Bus accidents can cause numerous damages, including pain and suffering, large medical bills, untold property damage, and loss of income. Plus, the weight and speed of the bus almost always causes additional catastrophic damage to both the vehicles and people involved. If you or a loved one were involved in a collision involving a bus, don’t fall for a quick settlement. Contact Ellis & Associates for expert legal counsel.
Many large bus crashes and rollovers are caused by negligence on the part of the bus driver or bus company. For example, all of the following actions can cause catastrophic bus accidents:
- Driver fatigue
- Bus driver inattention
- Bus driver error
- Aggressive driving by the bus driver
- Bus speeding
- Poor bus maintenance (bald tires, defective breaks, etc.)
- Bus mechanical failure
- Improper hiring practices
- Inadequate safety training policies
Without the help of an experienced attorney, victims of bus accidents are rarely prepared to deal with the large-scale defense that the bus companies will begin building immediately after the accident. Large bus companies, such as Greyhound and Peter Pan, will go to great lengths and spend a tremendous amount of money to protect themselves.
Let Ellis & Associates Protect Your Rights
In the immediate aftermath of a collision, you should be focusing on your health and getting well. However, while you’re recovering, the bus company will direct its team of representatives to begin developing their defense and to potentially destroy crucial evidence. For this reason, it is extremely important that you have a team of attorneys on your side who will go to the scene of the crash, preserve evidence, and ensure that your rights are protected.
At Ellis & Associates of Worcester, Massachusetts, our experienced attorneys offer knowledgeable legal counsel and reliable representation. We will fight for your rights and help you secure all of the compensation you deserve. There is no obligation, and your initial consultation is absolutely free.
