Bus Accident Victims & Causes

Bus accident victims are not always passengers. While passengers account for many injury claims, other motorists, bus drivers, bicyclists, and pedestrians can pursue damages as well.

When local or state government entities are responsible for a bus accident it is sometimes required to put the government on notice. This often allows the accident victim a short period of time to notify the government or local agency. In these situations it is extremely important that the injured party obtains a lawyer promptly.
