Pomona Bus Accident Lawyers
Every year, more than 63,000 public buses, school buses, charter buses, church buses, etc. are involved in accidents across the U.S. When you compare this to the overall annual average of 6 million auto accidents, it may not seem significant. However, after accounting for the sheer size and weight of a bus and the number of passengers they carry, the results can be devastating.
When you are a passenger involved in a bus accident, you are much more likely to sustain injuries due to its tendency to roll over, a lack of seat belts and other safety restraints, crowding of other people, and the impact the heavy vehicle can have when striking another object.
Financial impacts of a bus accident
Accidents happen suddenly, often uprooting your life in a matter of seconds. Many people struggle with painful injuries, permanent disabilities, or losing their source of income due to these issues. It is easy to see the physical and emotional impact that a bus accident can have on one’s life, but many clients don’t always materialize how big of a financial impact the incident can have on them and their family as well.
Our Pomona bus accident lawyers are there to step in during this time of stress to help ensure that you receive the compensation you need to recover both current and future expenses while you and your family focus on a healthy physical and emotional recovery.
Some damages your bus accident lawyer may include in your case are:
- All medical bills related to sustained injuries
- An estimated cost of future medical care and treatments
- Medical equipment and handicap renovations to your home, such as a wheelchair ramp
- Compensation for emotional and mental pain and suffering
Each case is different, and your Pomona bus accident attorney will exhaust all avenues to ensure you receive the maximum amount of compensation.
