Investigation of Bus Accidents
Whether you are a passenger on a bus involved in an accident or an occupant of another vehicle that is involved in an accident with a bus, a good investigation is critical. When bus drivers are involved in an accident, they know exactly what to do because they have been repeatedly trained on it by the bus company. One of the first things bus drivers are instructed to do after a bus accident is report the wreck to dispatch or company management. As soon as the company gets the call that one of their buses has been involved in an accident, they immediately send out their team of local investigators. If the wreck is serious enough, they will even fly experts and lawyers to the scene on the same day as the wreck. Oftentimes, these investigators, experts and lawyers are at the scene of the accident, taking photos, talking to witnesses and gathering critical evidence while you or your loved one is still at the emergency room.
If you are seriously injured in the wreck, you could easily be in the hospital for weeks recovering from your injuries. During this time, the bus company has continued to gather evidence and mount its defense in hopes of not paying you a dime for your losses. By the time you are finally discharged from the hospital, the bus company has finished its investigation and you have not even started. In fact, you do not even know when you will start because you may still have months of therapy scheduled, you may still be in pain and tired and you can barely get through your day-to-day activities. And, as soon as you recover from your injuries, you need to get back to work. Even worse yet, by the time you are physically able to investigate the crash, crucial physical evidence like skid marks and yaw marks, which are used by experts to reconstruct the accident, are now gone and lost forever.
