    When someone is traveling on a bus, one of the things that they may not realise is that they may be in an accident just like they might be if they were in a car.  Below is some of the information about bus accidents and reasons that someone might need a bus accident lawyer.

    Before we get into what to do if you have been in a bus accident, we are going to go over the types of accidents that can happen on a bus and why people often need a bus accident lawyer:

    • Passenger accidents

    Sometimes a passenger can have an accident on a bus even though the bus didn’t collide with anything. This happens when the person falls on the bus, when they slip on a wet floor, or when they fall getting on or off the bus.

    • Bus colliding with another vehicle

    Collisions that happen between the bus and another vehicle will often result in injuries to the passengers. It could be the bus driver’s fault or it could be the other driver’s fault.

    •  Bus accident due to erratic driving

    When a driver is driving erratically, this often will cause an accident and injuries to the passengers and possibly the driver.

    Steps to take before finding a bus accident lawyer

    Gather details about the bus like the bus number, the accident time, the route, and where the accident happened, along with the details of the other vehicles that were involved, if any.

    Get the bus driver’s badge number and the station, badge number, and name of the police officers who are investigating.

    Keep the ticket that you used if you were a passenger on the bus.

    Get information about any witnesses, like addresses and names of the other passengers, drivers, and passers by.

    Take pictures of your injuries and the scene.

    Go to the doctor and have your injuries taken care of quickly.  If you were injured because you fell in the bus, tell the bus driver quickly also and make sure that there’s a written report. It’s also a good idea to report your incident to the bus company.  Otherwise the driver and/or company is going to claim that they didn’t know about the incident and that could cause trouble if you make a claim.
