Bus Accidents

Thousands of people go to school, work and other destinations on Connecticut buses each day and trust that they will arrive safely. Unfortunately, bus accidents occur on an all-too-frequent basis, many of which involve injuries to bus passengers and other drivers on the road.

Pursuing claims against public, private or school bus companies may provide you with the necessary compensation to pay for your medical expenses, as well as cover lost wages from your inability to work. These claims also ensure that negligent bus operators are held accountable so that they will improve the safety of their buses in the future.

If you have been involved in a bus accident, contact my firm to schedule a free initial consultation with an experienced attorney.

The Complex Nature Of Bus Accident Recovery

Bus accidents can occur in many ways and for a variety of reasons. Some bus accidents involve other vehicles on the road, while others occur on the buses themselves. In most cases, the accidents are caused by negligence on the part of the bus drivers or the companies responsible for the vehicles. Common bus accidents may include:

  • Collisions with passenger vehicles
  • Accidents involving pedestrians in crosswalks or at bus stops
  • Overcrowding on buses
  • Accelerating or stopping too quickly, causing passengers to fall
  • Assaults on buses
  • Pulling away too fast from bus stops
  • Slip, trip and fall accidents on buses

At my firm, I will discuss the circumstances of your bus accident and the injuries that you sustained as a result of the bus accident. I will help you understand what your rights and options are after a bus accident, and I will provide honest advice about your potential claim.
