Injured In A Bus Accident? You Probably Have Questions.
No one expects to be injured in a bus accident. Without a doubt, your mind is reeling. You have so many questions about medical treatment, recovery, compensation and the legal process. At The Epstein Law Firm, P.A., our attorneys have over 100 years of combined experience helping clients injured in bus accidents. Here, we will answer some of our clients’ most frequently asked questions.
Q. What should I do after a bus accident?
If you were in a bus accident — as a passenger, pedestrian or motorist — the first thing you should do is seek medical treatment. If necessary, call an ambulance and go to the hospital. You should also try to document the scene of the accident. Take photographs of the scene and the vehicles involved. Gather the contact information of the bus driver and any eyewitnesses. Then, consult a personal injury attorney.
Q. Who is liable for my injuries?
Liability is always a major question after a bus accident. Several parties could be at fault for the accident, including the bus driver, the transit company or another motorist. Our legal team always carefully investigates the circumstances of your accident to determine who is liable.
Q. How will I pay my medical bills? What about my other damages?
Injuries can require expensive medical treatment. In many cases, you may be entitled to monetary compensation to help you pay for your bills. If you have other damages, such as lost wages, damages to your vehicle, emotional damage and loss of companionship, you may deserve compensation for these as well.
Q. Should I contact a lawyer?
You may think that hiring a lawyer is not necessary. However, working with a skilled personal injury attorney can help the legal process run smoothly and quickly. A lawyer can also work to obtain the maximum compensation available. It is in your best interests to schedule a consultation with a law firm that helps personal injury victims in New Jersey.
