Legal Assistance and Support for People Injured in Bus Accidents in Missouri
Help for Missouri Bus Accident Victims
If you have been injured in a Missouri bus accident — whether by a school bus, a city bus, or a commercial bus — and you are seeking legal assistance, the Missouri bus accident attorneys at Aaron Sachs and Associates may be able to help.
Bus accidents can be among the worst kind of motor vehicle accidents. Injuries from bus accidents are often very serious because of the size and weight of the bus in comparison to the vehicle they hit. If the bus hits a motorcycle, bicycle or pedestrian, the accident is usually catastrophic, and may result in permanent disability or even death.
Because buses are usually owned by large companies, municipalities, cities, counties or school districts, often a sophisticated team of insurance adjusters or lawyers will quickly begin working against you even if the accident was not your fault. We hope you will talk to a Missouri bus accident lawyer before you talk to any representative from the bus company and before you sign or agree to anything!
Protect Your Rights
If you or someone you love has been injured in a Missouri bus accident and the accident was not your fault, you may have certain rights to recover compensation for injuries, property damage, missed work, medical bills and disability. But bus companies or their insurance adjusters or attorneys may try to get you to waive (give up) those rights so they can save money. Please keep in mind that neither the owner of the bus, the driver of the bus nor any insurance adjuster has your best interests at heart. Therefore, it is very important that, in the event of a bus accident, your interests are represented and your rights are protected.
Bus Accidents Can Be Complicated Cases
Bus accident claims can be more complicated than car accident cases. First of all, there are often multiple parties involved such as bus driver, the bus owner and/or a separate company that might be leasing the bus. If the accident involved a city bus or a school bus, there are even more complications and a large organization with multiple departments involved. If the accident was with a commercial bus or a tour bus, then you're usually facing a big company with sophisticated lawyers and a team of insurance adjusters whose sole purpose is to save the company money.
The other reason that Missouri bus accident cases can be complicated is that often serious injuries are involved when a bus hits a car, motorcycle, bicycle or pedestrian. The accident may result in ongoing medical bills, extended periods of missed work, long-term disability and sometimes death. This is why it is very important when interviewing an attorney to represent you that you ask if they are familiar with Missouri bus accident claims not just car accidents!
