In Massachusetts, victims of accidents involving a bus or other commercial carrier can suffer serious injuries, can incur significant medical expenses and can lose substantial income resulting from those injuries. Any time you have been the victim of an accident involving a bus or commercial carrier, you should consult with an experienced attorney who can help assist you in recovering fair compensation under the circumstances.
An experienced personal injury lawyer will know where to look for payment of related medical expenses, reimbursement for lost wages, and reimbursement for out of pocket expenses such as patient co-payments, rental vehicles, and towing and/or storage charges resulting from the accident.
Even if the at fault driver and/or carrier does not have adequate insurance to cover your injuries, an experienced personal injury attorney will know where to look for additional coverage and/or compensation for your serious injuries.
In many cases involving a commercial carrier, liability for the at-fault driver’s conduct may extend to his employer and/or owner of the vehicle. An experienced personal injury lawyer will investigate whether such a circumstance exists and whether the employer is individually negligent for entrusting the driver with the vehicle/bus.
Personal injury claims relating to commercial carriers are not limited to collisions with other motor vehicle and/or negligent operation of the bus itself. What many victims do not realize is that they may be entitled to recover for injuries occurring while entering or exiting the bus. Moreover, common carriers are subject to a high standard of care to ensure the safety and well being of their passengers.
