What injuries are commonly caused by bus accidents?
Bus accident injuries may include whiplash, head trauma, spinal cord injuries, broken bones, airbag injuries, internal organ damage, loss of limb, burn injuries, brain injuries, and other serious trauma. The type and severity of these injuries may vary depending on whether a victim was a bus passenger or was an occupant of another vehicle, and whether he or she was wearing a seatbelt at the time of the collision.
What should I do if I’m involved in a bus accident?
There are a few key steps to take if you’ve been involved in a bus accident:
- Seek medical attention.
- Gather information and take pictures at the scene, if possible.
- Get the contact information of all involved parties.
- Document your medical treatment.
- Talk to an attorney about your right to compensation.
I feel fine. Do I really need to see a doctor?
Even if you do not feel that you are seriously injured, it is important to seek medical attention after any type of traffic collision. Whiplash, head trauma, and other injuries may not become apparent for hours or days after an accident. Seek medical attention and tell your doctor that you were involved in a bus accident so he or she knows what type of injury to look for.
How can I know if a settlement offer is fair?
Only a complete review of your claim will reveal whether a settlement offer is fair. It should take into account all medical expenses, ongoing medical treatment, lost earnings, loss of future earnings, property damage, and also emotional trauma. Your lawyer can review any settlement offers to determine whether they are truly fair.
