We seek full and fair compensation from negligent bus drivers and their companies

In 2014, the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration reported 12,000 bus crashes nationwide and 23,000 people injured as a result. Accidents involving school buses accounted for 40 percent of the accidents, while transit buses accounted for 31 percent of fatal crashes.

Investigating a bus accident properly requires meticulous attention to detail and experience. Bus accident cases can be complex. School bus crashes may involve government entities with special immunities and time limitations to file claims. Private bus collisions may involve national or international companies. The seasoned personal attorneys at Bohn & Fletcher handle cases pertaining to bus accident injuries. These range from school buses, city buses and commuter buses, to tour buses and private coaches. No matter where the accident has occurred, whether on Highway 101 or on a municipality’s main street, we give each case the attention it deserves.

When needed, we retain experts who lend their specialized opinion to the case. These include accident reconstructionists, safety engineers, medical practitioners, and forensics professionals. We seek to determine exactly how and why the accident occurred. There may be causes that are not readily apparent until we investigate. We also know we need to act quickly, because bus companies and their insurance companies may seek to obscure evidence that could support thief liability.

We care about our communities and want to ensure children and adults who ride buses are safe in their journeys. But when accidents happen, we hold negligent parties accountable for their actions. We always seek full and fair compensation for accident victims. Such compensation includes recovery for past and future medical expenses, loss of past and future income, property damage, as well as physical and emotional pain and suffering.

A variety of injuries may result from bus crashes

Injuries sustained through bus collisions can have serious or even catastrophic consequences. They may include the following:

  • Fractures
  • Skin abrasions
  • Scarring
  • Burns
  • Sprains
  • Soft tissue and internal injuries
  • Head, back, and neck injuries
  • Traumatic brain injuries
  • Spinal cord injuries and paralysis
  • Death
