Injured in a bus accident? We may be able to help
Posted on behalf of Mark F. Griffin of D'Amico & Pettinicchi, LLC on Apr 08, 2015 in Car Accidents
Buses are just one of many types of vehicles that are on roads throughout the state of Connecticut each day. Buses of different types transport individuals of all ages to places such as work and school. Because of the many people that may be on board at any given time, if a bus is involved in a crash the outcome can be devastating.
The injuries those involved suffer can range from minor to serious. In the very worst situations passengers will even die. The injuries are not necessarily limited to the occupants of the bus. It is possible that drivers and passengers in other vehicles involved in the incident could be injured as well.
When a bus is involved in a crash that results in someone involved suffering an injury, they may be able to take legal action against the business, individual or government entity that runs the bus. These common carriers are highly regulated at both the state and federal level. If there is negligence on the part of any of these entities or those who work for them a personal injury lawsuit could be appropriate.
Our Connecticut injury lawyers handle this type of case and when someone comes to us they can expect that we will prepare your case for trial from the start. This is accomplished via a variety of things including a thorough investigation into whether negligence was to blame for the accident. In some cases this level of preparation will actually lead to a resolution outside of court that provides a fair settlement.
