Were you or someone you love recently in an accident involving a bus and wondering if you might have a case? Belal Hamideh, a bus accident lawyer in Southern California, has helped many who were injured in vehicular accidents. While bus accidents share many similarities with other kinds of vehicular accident cases, there are important differences as well. If there’s any possibility that you were hurt in an accident with a bus, reach out for a free case evaluation.
Any Kind of Bus Accident Could Be a Case
Some are under the assumption that, to have a bus accident case, they need to have been involved with a several-car pileup while on a Greyhound bus. That’s not the case. Really, to have a case, you just need to have been injured in an accident involving a bus that was caused by the negligence and/or recklessness of another party. So, you could have a case if you were hurt on a California Transit bus, a school bus, a tour bus, even a private bus, a hotel shuttle, a rental car shuttle, or anything else.
Damages for Your Accident
Your accident doesn’t need to have been a serious crash for you to have been injured by it. For example, many bus accidents come not necessarily from a bus careening wildly into a building, but rather, from a “fender bender,” or a bus driver having to slam on the brakes, which could give you (as well as other passengers) whiplash. That can lead to serious injuries even if none are visible at the moment. If you have been hurt in any way in a bus accident, it’s worth it to reach out for medical attention just to make sure.
You Don’t Have Forever to File
Unfortunately, in so many ways, a bus accident can be a life-changing event. As such, it’s natural to want to take your time to rest, to recuperate, and so forth. That is the right thing to do when it comes to your health, but not the best course of action when it comes to reaching out to an attorney. You have two years from the time of the accident to file a lawsuit. That period of time shortens dramatically depending on which parties may be at fault (such as if they’re a public entity, and so forth).
