Las Vegas Bus Accident Attorney

Bus Collision Lawyers serving Las Vegas, NV

Las Vegas Bus Accident AttorneyNot every auto accident involves two cars crashing or a rider getting ejected from their motorcycle. Bus accidents can occur when a bus hits a pedestrian crossing the street, a cyclist on the side of the road, or a car trying to merge into the lane. This usually does less damage to the bus and everyone inside it, resulting a terrible loss for everyone else on the road. If you’ve been hurt in a bus accident, you deserve the counsel and support of a qualified personal injury attorney in Las Vegas.

Understanding Bus Accidents

According to the US Department of Transportation, in 2011 there were:

  • 108 fatal crashes involving school buses
  • 24,000 people injured in bus crashes

The most common causes for these bus accidents include:

  • Bus driver fatigue or inattention
  • Aggressive or reckless car drivers
  • Speeding
  • Poor maintenance or mechanical failure

A 2010 study by the University of Michigan found that 325 people are killed in bus crashes each year in the USA.

 3.    What do I do if I’m involved in a bus accident?

First, seek medical attention immediately. Not all injuries are apparent, such as head trauma. Collect the names, phone numbers, and insurance information of any drivers involved in the accident, along with the names and phone numbers of any witnesses. If possible, take photos of the scene where the accident took place. Finally, contact the police so that there is an official report of the incident on record, which you can use as a reference to support your case in court.

 4.    What compensation can I get from a bus accident?

The exact compensation you’re entitled to depends on the extent of your injuries, property damage, and how much you lost in wages as a result of the accident.
