Because a bus is a large vehicle and might be carrying a number of passengers, it has the potential to cause a serious collision that leaves many people injured. In these matters, it is important to work with a personal injury attorney who can get to the bottom of the cause of the bus accident in order to help you seek fair compensation for your injuries.
Buses offer travelers an economical, convenient and scenic transportation option. They also provide accessible form of transit for many communities. In spite of these benefits, we are truly putting our lives in the hands of transportation companies, bus manufacturers and bus drivers. Any mistake can be devastating as we are at the mercy of a 40,000-pound vehicle that we have no control over. Bus accidents can lead to catastrophic injuries or even wrongful death given the immense forces bus passengers are exposed to when an accident happens. Despite repeated requests from the National Transportation Safety Board, bus manufacturers still do not equip buses with seat belts, further putting passengers at risk. If you or a loved one has been impacted by a bus accident, it is critical that you contact a personal injury attorney at our firm right away. When a bus accident occurs, many large organizations become involved with each looking to protect their own interest. At The Olsinski Law Firm, PLLC, you are our first priority. We will aggressively fight for your rights.
