Bus accident claims can be much more difficult than your average motor vehicle accident claim for two reasons: complicated liability and significant damages. Luckily, you don’t need to worry about piecing together your claim or lawsuit on your own, not when Klein Frank, P.C. and our Boulder bus accident lawyers are here. We take pride in being able to represent people in need and fight tenaciously in their names. There is no rushing perfection, which is why we put as much time as needed into your claim to reach the absolute best possible outcome.
Who is Liable in a Bus Accident?
The question of liability in a bus accident claim can get convoluted if other vehicles are involved. Was it the bus driver who caused the crash? Or was it another motorist who was breaking the rules of the road? Whether you were a bus passenger or a motorist, sorting out these details can be frustrating.
Thanks to our extensive legal backgrounds – Attorneys Beth Klein and Carrie Frank have more than 60 years of legal experience combined – we know how to conduct a careful investigation into bus accidents of all sorts. While you sit back and focus on recovering, we can dig into the details and determine liability. Depending on the bus involved, we could be looking at a lawsuit filed against a bus company, a municipal entity like the City of Boulder, or both.
Severe Injuries Caused by Bus Accidents
Bus accidents are often associated with severe, life-changing injuries. The massive size and weight of a bus can destroy smaller vehicles at most speeds, so it is natural for catastrophic injuries to follow.
Some of the worst injuries that might be suffered in a bus accident are:
If a bus accident ends someone’s life, then surviving loved ones can file a wrongful death claim. Our law firm is capable of handling wrongful death claims with a blend of professionalism and sensitivity. We know you are going through so much after losing a loved one, so we want to ensure your comfort while your claim progresses.
Steep Damages Call for Serious Representation
Along with significant injuries, bus accidents are also associated with significant damages. Usually, injury claimants will need greater sums of compensation when their injuries are severe. Our Boulder bus accident lawyers know this, but so do opposing insurance companies. They will hate the idea of paying you a sizeable settlement or verdict amount for your catastrophic injuries, so they will fight at every turn.
As your chosen attorneys, part of our job will be making sure that the insurance company has a difficult time challenging your claim. We will also spend ample time to carefully and accurately calculate your damages. Your case shouldn’t conclude until you are given the maximum amount of compensation possible given the circumstances.
Damages to list in your bus accident claim could include:
- Medical bills
- Cost of future medical care
- Lost wages and lessened income
- Pain and suffering
- Lowered enjoyment of life
- Permanent disability
