Proven Record of Success in Bus Accident Cases

Bus accident lawsuits are much more complex than a typical auto accident lawsuit. Not only are there often multiple injured parties and serious injuries, there are usually multiple responsible parties as well. Government entities, such as public schools or transportation departments may also be involved, meaning that different procedures and different time limits may apply when filing a personal injury lawsuit.
