New York, New Jersey and Nationwide
Your safety or the safety of your child may be threatened at any time by being involved in a bus accident. Like truck accidents, bus accidents are often very severe because of the size of the vehicle involved, especially if a smaller vehicle is caught in the accident. If you or your child has been the victim of a bus accident, the experienced attorneys at Morelli Ratner PC can help you recover.
Types of Bus Accidents
Bus accidents may be caused by the bus driver or by the driver of another automobile, but often those riding on the bus are at great danger because of a lack of safety restraints. Any type of bus may be involved in an accident, but recent events have drawn attention to:
- School bus accidents
- Public transportation bus accidents
- Tour bus accidents
The cumbersome designs of buses also make it possible for a bus to be the only vehicle involved in the accident, or to involve several other vehicles and even pedestrians in accidents. Recently a bus in Rochester, New York, collided with a sedan, causing injuries to both drivers and the children riding as passengers on the bus. While the injuries in some cases like this may be minor, in many cases injuries are more severe and may even result in wrongful death.
Recovering from a Bus Accident
A bus accident may cause injury, property damage, or death, and in many cases all three. If you have experienced any type of injury or loss caused by a bus accident, undergoing a free case evaluation with the bus accident attorneys at Morelli Ratner PC can help you take the first steps toward financial and emotional recovery.
Many types of personal injuries make financial recovery impossible without the compensation the law allows you to pursue afterwards. Bus accidents are no different, and you may be facing more than one at-fault individual. Working with our experienced attorneys can help you understand the steps the law allows you to take against such individuals. The statute of limitations regarding bus accidents varies by state, so hesitating to move forward may cost you significant financial loss.
