Question:

What should I do after a bus accident?

Answer:

People often ask me, “What are the mistakes that are often made in pursuing a bus accident claim in Virginia?” Bus accident claims have a variety of special requirements because buses are often operated by government entities. As a result, it’s very important that you seek legal counsel immediately in order to avoid failing to notify the state or county that operates the bus system of your claim in writing promptly enough. Some of those time limits can be as short as six months following the date of your crash.Mistakes to Avoid After a Bus AccidentGetting proper counsel to write that notice and write it correctly according to all of the technicalities in the statute of notification is extremely important. Other mistakes that we often see are not filing a claim with the bus operator quickly enough so that they have a record of your involvement in an accident on their bus and are on notice to preserve evidence about your case. Other problems that we often see or mistakes that are made are that people do not seek counsel quickly enough to muster all the evidence involved in how the crash occurred because bus crushes like any other crash is dependent on proving someone was negligent or legally at fault to cause the accident. For all of those reasons, it’s very important for you to avoid those mistakes by retaining counsel quickly.
