Hiring a personal injury attorney from the Advocates Law could be a key step on your road to recovery.
Being involved in a bus accident can be a petrifying occurrence. Bus accidents often result in serious physical injury for victims. Such injuries require medical attention that can result in costly medical bills. Similarly, a bus accident can lead to grievous mental suffering as well. Because a bus accident can take many forms, the healing process will differ slightly depending upon the circumstances of the accident. For example, if a bus hits a pedestrian, the healing process is going to differ from an occupant on a bus who is injured when the bus crashes. Same thing applies to a bus and car collision. No matter the form, bus accidents can be a complicated for those involved. For example, a bus accident may lead to challenges involving medical bills, property damage, and lost wages.

Take Charge of Your Life After Your Bus Accident!
Bus accidents are far more common than many people realize. A report compiled by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) in 2014 found that 3,978 large trucks and buses had been involved in fatal accidents that year. Furthermore, the FMCSA estimated that 22,000 people were injured in a bus crash that same year. The injuries for those affected ranged from minor to severe. The FMCSA also noted a rise by 5.5 percent in vehicle miles traveled (VMT) in 2014. This increase might be due, in part, to cities and suburbs increasing the public transportation services they provide to residents. Typically, bus drivers carry more extensive insurance coverage than ordinary drivers. Because of this, trying to negotiate insurance claims can be a weighty matter. Your Advocate can protect your interests and needs.
