Our Law Firm Brings Justice to Injury Victims
Bus accidents, like truck accidents, often result in serious injuries to many different people. Such accidents can involve school buses carrying young children close to home or private charter buses traveling highways like I-95 or I-270. Or they could involve people riding on Montgomery County Department of Transportation (MCDOT) buses in Rockville, Silver Spring, Bethesda, D.C., Northern Virginia or another nearby community.
Knowing what to do after a bus accident can be confusing. In many cases, injury victims might not know if they can take legal action to obtain the compensation they deserve. Since some of these buses are operated by local or regional government organizations, some people might think that these organizations are protected from legal action under state or federal laws.
But the reality is you can - and should - pursue compensation after your bus accident. However, you must know that if the bus is a government operated bus, there are certain notice requirements to state, county or city that have to be met quickly regarding the accident, and if missed, will bar your claim forever. Expenses associated with bus accidents can add up fast. And if you don't demand full compensation, you might end up having to pay for your bus accident out of your own pocket.
Why Do Bus Accidents Happen?
Bus accidents happen for many different reasons. Common causes of bus accidents include:
- Distracted bus drivers
- Speeding bus drivers
- Inexperienced drivers
- Poorly maintained buses
- Defective bus parts
Whatever the cause of your bus accident, make sure you take action to pursue the compensation you deserve. Make sure you contact an experienced Rockville bus accident lawyer at the Law Offices of Stuart L. Plotnick, LLC.
