What mistakes should I avoid after a bus accident?
One of the biggest mistakes clients make is that they don’t let anybody know that they’ve been injured. That’s probably the first thing that happens. You need to tell the bus driver, EMT, or law enforcement that you’ve been injured in a bus accident. Tell the person around you. Take photographs with your cell phone if you can. The next mistake would be turning away the ambulance. You should go to the hospital and make sure you get checked out. Even if you feel okay, you may not be okay.
The most serious mistake a person can make in a bus accident claim is they don’t hire the right attorney. It’s important that you hire an attorney who has experience and who’s willing to take the case from the very beginning all the way to a jury verdict. Don’t delay hiring that attorney because evidence begins to evaporate and witnesses memories begin to fade. Evidence by its very nature tends to dry up. It’s important that you hire an attorney at the very beginning, at the earliest opportunity.
