What are the differences between bus accident claims and car accident claims?
Recently a client came to see me about an injury claim involving a bus and wanted to know what the difference is between a bus injury claim and a regular car crash claim in Virginia. Bus accidents are much like commercial trucking accidents in that the driver has to be thoroughly trained, properly licensed, and have extra regulations to abide by compared to regular drivers in automobile cases.It’s fair to say that bus collision cases are far more complex to investigate than an ordinary automobile crash. The second thing that tends to occur in bus accidents that make them extraordinary is that when a bus crash occurs, there are far more claims from many passengers compared to the ordinary private automobile case. As a result, the evaluation of injuries and the allocation of how much money from the bus insurance policy will be paid to each claimant becomes far more complicated. In those cases, it’s extremely important to get a properly experienced bus accident attorney in Virginia on your case as early as possible so that you get the maximum benefits under what may be a very limited recovery from the bus insurance policy.
