Common Questions

  • Questions

  • Who will be held accountable for my accident?

    Answer

    If you were injured in an accident caused by no fault of your own, or if a loved one has been wrongfully killed due to another party’s negligent or reckless behavior, then you could be eligible to file a claim and pursue financial compensation under your State’s personal injury laws. Different parties can be held responsible for an accident that resulted in injury, including individuals (like a reckless bus driver) or an entity (such as a product manufacturer).

  • What type of compensation can I recover?

    Answer

    Recoveries can come in two forms: non-economic compensation and economic compensation. Economic compensation typically refers to the following: medical bills (past and current), lost wages due to time away from work, lost earning capacity, and property damages. Non-economic compensation can refer to: emotional pain and suffering, change in lifestyle, loss of companionship, or loss of enjoyment of life. Other forms of compensation can also include punitive damages or wrongful death claims.

  • Should I accept the deal my insurance company provided?

    Answer

    You have insurance coverage for a reason: when emergencies hit, you want to know that you are covered. Unfortunately, most insurance company settlements are so pitifully low that most victims are left with additional expenses in the aftermath of an accident. We know that the last thing you want is a courtroom battle, but we can help make sure you receive the full compensation you really deserve.

  • Why do I need a lawyer?

    Answer

    Working with an attorney can help level the playing field. Simply put, our firm makes sure insurance companies don’t try to corner you into accepting a low-ball offer. We know how to investigate a case to make sure you are receiving the full amount of compensation, and then we fight hard to make sure you do not receive anything less than what you rightly deserve.

Understanding Fault & Cause in Bus Accidents

Bus accidents can be caused by all sorts of things, including fault or no-fault events. Bus accidents may be rare compared to the frequency in which auto accidents occur. When a collision with a bus does happen, however, they can be devastating.
