Iowa Bus Accident Lawyer

A bus accident typically has different layers of legal responsibility to investigate than a car accident does. The bus driver, the bus driver hiring and training entity, the company owning and operating the bus, the bus dispatching service, inspectors and repair facilities are all potential sources of information about what went wrong and why. An astute personal injury attorney representing someone injured in a bus accident will take the time and care necessary to get to the bottom of the liability chain in pursuit of the financial resources needed to deal with a brain injury, spinal cord injury, broken bones or burn injury.

When it comes to operating a bus or driving in proximity to a bus, safety should always come first. Galligan Reid PC seeks to take the lead in promoting safety and preventing accidents whenever we have the opportunity to share what we have learned in our personal injury law practice. Chances are, however, that you have arrived at this website after a bus accident has already occurred.

City Bus or Greyhound? Passenger, Pedestrian or Motorist?

You or your loved one may have been struck by or collided with a city bus such as Des Moines Area Regional Transit (DART), a Greyhound bus, a school bus, a charter bus or a gambling casino motor coach. The injured person may have been a pedestrian, a bus passenger or a motorist in another car or truck. Whatever the precise circumstances of the bus accident, you want to do business with an attorney who will be diligent in pursuit of maximum compensation for your injuries and losses.

As you come to grips with the life-changing nature of a serious injury or fatality in your family, you are right to seek legal counsel sooner rather than later. It is in your best interests after suffering a serious injury to consult with an experienced Iowa bus accident attorney before answering questions from an investigator or discussing the case with a claims representative from the bus company or even your own insurance company. Remember that an insurance company's No. 1 concern is to prevent paying out more than it has to.

You need an advocate on your side who will fight for your right to fair compensation — although no amount of money will bring back the way of life that you enjoyed before suffering a serious injury. You owe it to yourself and your family to seek the most ample compensation possible after a school bus crash.
