Types of Bus Accident Claims
We handle several types of bus accident claims, including:
- School Bus Accidents
Thousands of Tennessee children take buses to and from school every day. But the distractions drivers face on school buses can sometimes lead to serious accidents. If your child was injured in an accident that was the bus driver’s or the bus owner’s fault, we can hold the school district liable for your child’s medical expenses.
- Public Transportation Accidents
Many adults take buses to their jobs or to run errands. But like school buses, many of these public transportation vehicles often lack safety features—such as seat belts and airbags—and accidents can cause passengers to suffer major injuries. We can file a claim against the state government or municipality if you are injured on a city bus.
- Charter Bus Accidents
Church groups and travel companies often use charter buses to take large groups of people on trips. Charter buses often travel on interstates, and crashes may occur at high speeds. At Ponce Law, we can hold charter bus companies responsible for your accident-related expenses.
Proving negligence and responsibility in bus accidents can be difficult because of the number of parties that may be involved—and insurance companies may be reluctant to pay settlements to the accident victims. The bus accident lawyers at Ponce Law are skilled negotiators, and we’ll deal with the insurance company to get you the money you’re owed for your medical bills.
