Public, charter, and school buses are extremely large means of transportation that can lead to serious injuries for those involved in an accident. Much like commercial 18-wheelers, damage from a bus accident differs wildly from your typical car crash. This is because buses contain much more mass than almost any other vehicle on the road. Additionally, because many people use buses as a primary means of transportation, these vehicles tend to carry a large number of passengers. Based on sheer numbers, this makes it much more likely for a passenger to fall victim to a serious injury should something go awry.
Victims of bus accidents face a costly endeavor—no matter who is at fault. Some of the costs can be easily measured. These expenses include property damage, medical bills, and lost wages. On the other hand, there are also expenses that are not so easy to calculate. Such costs include increased insurance rates, lost productivity at work, and administrative fees. The fact of the matter is that insurance company adjusters will do everything in their power to minimize your settlement. That being said, hiring a team of experienced personal injury lawyers, such as the Ward Law Group, will give you a fair chance when negotiating a more appropriate settlement.

Several US states report that nearly 30% of all their bus accidents result in some kind of personal injury. As far as motor vehicle accidents are concerned, this is a very high statistic. Common types of bus accidents include:
Traffic accidents vary widely, from low-speed fender benders to devastating collisions that lead to fatal injuries. Of course, bus accidents are no exception to this. Additionally, many buses are not equipped with safety restraints or other safety devices, such as seatbelts and airbags. Therefore, it is not so much the matter of bus accident prevalence, but rather the risk of personal injury when bus accidents do occur. Common forms of personal injury associated with bus accidents are:

It is very important to receive a thorough medical evaluation immediately after a motor vehicle accident. This is especially true in the case of bus accidents (or any large vehicle for that matter). Not only is this important for the victim’s health and well-being, but it will also help the Ward Law Group gather evidence to use in settlement negotiations.
Most buses are owned and operated by cities or other public authorities. Suing governmental agencies is usually a bit different from suing private individuals. In many cases, claimants may have less time to file their claims than they would in a normal case due to different statutes of limitations.
When you contact an attorney shortly after an accident, they will usually send out investigators to gather pertinent evidence for substantiating your claim. This may stretch across several mediums, from photographic pictures to eyewitness testimonies. During this time, your attorney will also help you determine the damages incurred from the motor vehicle accident. This includes taking care of any important paperwork that your insurance company will require.
Lastly, it is important to provide your insurance company with relevant information that accurately displays the severity of your case. This includes everything from personal injuries to the potential earnings lost from not being able to work. You will also need to share any medical expenses or applicable information regarding your health. All of these moving parts will provide your attorney with the evidence they need to substantiate your claim
Straight to the point: corporations and large insurance firms will do anything to swindle their way out of giving you the compensation that you deserve. They want nothing more than to minimize the amount of money that they owe you for your suffering. Luckily, you don’t have to accept that.
The Ward Law Group knows how to handle these tricky matters with efficiency and ease. Our team will ensure that you receive every applicable form of compensation for your specific case. This includes everything from mental turmoil to personal property damages.
Remember, language is not a barrier with the Ward Law Group. It’s a feature. Our English and Spanish-speaking attorneys are ready and able to take on the world for your benefit. Contact our team of legal experts today!
