Private Bus Accidents Attorneys

Bus Accident Lawyers

Private buses, like those that shuttle passengers to and from the airport, can charge relatively high fees for their use and should afford their passengers a guaranteed right to safe travel. Most of the drivers of these buses are safe drivers. The companies selling this service are expected to keep their buses in optimal working order and ensure their drivers’ training is appropriate and up-to-date.

Accidents involving private buses are rare, but they do happen and because of the approach society takes to large vehicles like buses – which allows riders to go without seatbelts – these accidents may be catastrophic. The North Carolina and South Carolina personal injury attorneys at Grimes Teich Anderson are experienced in handling these types of cases. Common carrier rules often apply to private buses in the same way that they apply to public transit, which means that every precaution must be taken by the operator and the private busing service in all cases. Unless they are completely without fault, these parties are generally responsible for the injuries of those paying for their service in the case of an accident. Other at-fault parties may also be required to help cover medical costs of these victims and others harmed by their accident.

The insurance companies representing private busing services and other auto operators who may be responsible for private bus patrons’ injuries in an accident situation may be hesitant to cover the costs victims incur in these accidents. The many variables involved in an accident like this can make the situation complex, and this gives insurance adjustors the opportunity to identify loopholes and gaps in story and situation which could jeopardize accident victims’ claims. Large vehicles often have more detrimental accidents than standard automobiles, too.

What You Need to Know

Laws in North Carolina and South Carolina may differ but, in general, they require that at-fault parties pay for the injuries of accident victims. If you or someone you love was injured or died in an accident involving a private common carrier group, like an airport shuttle service, you may be entitled to significant compensation which covers the cost of medical care and other accident-related expense.

Your claim may face complications, and may even be outright denied if you attempt to go toe to toe with the insurance company alone. They will know the system well, and their job is to protect their clients. The experienced lawyers at Grimes Teich Anderson LLP knows the system, too and can help ensure you get the maximum value on your claim regardless of the evasion tactics employed by the insurance company. Our only job to protect your interests. We never represent insurance companies.
