Lancaster Bus Accident Lawyers
Auto accidents can turn your life upside down, especially when that accident involves a vehicle weighing roughly 10 to 12 tons such as a public bus. Not only does the sheer weight, additional people, and lack of safety features on buses often result in greater losses than a standard vehicle collision, but it can also be more difficult and confusing to determine which party (or parties) should be held responsible for the incident.
Choosing the right Lancaster bus accident lawyers can make the process easier and help ensure that you collect the maximum amount of compensation for your injuries.
Knowing who’s responsible
A lot of things can contribute to a bus accident—bad roads, faulty equipment, an improperly trained driver, other vehicles, etc. Sometimes, it can be a mix of one or more things that lead to a bus accident. All of this can make it difficult for you to pinpoint which party’s negligence was the cause of the accident that resulted in your injury.
Examples of potential negligent parties include:
- A distracted, drunk, or reckless bus driver
- A lack of training provided by the bus company
- Mechanics who failed to properly correct mechanical issues
- Manufacturers of defective tires, brakes, or other mechanical equipment
- Another driver that caused the accident
At Ellis Law, our personal injury lawyers will take the time to fully investigate your case to determine which parties should be held legally responsible for your injuries. This may even involve coming out to the scene of the accident to collect critical evidence before it’s gone that can be used in your case. This is why we encourage clients to contact us immediately after a bus accident.
Bus accidents can result in severe injuries. This makes determining a fair settlement amount difficult for injured parties, as not everything lost can fully be recouped by money. Your Ellis Law bus accident lawyer understands that the suffering from your injury extends well past the physical pain and medical bills, and will uncover every impact the accident has or will have on your life to ensure you receive the maximum possible reparation.
Some of the things that can be included in your lawsuit are:
- A decrease in quality of life
- The need for additional childcare, housework, etc.
- Missed workdays or loss of job
- Cost of current and future medical care
