Las Vegas Bus Accident Lawyer

If you have been injured by a bus as a passenger, if you were hit by a bus while driving your car, truck or commercial vehicle, riding your motorcycle or bike, or if you were struck by a bus as a pedestrian, you may be struggling with catastrophic injuries. Because there are so many buses on the road, the chances of getting into such an accident are extremely high. As lawyers who have handled these types of cases before, we know how to pursue the justice and compensation that you need to cover your expenses and lost wages.

Las Vegas NV suffers major traffic congestion, is obviously a tourist destination and is also a crossroads for travelers bound for other cities. City mass transit vehicles are used to alleviate high traffic volume. Tourists ride on buses through town to and from the airport. Cross country buses speed across the I-15. All of these factors contribute to the risks of a bus accident in or around the city. If you or a loved one has been injured in a bus accident anywhere in Las Vegas or Southern Nevada, you need an experienced bus accident lawyer on your side.

Bus Crashes are Legally Complex: We are Prepared

We can help you get through this difficult time. We know the intricacies of these types of traumas and we are prepared for the legal challenges. Commercial vehicles, city and county operators, out-of-state bus companies, driver fatigue, manufacturer fault, drug and alcohol abuse, and the possible involvement of the NTSB: these are just some of the complications that can contribute to the challenges of a bus accident. When you contact us, you will see that we are prepared for even the most challenging cases.

Bus Drivers and Transportation Companies Must be Held Accountable

These accidents can result in catastrophic injuries: spinal cord damage, head trauma, broken limbs, burns, paralysis, and many other serious physical challenges. Such injuries will be accompanied by steep medical bills, lost wages and other damages including, potentially, the need for lifelong medical assistance. Many times an insurance company or large corporation will resist paying fair compensation to victims. We will do everything we can to make sure you are not left with the burden of these damages. If the insurance company fails to offer you a favorable settlement, we will take your case to court and fight for the full compensation you deserve.

Experienced Bus Accident Lawyers in Las Vegas, NV

We have experience fighting for injured passengers, motorists, cyclists and pedestrians who have been injured in bus accidents involving:

  • Hotel vans
  • Shuttle buses
  • Casino shuttle services
  • Citizens Area Transit (CAT) buses
  • Taxi cabs

Though such cases have many similarities to other types of vehicle accidents, they are also unique. National, state, and local governments may be involved. Out-of-state corporations, massive insurance carriers, and corporate lawyers may also have a stake. Many of these crashes are caused by a bus driver who was distracted because they were texting or focusing on their cell phone. Furthermore, a transportation company may blame the bus driver for the accident. Often times, however, a bus company may have some responsibility for not maintaining a safe vehicle. They may also have pushed a driver to perform while they were fatigued. Because we are experienced with these types of cases, we are prepared for these and all other legal challenges.
