Feeling Pained After a Bus Accident?
A personal injury attorney from the Advocates Law can help eliminate some of the stresses of your life coming from your accident.
For victims, a bus accident can be a terrifying experience. The accident can cause significant physical pain. Such unforeseen injuries can result in costly medical bills and other expenses. Correspondingly, a bus accident can cause immense psychological damage as well. Bus accidents come in various forms. For instance, a bus can hit a pedestrian while he/she is crossing the street at a busy intersection. A bus could hit your car while you are on your way to work. You could also be riding the bus when the bus collides with something else, causing harm to yourself and the other occupants of the bus. In whatever form, bus accidents occur far more frequently than most people realize. While they may not be as common as a typical car accident, a bus accident can potentially be more devastating due to the large nature of buses. Trying to improve your health after your bus injury can be a challenge if you are suffering from debilitating stress resulting from the accident. For instance, if you have to deal with medical bills, lost wages, and property damage, you can feel overwhelmed by the agony of the whole ordeal.

Don’t Allow This Bus Accident Ruin Your Life!
Your involvement in a bus accident can be complicated and demanding. A recent report by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) reports that 3,978 large trucks and buses were involved in fatal crashes in 2014. In the same year, the FMCSA recorded an estimated 22,000 people were injured in a bus crash. They classified these injuries as everything from minor to life-threatening. The FMCSA also reports that the number of vehicle miles traveled (VMT) is also steadily increasing for buses. An illustration of this rise is the 5.5 increase in VMT in 2014. As mentioned, bus accidents can be quite troublesome to navigate. For this reason, the type of accident influences the way you deal with the case. For example, if you were an occupant on a bus when you crashed, your injuries might be different due to your lack of a seatbelt than someone driving a car. Because of these differing layers of complexity, a personal injury attorney from the Advocates Law is an important resource because your Advocate can serve as your guide.
People frequently choose the Advocates because of our commitment to:
• PEOPLE FIRST. When injured in a bus accident, we will help you in your recovery first. Then, when you are on the mend, we can all focus on the details of your case.
•STRAIGHT TALK. A bus driver is required to have a different insurance policy than a regular driver of a car. Because of this, the process of dealing with the insurance company can be intimidating. We know this process well and can help you understand it too.
•EVERYONE WINS. When you receive a fair settlement and are well-treated, you are a winner. We win too by successfully representing our client and building a relationship of trust.
