Why choose a lawyer from our firm?
After your bus accident you may be disoriented or confused, but it’s important to know what steps to follow to keep yourself safe and to build your case when the time comes.
The very first thing to do is call 911 and report the accident. This will start the process of getting everything documented so that fault can be determined and the liable party can be held accountable. You may even choose to contact the owner of the bus if possible to report the accident to them as well.
The next step is to document everything you can about the scene, the conditions that caused the accident, the parties involved and any other details you can gather. This may be difficult at first, but the more information you gather, the more it will bolster your case. Witness statements are a crucial piece of evidence if you can obtain them.
Afterwards, if you haven’t already sought medical attention, it is important to do so as soon as possible. Visiting the ER or a family physician will help you document your injuries and know the extent of the harm you have suffered. It is important to note that injuries and symptoms may not show up right away so it is a good idea to check in with your doctor regularly, particularly if new symptoms arise. This information will be helpful to present to a bus accident attorney so they can help with your case.
Don’t talk to anyone about your case until you retain legal counsel. You will likely be approached by the insurance company with an offer, do not accept this. Instead, talk with one of our attorneys at The Law Offices of John Phebus to see what your case is actually worth.
