Have you been injured in a bus accident? Whether you were riding on a bus or you were hit by a bus as a pedestrian, bicyclist, or motorist, you need to contact an experienced bus accident attorney ASAP.
Yes, bus accidents are like any motor vehicle or accident cases in many aspects, but most buses are owned by the MTA or a government entity. What does all this mean? In such a case you need to act quickly. In a MTA or government bus case, a claim must be made within 6 months of the accident to them. Although there are exceptions, you can lose your rights if you don’t file a proper timely claim.
The sooner you contact Castillo & Associates, the sooner we can begin working on your behalf and the greater the likelihood that your case will be resolved quickly and favorably.
We can help you with all the tasks associated with pursuing your bus accident injury claim:
The amount of compensation you will receive depends on a variety of factors, including the severity of your injuries, the cost of your medical treatment, and the strength of the evidence in your case. In general, more severe injuries justify larger amounts of pain and compensation, and stronger evidence will encourage he liable party’s representatives to make a fair settlement offer more quickly.
As your bus accident attorney, we will explore all possible areas of compensation before making any demands on or entering any negotiations with the liable party. This may include:
Without representation from a skilled bus accident attorney, you risk making all kinds of mistakes in the course of your case that could end up costing you thousands of dollars in compensation. For example, you might fail to document all your injuries or accidentally accept a lowball settlement offer that is inadequate to your needs.
Once you accept a settlement, that is the end of your case; you cannot go back and ask for more compensation. Make sure you get it right the first time by hiring us as your bus accident attorney as early in your case as possible.
