Have You Been Injured In A Bus Accident?
Austin is the 21st most congested city in the United States and one of the busiest cities in the Texas, with many hundreds of thousands of people taking to the roads every day. Many commuters rely upon buses as an effective and inexpensive means of travel. Our children also travel in school buses quite frequently, for sporting events, school trips and to go to and from home and school.
Because of the heavy traffic throughout Austin, bus passengers as well as other motorists, pedestrians and bicyclists may be at risk of being involved in a bus accident at some point. The majority of these accidents are caused by negligence on the part of the bus driver or another motorist.
After being involved in a bus accident, a victim may be able to take legal action against the bus driver, bus company or whatever other person or party may have been responsible for causing the accident.
Bus accident claims are covered under Texas personal injury law, which allows a person who has suffered physical and/or emotional injury because of another’s negligence or wrongdoing to hold the responsible party liable in civil court. Upon winning a case in this manner, the victim would be able to recover financial damages for the injury he or she suffered.
This may allow a bus accident victim to obtain money to help with medical care, any lost wages, and possibly much more. A personal injury lawyer at Flores & Valentine, P.C. may be able to help you if you or someone you know was recently injured in a bus accident.
