A car is no match for a bus. A pedestrian or bicyclist is most definitely no match for a bus. Buses, by nature of their sheer size, mass and momentum, cause serious injuries and death to people inside and outside the bus in the event of a crash. If you were injured or if a family member was killed in a San Jose area bus accident, you are encouraged to contact a personal injury attorney right away. Know your rights before you agree to a settlement.
Initial consultations with San Jose bus accident lawyer John J. Garvey of the Law Office of John J. Garvey, III, are free. If you decide to retain the law firms services to help you obtain the monetary compensation that you need after a bus accident, your attorney fees will not be due until the final settlement or verdict is paid out.
Buses are not typically equipped with seat belts, and many passengers stand in a bus, leaving them vulnerable to injury when the bus must stop suddenly. A passenger who just boarded the bus, but has not sat down, is sometimes jerked around as the bus takes off, resulting in falls, blows to the head and other serious injuries.
Pedestrians or bicyclists outside a bus are often legally in a crosswalk or bike lane when a crash occurs — but might makes right when it comes to who wins in a bus-pedestrian or bus-bicyclist crash. The law, however, provides ways for the injured person to seek and obtain compensation for serious injuries or loss of a loved one in a fatal bus accident. Advice and help from a knowledgeable San Jose bus accident lawyer can lead the way to the monetary compensation that you need.
