Bus Accidents

Although they are a necessary part of our infrastructure, buses can be dangerous for a variety of reasons. They are large and cumbersome. Their design creates many blind spots. They frequently travel in heavily congested areas. They make wide turns and frequent stops. And many buses are old and ill-maintained. For these reasons and others, bus accidents are a tragedy that occurs all too often.

While bus accidents can vary greatly in severity, the sheer size of these vehicles gives them the potential to cause great harm to passengers, pedestrians, and other drivers. And when even a minor injury can translate into thousands in medical bills, it is crucial for victims of bus-related injuries to know their rights.

Unnecessary delay can be harmful to any type of litigation. It is easy to lose track of witnesses and evidence as time passes. Even the witnesses who are available may not remember the incident as clearly. In addition, all the while, your medical bills and lost wages continue to accumulate.

However, delay can be harmful for other reasons as well. Under Texas law, you must file a lawsuit within two years of the date of your injury. If you wait longer, you lose your right to sue and the right to compensation for your injuries. Regardless of the quality of your case or the skill of your injury attorney, circumventing this rule is very difficult.

You may find it difficult to think about legal action as you or your loved one recovers from a serious injury. However, it is something you must consider. Medical bills, lost wages, and other incidental expenses can quickly push even comfortable families into financial trouble. And insurance alone may not be enough. However, The Bates Law Firm can negotiate with insurance companies and other responsible parties on your behalf. We can take your case through litigation and eventual trial, if necessary, to recover the compensation to which you are entitled.
