When you got on the bus, you thought you would be safe and sound. Buses are touted as being safe forms of transportation because the drivers are trained and the vehicles are deemed safe overall. However, there are times when the bus ride may take a turn for the worst and this can result in the injuries of many or even death.
If you have been involved in a bus accident or you have lost a loved one because of a bus accident, you may be entitled to compensation. At Farrish Johnson Law Office, we are committed to holding the responsible party accountable so that you can be awarded the monetary losses that you are entitled to.
Experience With All Bus Accident Scenarios
There are different scenarios in which bus accidents occur. They include:
- Bus vs. car
- Bus vs. truck
- Bus vs. bicycle
- Bus vs. Pedestrian
Those injured in bus accidents are not necessary on the bus. Individuals outside of the bus can be injured as well. A Southern Minnesota personal injury attorney from our office will work hard to establish who is at fault by determining what happened to cause the accident. Whether you or your loved one was in another vehicle, in the bus, in a truck, or a pedestrian or bicyclist, we will fight for your right to compensation.
Experience Dealing With Insurance Companies
We have extensive experience dealing with the insurance companies that insure commercial bus companies. The Mankato personal injury lawyer from our office will negotiate with the insurance company to achieve a reasonable settlement. However, there are times when the insurance company refuses to be reasonable and this means the case may need to go to trial.
We will advise you every step of the way so you can make the decision of whether or not to accept a settlement or move forward with a trial. While trials can take time, the monetary rewards for present and future medical expenses, present and future lost wages, pain and suffering, and other damages can be much greater.
In order to build a strong case, we will ensure that your medical records are used to show what the injury has done to your life, we will present witnesses who saw what happened when the accident occurred or who were also victims in the accident, and we will present other evidence so that all responsible parties are liable. Just be sure to not talk to investigators or insurance agents without talking to your attorney first. The insurance companies will try to make contact with you, but you do not have to talk to them.
