Questions About Bus Accident Claims | How Do I Get Started?
You may be asking yourself, “What are the steps that we need to take to file a bus accident claim?” We’ve got to do our investigation like we would do any investigation. You need to get your medical care and treatment which is first and foremost and you need to make sure that you’re following all the steps of your doctors.
We need to be going out there and getting photographs of the vehicles, preserving evidence of the scene of the accident, and conferring with the entity that owns the bus company to make sure that if there’s any video on the bus that’s being preserved. If there is a vehicle black box, or event data recorder, we need to make sure that our letters go out to that company to make sure that electronic information is being preserved.
Those are all the steps that we’re going to take initially. Once we understand the dynamics of what happened, and we understand who failed to use reasonable care under the circumstances in causing that accident to occur, then from there we’re going to be putting your medical information together in a comprehensive demand to the at-fault party and their insurance company to ensure that you indeed receive your full and fair compensation.
Questions About Bus Accident Claims | How Much is My Case Worth?
When you are injured in a bus accident, you may be wondering how we determine the value of your claim. We’re going to prosecute your claim to the fullest extent of the law and that the value would depend on what your losses were and what they will be. That would include past medical expenses, future medical expenses, past lost wages, future lost wages, and of course, any pain and suffering from the time of the accident that you may have to endure the rest of your life.
That’s how we assess the value. It’s different for every client of ours. Each case is unique. They have different expectations for the happiness that they want to achieve in their lives, and to the extent that an injury affects it even a little bit of it, it can affect the value of a claim. That’s how we determine the value. It’s all about getting a full understanding of our client in every way in which that accident and that injury has affected them.
