During bus accident
If you have been involved in a bus accident, the first thing you need to do is get immediate medical attention. Typically the bus staff should be responsible for calling for assistance, or if these individuals are injured or killed, and should not refuse to contact emergency services, and call 911. Besides providing a need for medical attention, the accident needs to be reported to law enforcement so that a police report is generated documenting the details of the accident.
Many states require accident victims to seek medical attention within a limited period of time or their claims are barred. If you have been in a bus accident, get checked out by a doctor, even if your injuries are not that much severe. In most cases, the bus company will deal with the expense of your medical visit. We help you to take tests for the back, spine, and head injuries. If you are able, instantly document what you remember at the accident scene. Get the names, phone numbers, addresses, or even e-mail addresses of other passengers involved in the accident.
After bus accidents
After the bus accident, you can consult qualified attorney for raising legal claims on the accidents. Your attorney contacts the people to investigate the accident claim. The bus company provides the names of other passengers, to gather information for witnesses on the scene. You should take photographs of the scene in several angles if you can.
Bus companies have unique insurance that is more comprehensive than standard automobile insurance since it covers all of the passengers.
