Bus Attorneys Helping Victims in the Jackson Area

In America’s more populated cities, bus travel is becoming an increasingly popular means of transportation. As the demand for bus travel increases, so does the number of buses on the road. While bus travel may be convenient for many, more bus traffic unfortunately increases the likelihood that a bus accident will occur. Those who are injured in bus accidents likely have legal claims against the at-fault party (or parties) that may allow them to obtain compensation for their losses. If you have been involved in a bus accident in Jackson, Tennessee, or the surrounding area, the Jackson bus accident lawyers of Nahon, Saharovich & Trotz are ready to fight for your rights. Our firm is the largest personal injury law firm based in Tennessee, and our attorneys have recovered over $1.5 billion for our injured clients in more than 30 years of practice.

Pursuing Compensation in Bus Accident Cases

Each year, tens of thousands of bus accidents occur across the United States. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) and the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) define a bus as a vehicle designed and/or used for the transport of at least nine people, including the driver. This means that in each bus accident, there are usually many more potentially injured parties than in most other types of accidents. For this reason, companies that own or insure buses for Greyhound, Jackson Transit Authority, school buses, and others fight aggressively against the claims of injured parties, as a bus crash could result in dozens of injury claims being made at the same time. If you have been injured in a bus accident, it is important to seek the assistance of a bus accident attorney in Jackson who has the experience and resources necessary to fight for maximum compensation in your case.

Building Your Case Against the Responsible Party

Often, bus accidents are caused by the negligence of the bus driver, the bus driver’s employer, or the driver of another vehicle involved in the collision. There are many negligent actions that could potentially cause a bus accident, but common examples include:

If a bus accident victim can prove that his or her injuries were caused by the negligence of another party, he or she will likely be able to recover damages from that party or their insurance company. Additionally, if the victim’s injuries were caused by the negligence of the bus driver, the victim may be able to recover damages from the driver’s employer under the doctrine of vicarious liability, which states an employer can be held responsible for negligent acts of an employee committed within the course and scope of employment. Imagine a Greyhound driver with a full bus leaving the station at 38 Eutah Street, Jackson, TN 38301, pulling onto South Liberty Street, and immediately rear-ending a pickup truck stopped in traffic. Since the bus driver was transporting paying customers, driving on an authorized route, and acting for Greyhound’s benefit, vicarious liability should apply.

Damages available in a negligence action may include medical bills and lost wages incurred as a result of the victim’s injuries, as well as the victim’s pain and suffering. Victims who are severely injured may be entitled to even more damages, such as future medical bills, future lost wages, plastic surgery costs, and loss of consortium. A Jackson lawyer experienced in handling bus accident cases will be able to assist victims in pursuing their claims and ensuring that they seek recovery for all available types of damages.
