Choosing a Bus Accident Attorney
When you were injured in a crash, choosing a bus accident attorney can make or break your settlement. Watch this video and call for a free consultation.
Initially, when you’re talking to an attorney regarding a bus accident claim, you should ask that attorney if they truly understand all of the idiosyncrasies associated with that type of claim. The no-fault law, with respect to bus accident cases, is very different. The other thing that’s extremely important is regarding the ability of a bus company to take statements in your case and many attorneys don’t understand the importance of these statements.
The NFTA would reach out to you immediately. Under our laws, they are entitled to a written statement prior to you commencing a claim. Those statements are typically done in a written format, where someone from the NFTA visits you and writes down responses to questions that they ask you. Those questions are tailored to assist the bus company, and the answers that you are providing to the individual are then written in an attempt to make it most helpful to the bus company. Your attorney needs to understand this. Your attorney needs to know that before anything gets signed, it has to be reviewed by the attorney extremely carefully because that document becomes one of the most important documents going forward.
To sum up, you need someone who’s done this before, who’s been involved in bus accident cases, and who understands how to handle the insurance company. To make sure that, from a no-fault standpoint, you have all of your injuries looked at and we know exactly what’s wrong with you before the case is resolved.
