. For example, an accident that happens while passengers are wearing seat belts cannot be compared to those without. This means that those without any safety mechanisms in place will likely suffer more harm. Also, the magnitude of a bus collision depends on how it takes place and how is involved. A 90-year-old is more likely to feel pain from a public transit vehicle accident than a 22-year-old.

Common bus accident injuries in Texas include:

  • Spinal cord injuries
  • Neck injuries
  • Concussions
  • Broken bones
  • Lacerations
  • Whiplash
  • Wrongful death

Bus accident injuries are not always severe. Some victims will sustain minor bruises, bumps, and scrapes. Many of these are treatable at home, with no necessity for medical attention. However, those with injuries that require medical care may need the services of a local attorney.

Reasons to Hire a Lawyer

The law provides room for a public vehicle transit crash victim to file a lawsuit against the bus driver or company by himself or herself. However, the prospects of receiving a fair settlement or verdict in such a scenario are not good, and you are likely to face major legal setbacks as you proceed through the legal system. As a bus accident victim, you are set to face a hostile, experienced, and dedicated defense counsel representing the negligent bus driver or bus company.

These attorneys will stop at nothing to ensure that you receive as little compensation as possible, and if you are lucky enough to receive a settlement, its value will likely be far less than the actual value of your case. While you will be seeking medical attention for injuries sustained from your bus accident in Texas, the defense team will be investigating any avenue to show how you were responsible for the collision. One of our lawyers can fight on your behalf to present the best evidence exhibiting the bus driver or bus company’s negligence. We will go the extra mile to collect all evidence, interview witnesses, and ensure that your rights as a victim are protected.
