Question:

What common mistakes do people make in their bus accident cases?

Answer:

Unfortunately, we see many of the same common mistakes people make after being involved in bus accidents here in Orlando. One of the biggest mistakes we see people make is hiring the wrong law firm or the wrong lawyer. Hiring the wrong law firm or the wrong lawyer can make the difference between getting recovery – full and fair compensation – and no recovery at all, oftentimes. It’s important that you hire the right lawyer and the right law firm. You want someone who specializes in personal injury and has experience with bus accident cases, as well as the financial resources to pursue a bus accident case when needed. That’s one of the biggest mistakes we see people make— hiring lawyers that don’t specialize in personal injury, don’t have experience in bus accident cases, and oftentimes don’t even have trial experience.

Common Mistakes in a Bus Accident CaseAnother common mistake we see people make is not seeking medical treatment right away. It’s important in any accident, but especially bus accidents, to seek medical treatment right away so that the injuries, problems, and symptoms can be documented, and also so you can begin the road to recovery.

Another common mistake we see people sometimes make is not calling emergency medical help to the scene. In any accident, especially in a bus accident, it’s important to get police to the scene, as well as an ambulance if there are injuries, so the injuries can be documented right away and also so that the police can begin their investigation to start understanding exactly what has happened.

Another common mistake we see people make is not calling a lawyer right away. Oftentimes, the bus companies will have their lawyers, their investigators, their accident response team at a scene immediately after a bus accident and evidence disappears quickly and is not documented appropriately. It’s important that you call a lawyer right away so they can get out to the scene, get their response team to the scene, and start documenting exactly what happened.
