    Bus Accidents

    Bus collisions are typically caused by the following factors:

    Bus drivers aren’t the only unsafe motorists. Distracted drivers, careless bicyclists, and motorcyclists also cause many bus accidents.

    If you didn’t cause the bus accident, you deserve full compensation. However, you’ll need an Atlanta bus accident lawyer to help you achieve that result.

    Steps To Take After A Bus Accident

    If you’re a bus accident victim, you should take the following steps to maximize your settlement:

    • Photograph the collision scene. Those photos demonstrate the collision impact severity.
    • Collect witness statements. Even if the police officer cited the at fault party, that individual may deny fault. A witness statement helps you prove your claim.
    • Get medical care ASAP. If you delay seeking medical care, your injuries might not heal. Additionally, the insurance adjuster may penalize your treatment delay.
    • Obtain the police report. You should purchase the police report as soon as it’s available. Your lawyer needs that report to file your insurance claim.
    • Don’t settle your case on your own.The insurance adjuster will assume you’re desperate if you try to settle your claim on your own. They’ll never offer you what you deserve unless you hire a lawyer.

    Bus Accident Compensation

    There are three types of damages that you may receive if you’re injured in a bus accident.

    • Economic damages are quantifiable losses, such as your lost wages, medical expenses, and damaged property.
    • Non-economic damages cover your pain and suffering.
    • Punitive damages punish reckless misconduct. They aren’t available in most cases. However, they are usually available in drunk driving accident cases.
