Pursuing Compensation After a Bus Crash

Our Bay Area bus accident lawyers represent victims of a variety of accidents, such as those involving:

  • Muni or city buses
  • Charter buses
  • Party buses
  • School buses
  • Tour buses
  • Greyhound, Amtrak, and other travel buses

For any bus accident case, the victim will need to prove that another party’s negligence led to the crash. They must also show that their injuries and damages were a direct result of the accident.

Negligence in bus accident cases often includes:

  • Driving while drowsy
  • Drunk or impaired driving
  • Distracted driving
  • Transporting too many passengers
  • Speeding or other types of reckless driving
  • Driving a bus with defective parts/in poor maintenance

Baum Hedlund accident lawyers know how to investigate, identify, and prove negligence stemming from bus crashes. We have done it successfully for decades.

How an SF Bus Accident Attorney Can Help You

There are many benefits to working with a legal professional. For example, a bus accident attorney may:

  • Protect you from lowball bus accident settlement offers: Baum Hedlund helps clients calculate their financial losses. Understanding the value of your legal case will protect you from insurance companies who sometimes offer lowball settlement agreements to limit liability.
  • Protect you from being blamed for the accident: Sadly, it is common for negligent parties to try to blame the accident on the victim. An attorney can fight back against such attempts, protecting you from being cheated out of compensation.
  • Identify and prove negligence: Baum Hedlund attorneys are known for uncovering evidence of negligence, often through accident reconstruction, research, and collaboration with experts and witnesses. From there, we will prepare for trial and mount the strongest case possible for you and your family.
  • Work within legal dates and deadlines: There are deadlines to meet when taking legal action, the most important of which is the statute of limitations. This is the law that dictates how long you have to file a lawsuit. If a city bus, like Muni, is involved, the statute of limitations may only allow you to file a claim within a short amount of time. Other cases give plaintiffs 2 years to act. Whatever deadlines apply to your case, our attorneys will work to ensure you meet them.
