Do I need a bus accident attorney?
Every bus accident case, every person and every injury is different. It’s always best to have your questions answered free by an experienced bus accident attorney, so you do not miss important deadlines or unknowingly waive your legal rights.
In many bus accident cases, important evidence can be legally destroyed by bus companies and defense lawyers within a very short amount of time. And if an attorney isn’t involved to protect you, you could lose important legal rights and evidence that is critical to your case.
Also, bus companies will do whatever they can to convince you that you do not have a case. Bus companies will never offer you the full value of your lawsuit – unless they know you have an experienced attorney behind you.
Remember, never accept a settlement, sign any paperwork or make any statements without consulting with a bus accident lawyer first.

We can explain the compensation and benefits you could be entitled to, and how to protect yourself.
