Llano Bus Accident Lawyers
If you’ve been involved in a bus accident, as a passenger, a pedestrian, or the driver of another vehicle, you may not have to struggle through the financial impact alone. In many bus accident incidents, injured parties could be eligible for compensation to cover the cost of injuries and other damages. While it certainly doesn’t reverse the situation, monetary compensation can help to ease the financial stress of medical bills, lost wages, and other life changes.
If you or someone you love has been injured in a bus accident, don’t wait to file for reparations. Llano bus accident lawyers from Ellis Law can help you determine whether or not your accident may be eligible for compensation.
Common bus accident injuries
A lot of things can go wrong when it comes to bus accidents. The weight and size of a bus can make it difficult to stop or avoid sudden obstacles, more prone to rolling over during a collision and be much more devastating for the object it strikes. Having an excess of people coming on and off the bus, moving around, standing up, or sitting without seatbelts can also increase the likeliness of severe injuries when an accident occurs.
Some common injuries that can be sustained during a bus accident are:
- Broken or dislocated bones
- Back or neck sprains
- Cuts and lacerations
- Spinal cord trauma
- Amputation of limbs
- Brain injury
These, and other injuries, that can occur from a bus accident can range from temporary setbacks to life-altering pain, disabilities, and loss. Our personal injury lawyers can help you sort through the impact of your injury and how much you should be compensated for it.
Common damages claimed
Determining how much the responsible party should pay due to their negligence can depend on many different factors. While some lawyers will look at only the current impact of your injuries, such as medical bills and lost wages, a bus accident lawyer from Ellis Law understands that the financial effects can extend well past current needs. Not only do we include obvious reparations that are urgently needed to pay for medical costs, but we also investigate how the injury may impact your future finances.
Some things we may include in a lawsuit are:
- Ongoing medical care, including treatment, devices, and equipment, in-home nurses, medication, etc.
- Damages to property
- Future lost wages and work opportunities due to an inability to work
- Drastic decreases in the quality of life
- Emotional and mental trauma caused by the accident
- Costs associated with the loss of a parent, spouse, adult child, or head of household
- Funeral and memorial costs
Each case may be different and your personal injury attorney will work with you to determine what damages should be included in your lawsuit.
