Anyone Involved in a Bus Accident May Be Eligible for Compensation for Their Damages
Whether you were in a bus that got into an accident, or you were in a car when the bus accident happened, the at-fault party is responsible for your damages. This is even true if you were a pedestrian who was struck by a bus, if you were on a bike, or even a motorcycle. However, it is imperative that you get care as soon as possible.
There Are Several Reasons It is Important to Get Help Sooner Rather Than Later
As soon as the bus company finds out there was an accident, you can count on their insurance companies getting to work. They will be
Because as soon as they hear of the bus accident, the bus company, their insurance provider, and their attorneys will be looking for any possible way to deny or reduce your claim. For example, they may try to argue that they are not liable for the accident, that your injuries are not as serious as you say, or even that your injuries predated the accident. You need an attorney working on your behalf to counter their efforts and make sure your ability to seek full and fair compensation for your injuries is preserved.

Now You May Wonder…
…What’s My Case Worth?
Placing a dollar figure on a bus accident injury claim is no simple matter. The value of your particular case depends not only on the cost of your medical treatment and the severity of your injuries, but also on the strength of the evidence in the case. The stronger the evidence, the more likely the bus company will be willing to settle quickly for a fair amount. But if the evidence of liability is weak, you may have to choose between accepting a lower settlement or risking litigation.
Before we can even estimate the value of your case, much less decide how much compensation to request from the at-fault party, we will need to consider all possible types of compensation you may be entitled to, such as:
- Past and future medical costs
- Pain and suffering
- Lost income
- Lost earning capacity
- Property damage (in case of vehicles hit by a bus)
- Punitive damages (in case of especially egregious behavior on the part of a bus company)
- Do I Really Need a Bus Accident Attorney?
Sometimes, people fall into the trap of thinking that once they’ve received a settlement offer, there’s nothing more an attorney can do for them. This couldn’t be further from the truth. An attorney’s assistance is vital when considering any settlement offer, because it is an attorney’s insight into the true value of your claim that will equip you to decide if the offer is fair or if you need to fight for a better offer.
In almost every case, the initial settlement offer is not the best offer. You will need to negotiate for the insurance company for additional compensation, and you will definitely want a skilled and experienced attorney like The Law Offices of Larry H. Parker on your side for this effort.
