About Bus Accidents

I've been hurt in a bus accident, what do I do?

Being struck by a massive bus can result in serious and lasting personal injuries. Likewise, being inside a bus during a crash can cause serious and traumatizing injuries. Without experienced attorneys on your side, it can be extremely difficult to to recover after such an accident.

​Alford & Clark knows how to handle bus accident cases. Our bus accident attorneys are well versed in the laws that govern bus operation and have experience going toe to toe with some of the largest bus companies in the country. Don’t trust your case to a regular car wreck attorney who will treat your case like a run-of-the-mill car accident. Hire a law firm that knows the difference and will make the difference in your case.

Commercial buses are required to carry large insurance policies. The insurance companies behind these policies have a lot to lose. As a result, the insurance adjusters who handle bus accidents are some of the most experienced adjusters in the company, and they will use every trick in the book to minimize your claim or to deny it outright. Municipal bus lines, on the other hand, are backed by government dollars, which are shielded by complicated laws and protected by complex, bureaucratic schemes. When you take on an experienced adjuster or city hall, you need to make them take you seriously. You need Alford & Clark in your corner.

Alford & Clark is a full-service firm that prides itself on client satisfaction. When you hire us, we take care of all the headaches of dealing with your bus accident – both big and small. If you were injured as a passenger, we will help you get the medical care you need and help get you the compensation you deserve. If your car was hit by a bus, we will also help you get your car fixed and help you get a rental car.

Call us now for a free, confidential consultation. Our bus accident lawyers are on call – 24/7 – and are happy to answer any questions absolutely free of charge. If you decide to hire us, you will never pay us out of your own pocket and we will never take a percentage of the money you get to repair or replace your car. That’s because – unlike some other law firms – our attorney fee is only a percentage of case winnings from the injury side of your case. Best of all, there is zero risk to you. If we don’t win, no matter how much we spent fighting on your behalf, you will never owe us a dime. ​We only get paid when we win your case.

Legal Assistance for Bus Accidents

According to the latest statistics from the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA):
3,978 large trucks and buses were involved in fatal crashes in 2014
From 2009 to 2013, the number of fatal crashes involving large trucks or buses increased by 20 percent
From 2013 to 2014, the number of large trucks involved in injury crashes increased by 21 percent, from 73,000 to 88,000, and the large truck involvement rate in injury crashes increased by 21 percent
From 2013 to 2014, Vehicle miles traveled (VMT) by large trucks increased by 1.5 percent, and bus VMT increased by 5.5 percent
In 2014, the three most common crash-causing factor for large truck drivers were (1) speeding, (2) distracted driving, and (3) impairment from fatigue, alcohol, or illness
These statistics show that companies are pushing their drivers to spend more and more time on the road. As the economy improves, companies may be cutting corners in efforts to grow their business and maximize profits at the expense of public safety. With companies pushing their drivers harder than ever, collisions with passenger vehicles will occur, and when they do – the results can be devastating.
