Hurt in a Bus Accident? Contact Our Firm for the Compensation You Deserve

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! Whether you or a loved one were a passenger on a city-owned bus or a private bus, church bus or other type of bus, we offer our services and assistance. Contact our firm today to find out more.

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
  • Speeding
  • Drunk driving
  • Distracted driving
  • Malfunctioning traffic lights
  • Incorrectly graded roads

Whether you were injured in a school bus, city bus, private bus or in an accident with another other type of bus, our firm can evaluate your situation and advise you how to move forward to pursue fair compensation. At the Law Office of James R. Snell, Jr., LLC, we help bus accident victims recover the maximum compensation available.
