Cypress Bus Accident Attorneys

If you or a loved one has been injured in a Cypress bus accident, you are probably left with a number of questions. What are some of the actions you should take immediately after the accident? Whose fault was the accident? Are you eligible to receive compensation? A skilled Cypress bus accident lawyer can help you understand your legal rights and options.

What should be done immediately following a bus accident?

There are a few crucial steps that victims of bus accidents would be well advised to take. First, it is important to write down everything you remember about the accident. Where were you sitting in the bus? When and where did the accident occur? What is the name of the bus company and bus operator? Were you injured in the crash? It would be in your best interest to get your name on the police report to help prove that you were on the bus. Last, but not least, you should seek out medical attention.

If I’m not sure if I’m hurt, do I have to go to the hospital?

If there is any chance that you may have been hurt or if you are experiencing pain after the crash, you should see a doctor. You should get checked even if there are no signs of visible injuries. Many injuries, such as whiplash injuries and head injuries, can get worse over time if not properly treated. Seeing a doctor could increase your chances of having a full recovery. Your medical records also serve as legal documents to prove the extent of your injuries, the treatments you have received and the expenses you have incurred as a result.

Who will pay for my medical treatment?

The bus company has a legal obligation to cover the medical expenses of their injured passengers. There are many rules and regulations that require bus companies to not only protect their passengers, but also compensate them in the event of a collision. Bus companies are not, however, the only potentially liable parties in bus accidents.

Who may be held liable for the injuries I have suffered?

Liability for the bus crash could depend on who caused the crash and whose negligence contributed to the accident. Bus companies and bus operators are commonly included on injury claims. Other motorists who may have caused the crash can be held accountable for their negligence. In some cases, the mechanic who worked on the bus, a transit authority, the manufacturer of a defective auto part or even the governmental agency responsible for maintaining a roadway can be held responsible for a crash as well. A skilled Cypress bus accident lawyer will be able to determine who should be held responsible for the crash.

What kind of losses can be covered?

All losses suffered by victims of Cypress bus accidents can be included in a claim. In addition to medical bills, victims may pursue compensation for their lost wages, the costs associated with rehabilitation services and other financial losses. Non-financial losses such as pain and suffering may be included in a claim as well. It is often difficult to calculate the value of a claim without help from a skilled injury lawyer.

Do I have to sue the bus company?

Not all injuries require the victim to file a personal injury claim against the at-fault driver or bus company. Minor injuries, for example, will likely get taken care of by the bus company within a reasonable amount of time. If the injuries are serious or the bus company is refusing to offer a reasonable settlement, then, an attorney should be contacted.

Will I need an attorney?

Bus companies, especially the larger ones, have a team of lawyers on standby to fight any claims made against them. Their insurance companies will also do their best to minimize the payouts they may have to give out to injured victims. Bus accident victims should not have to fight against the bus company and their attorneys alone. In many cases, a skilled bus accident lawyer can get a claim settled before it even goes to court.

Is it expensive to hire a bus accident attorney?

The best personal injury lawyers offer free consultations on all potential claims. Additionally, a skilled bus accident lawyer will work on a contingency basis. This means that they will not get paid until you win your claim. The experienced Cypress bus accident lawyers of our firm have a long and successful track record of holding bus companies and other at-fault parties accountable. We have helped numerous bus accident victims secure fair and full compensation for their damages and losses.
