Columbia, SC Bus Accident Lawyer
Seeking the Compensation You Deserve After a Bus Accident
If you have been involved in a bus accident, the range of injuries you
can suffer are extensive. As South Carolina is an at-fault state, the
party or parties at fault are responsible for providing compensation for
injuries. This requires a thorough investigation into the cause of the
accident. A Columbia bus accident lawyer from the Law Office of James
R. Snell, Jr., LLC can ensure that a thorough investigation is carried
out and we can pursue recovery from the at-fault party!

Pursue Fair & Just Compensation by Filing a Claim
As buses are larger and far heavier than passenger vehicles or pickups,
the forces of the impact are greater, and a bus accident commonly results
in many injured passengers, as they are thrown around the cabin at impact.
Buses are not currently required to have seatbelts or other restraints,
adding to the potential for serious or fatal injuries, particularly in
a rollover or side collision.
Assistance with the Insurance Company
Insurance companies often try to settle the case quickly and will contact
the victims early on in the process. It is advised that you do not consent
to an interview or allow access to your medical records without speaking
to a member of our legal team first. You deserve to be compensated fairly
and we can do whatever is in our legal power to fight for your rights.
If you or a loved one has been injured, you should not sign any settlement
papers until you consult with a Columbia bus accident attorney.
The most common causes of bus accidents include:
- Driver error
- Unsafe lane changes
- Drunk driving
- Distracted driving
- Malfunctioning traffic lights
- Incorrectly graded roads

accident with another other type of bus, our firm can evaluate your situation
