You may find it difficult to get back to the life you had before the accident. Not only are you suffering from serious injury or disability, but you may also be dealing with increasing medical bills, financial stress, and even an inability to return to work. In order to obtain the compensation you deserve, you may need an attorney to help you with your bus accident claim.
Experienced Bus Accident Attorneys
If you have been seriously injured in a bus accident, you may find it difficult to get the compensation you deserve. Often times, the buses involved are owned by large corporations—and in some cases, schools or government entities. It can be a challenging, uphill battle for individuals on their own to go up against a large company, who will fight to delay or deny payments for valid injury claims.
Attorneys with Doyle Raizner have extensive experience handling personal injury claims arising out of bus accidents. Recently, Doyle Raizner was on the team of attorneys representing the plaintiffs who were seriously injured in a bus accident. The lawsuit arose from a 2008 bus accident, which killed 17 people and seriously injured many others who were traveling for a religious retreat. The bus crashed after a retreaded tire, which had been improperly affixed to the front axle, was punctured—sending the bus plunging off a highway bridge near Sherman, Texas. In June 2011, Harris County District Court Judge Caroline Baker approved the settlement reached between the victims of the bus accident and several defendants, including the owner and operator of the bus. The terms of that settlement remain confidential.
