Although riding the bus can be an eco-friendly and affordable mode of transportation, simply waiting at a bus stop or getting on or off a bus can be dangerous. Bus accidents often cause severe injuries to the passengers aboard or to people in the other vehicle. If you or your child was hurt in a bus crash or suffered a bus-related injury, you need to find a personal injury firm to trust your case to.

We represent the following types of bus accident cases:
Our Schuylkill County injury lawyer can investigate the actions of the bus driver or the other motorist who caused the accident and gather evidence to support our findings. We can also examine the bus company's hiring and training practices, the bus driver's history of accidents or traffic offenses, and the maintenance and safety of the bus itself. Our firm has represented cases caused by speeding, distracted driving, failure to yield, illegal turns, unsafe lane changes, pulling out, or other negligence.
There are special considerations when suing bus agencies for an accident involving a city bus or Shared Ride van, including a short window to file a notice of claim.
