A Seattle bus accident attorney from The Fang Law Firm can help if your child was injured in a bus crash.
When you send your child off to school, you typically don’t think about an accident happening on the bus. Bus accidents can happen and they do. When bus accidents occur the injuries are typically catastrophic. Your child may be facing a lifetime of recovery for the injuries caused in the school bus accident. Medical bills and rehabilitation bills will start to pile up and you shouldn’t have to worry about paying the bills while your child is recovering.
In order to recover financially, a lawsuit must be brought against the at-fault person. If the bus driver is at-fault for the accident then the following people can be liable:
If the bus driver is not at-fault, a Seattle bus accident lawyer can help you recover from:
Bus or bus parts manufacturers. In the event that the accident was due to a faulty bus or faulty party, a Seattle bus accident lawyer can assist you in filing a products liability or negligence action against the manufacturer.
RCW 46.61.370 outlines the requirements of motor vehicle drivers when approaching a school bus.
If you break any of these laws, you may be subjected to a hefty fine.
No matter who is at-fault, the first step is filing a claim against the at-fault party’s insurance company. The insurance company will do everything they can to prevent you from receiving a settlement you deserve. A Seattle personal injury lawyer can help you through the claims process and maximize your settlement offer.
If the insurance company does not settle, denies your claim, or settles for an amount that is less than your child’s medical bills a Seattle school bus accident attorney can help you file a personal injury or tort action against the at-fault person.
If the judge and jury rule in your favor, they will hand down a damage award that requires the at-fault party to pay you the damage amount determined by the court.
