What should I do if I’m injured in a bus accident?
If you’re injured as a passenger in a bus accident or in any incident involving a bus, the first thing that you should do is make your injuries known to the bus driver. The bus company should have some process where you report your claim, and that may include filling out paperwork or just calling in and reporting the incident. You want to make sure you follow whatever process or procedure you’re told. Also, while you’re doing that, you want to record as much information as you can, including the bus driver’s name and the date, time and location of the incident.
Obviously, if you’re injured, your health is the most important consideration and you want to seek medical treatment. You also want to continue to follow up with your medical practitioners. Finally, it’s important for you to reach out to an experienced personal injury attorney early on; someone who has tried personal injury cases involving bus accidents. A lawyer like that will be able to guide you through the process, will be able to negotiate your claim and if need be and try your case.
