Making a personal injury claim after a tour bus accident

Taking a tour bus is a great way to see a new or familiar city. These tour buses should be accessible for those with disabilities, making it possible for everyone to have a safe and entertaining journey. However, not all tour bus journeys end happily. Bus accidents are surprisingly common, and they can sometimes lead to serious injuries or even death.

If you or a loved one has been involved in an accident when riding on a tour bus, you may be entitled to damages for the medical bills, additional expenses, and for the pain and suffering caused. Therefore, it is important that you understand your legal rights so that you get the compensation that you are entitled to.

Understanding liability

You can hold another party liable for the injuries that occurred as a result of the bus injury if you can show that their negligence caused your accident. To do this you will need to show that the party in question owed you a duty and that they failed in this duty. You will also need to show that this failure to meet their duties toward you directly led to your injuries and suffering.

You may be able to hold the bus company liable if the bus itself was not safe or if the bus driver acted negligently and caused a crash as a result. Alternatively, you may be able to hold the tour company liable for negligently hiring a bus company that did not meet adequate safety standards.

Understanding damages

If you are successful in making a personal injury claim, you'll be able to claim compensation for all medical bills that you have already paid. You may also be able to settle on an amount that will cover expected medical bills in the future. You'll also be able to gain punitive damages for the pain and suffering that the accident caused you.

Make sure that you take swift action to consider a personal injury claim if you have recently been involved in a bus accident.
