Don’t accept a settlement without speaking to a lawyer
In the days following an accident, you may be offered a settlement from the bus company or their insurance company. If you’re struggling with medical bills, car repair bills, and missed paychecks, you may jump at the chance for easy money. Depending on your situation, it might even sound like a generous sum. However, insurance companies rarely pay out more than that absolutely have to, and they’ll probably ask you to give up your right to further legal action if you accept their terms. You need a bus accident lawyer who represents your best interests to examine the situation and help you decide the right course of action.
Your lawyer should be thorough
Busses are very big, and they can do a lot of damage in a collision. Because of this, there are laws that require bus companies to hire drivers with clean driving records, ensure their drivers receive proper training and perform routine maintenance on their fleet. Most companies abide by the rules, but some try to save a buck by cutting corners. Hawaiian Gardens bus accident lawyers with Ellis Law will review service records, training certificates, and driving records, and check area speed cameras and security cameras. It may even be necessary to review cell data to see if the driver was actively engaged with their digital device leading up to the crash.
Consultations are 100% free and confidential
The only way to know for sure if you should seek a large settlement is to sit down with a personal injury attorney from Ellis Law.
