Bus accidents can be catastrophic in terms of the injuries and fatalities they are capable of causing. Tour buses, coaches, school buses, trolleys, and local commuter buses are just some of the types of vehicles that can be involved in these severe accidents.
The experienced personal injury attorneys at Whetstone Perkins & Fulda are ready to stand at your side to fight aggressively on your behalf.
Typical Bus Accident Claims
There is a wide range of reasons a bus accident may occur, including:
- Bus driver error
- Improperly trained drivers
- Poor hiring practices
- Defective bus equipment
- Inadequate bus maintenance
Of course, bus accidents may also be caused by bad weather or other things outside of the driver’s control. However, when someone else’s negligence is the cause of the accident, you deserve maximum compensation for any injuries you suffer. In pursuing your bus accident claim, our experienced attorneys will fight to recover full compensation for your medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering, and for any other damages particular to your claim.
Who Is Responsible for the Bus Accident?
Because there are so many types of buses, there are numerous potentially at-fault parties in these cases:
- Bus driver
- Company that manages, owns, and/or operates the bus
- Company responsible for maintaining the bus
- Manufacturers of bus components
- Road contractors
- Those responsible for road maintenance
With decades of combined experience and extensive investigative resources, the attorneys at Whetstone Perkins & Fulda can determine who is responsible for causing the accident that injured you. Whether a corporation, a local or state entity, or an individual is ultimately responsible, we know how to resolve your case to secure the best possible outcome for you.
