If you or a family member has been hurt in a bus accident, you may not know where to turn for help. Is there insurance coverage available to help you pay medical costs, recover lost income lost if you cannot work, and deal with other consequences? Can you file a lawsuit?
Whether the injuries occurred on a Greyhound bus, a school bus, a private bus charter, or other commercial bus in Arizona, our attorneys are prepared to investigate and pursue your legal rights. Please contact us today for a free, no-risk consultation.
Bus companies, such as Greyhound bus lines, other companies that transport passengers for a fee (including limousine companies and Taxi Cabs), and bus drivers are common carriers under Arizona law. This means that they can be held to a higher standard of responsibility for protecting the safety of passengers than a private individual would be held to when driving his or her own car.
Bus drivers are entrusted with your safety; yet, far too often, these drivers and bus companies fail to take necessary steps, such as the following, to protect your safety:
Buses are extremely large, heavy vehicles that do not typically contain many passenger restraint systems for the protection of the occupants of the bus; and, when buses are involved in a wreck, passengers, luggage, and debris are often thrown about the cabin violently, resulting in major or catastrophic injuries.
Mr. Anthony Ramirez has professional experience in the thorough investigation of many accident types, and our lawyers can call on specialized resources to determine whether or not negligence caused the bus crash.
There have been serious bus crashes in Arizona during the last several years, some resulting in dozens of critical injuries and deaths. We believe it is essential to determine specific accident causes and hold certain companies and drivers accountable.
Contact the Ramirez Law Group, PLLC for counsel after any type of bus or other mass transit accident in Arizona. We are well-equipped to pursue compensation in these cases, as well as those involving airplane crashes or other catastrophic events.
