Taking public transportation is a cost-effective option for many people. It’s also helpful for parents to have their children picked up by a government sanctioned school bus for the daily route to and from public school. But bus accidents still happen every year—37% of bus fatalities are due to school buses—and if a bus driver’s negligence has caused you or your loved one to suffer injuries, you deserve compensation. Hinkle Law Offices, P.C. can help.
How is This Different from a Car Accident?
In a car collision, fault is usually easy to assign. A negligent car driver can then be pursued for compensation for the pain and suffering they’ve inflicted on you and your loved ones. Bus drivers, however, are usually employees of government programs, such as school districts or public transportation bureaus. This makes holding them responsible for negligence much more complicated.
If the bus’s insurance denies your claim, you’re left with medical expenses, lost wages and loss of earning potential. Filing a personal injury claim against a government entity is complicated, and you need to do so in a timely manner to avoid being overlooked entirely. This is why a personal injury attorney is the best option for representation when a bus driver’s negligence has caused you pain and suffering.
