WHAT SHOULD I DO AFTER A BUS ACCIDENT?

BHas your car been struck by a public transportation bus while you were driving? Were you crossing a street when a public bus hit you?  Have you been injured while riding a city or school bus?  According to the American Public Transportation Association, in 2018, Americans took 9.9 billion trips on public transportation. Public transportation is a $71 billion industry and it employs more than 430,000 employees. Approximately 6,800 organizations provide public transportation in the United States. People are relying on public transportation more each day. More organizations are involved in the public transportation industry, employing more drivers. This increases the likelihood of negligence of these employees and you could be in harm’s way. That’s why it’s important to call bus accident lawyers in the event of an accident. 

I HAVE BEEN HIT BY A CITY BUS. WHAT SHOULD I DO?

If you have been injured in a collision with a public transportation vehicle, you should seek treatment right away. You should go to a hospital or urgent care as soon as possible to be treated for your injuries. Then you should contact AMGJ Law.

WHAT IF THE POLICE DID NOT MAKE A REPORT?

If the police were not called to the scene or are refusing to come to the scene, you should document as much as you can. Did anyone see the collision? Those are witnesses. Collect their names, phone numbers, and email addresses. Is the driver acting oddly?  Pull out your phone and record. Record any statements anyone is making. If the driver appears as if they have lost the normal use of their functions, record them. Take pictures at the scene. Take pictures of the area. For example, is the intersection controlled by traffic lights or signs, is there construction, is there items obstructing the view. Take pictures because these conditions may be gone tomorrow, or in a month or a year when your case goes to trial.

WHO IS RESPONSIBLE FOR MY INJURIES?

The driver of the bus that struck you is responsible for your injuries. But there may be additional parties at fault, such as the company that failed to train the driver, the city that did not supervise the driver adequately, or the school district that ignored the driver’s past driving history. These are all parties that may also be responsible.

THE INSURANCE ADJUSTER FOR THE BUS COMPANY IS CONTACTING ME, WHAT DO I SAY?

You have been hit and now an insurance adjuster is contacting you. They may ask for a recorded or written statement from you. This statement could be used in the future to influence your claim. Protect your rights, call the attorneys at AMGJ Law before you make any statements to the adjuster. Allow the attorneys at AMGJ Law to advise you and protect you.
