Hurt In A Bus Accident?

The word "bus" is a general term that can refer to a city bus, a school bus, an interstate bus (like Greyhound), a private chartered bus or an airport shuttle. In all cases, a bus is heavier than most cars, large enough to carry many passengers. Bus accidents and injuries take many forms, including:

  • Pedestrians struck by buses
  • Bus passengers injured while boarding or exiting buses
  • Bus passengers injured inside a moving bus
  • Bicyclists, motorcyclists and occupants of automobiles injured in collisions with buses

Whatever the circumstances of your bus accident, you may have arrived at this Web page looking for help as you face consequences such as medical bills, lost wages and pain and suffering. We are here to help.

You have come to the right place if you were injured in, or in proximity to, a bus in or near Bridgeport. Contact an experienced personal injury lawyer at the Law Offices of James L. O'Rourke to schedule a free initial consultation. Our well-established Connecticut personal injury law firm has recovered millions of dollars for injured clients.

A pedestrian or bicyclist typically does not stand much of a chance in an encounter with a bus. Occupants of cars that collide with buses often suffer serious injuries. Back and neck injuries, shoulder injuries, crush injuries and amputations are not uncommon in bus accident cases. Other bus accident victims may be luckier but typically suffer broken bones and other serious injuries requiring extensive treatment.

Our plaintiffs' attorneys have an in-depth understanding of insurance coverage, claims and challenges that bus accident victims must deal with. We can help you recover all compensation you are eligible for.

Free Case Evaluation From An Experienced Lawyer

Beware any quick settlement offer from a bus company representative or an insurance claims adjuster. In our experience, a quick offer usually means a lowball offer that is insufficient to cover a bus accident victim's real losses.

Before you accept any offer, talk to a lawyer from the Law Offices of James L. O'Rourke to discuss your rights. We will help you pursue the maximum possible compensation for your losses. To schedule a free consultation, contact us online or call 203-864-4427.
