Have you or a child been injured in a bus accident? These are often catastrophic events that make headlines, but what about the damage done to families and individuals involved? Your first step should be to work with one of our Hartford personal injury attorneys from Carlson & Dumeer, LLC. We can be the strength you need during this difficult time and the place to turn for trusted guidance.
After a bus accident, it will be difficult to know what was at fault and who should be held liable for the injuries suffered. Our firm can work with you to assess the damage and determine the cause of the crash. We can use our network of professionals and experts to assess your case and help you know what need to be done. From there, we can aggressively pursue the best avenue for just compensation.
We believe that every case is different and will need to be approached in a unique way. Although we always apply our core principles to each case – 24 / 7 availability, tenacious representation, devotion to clients – we focus on the differences of each case to sculpt the appropriate course of action.
Whether the crash involved a school bus or commuter bus, serious injuries can occur. Any other motorists involved in the bus accident can suffer the most catastrophic of injuries, however. In such cases, much of the aftermath is not revealed until later on when injuries rise to the surface. When the occupants of a bus are injured, the passengers can suffer all types of injuries, ranging from bruises to serious head or neck injuries.
You will need to file a claim for compensation following the bus accident. This can be a complex and lengthy process, but our legal team can stay by your side throughout the process. You will first need to know the cause of the accident to know who to hold liable. You can file a claim for the negligence of one of the employees or the company as a whole.
