Riding the bus has its ups and downs, but getting caught in the middle of a crash involving a bus can have lifelong consequences for everyone involved. Getting compensated for these injuries is a complicated process, however, and the first step toward full compensation is speaking with a Long Island bus accident lawyer from Siler & Ingber, LLP. Our team can help you build a compelling case that ends with justice and comprehensive compensation.
Bus accidents typically involve public transportation buses, but you could also have been injured in a wreck with a school or private bus. These specifics can greatly affect who the at-fault parties might be and how your claim needs to be handled.
For example, if your crash involved a city or school bus, then it’s likely that a government entity will be at least partially at fault. This means that there will be additional steps to take when filing your personal injury claim and special time restrictions. Specifically, there is a ninety-day time limit for filing notice of your injury claim against the government.
If the government then denies your claim, you can move on to filing a normal personal injury claim to seek damages in court. Your Long Island bus accident lawyer will make certain that every step of your claim is handled correctly and in a timely manner.
If you have been injured in an accident with any type of bus, you deserve an attorney who is willing to fight for your full compensation. You need to speak with a Long Island bus accident lawyer from Siler & Ingber, LLP so that we can help you build a rock-solid case that will hold the negligent parties accountable.
