With the high cost of gasoline along with Las Vegas traffic, more commuters are taking the bus. Because of the increased number of people using public transportation, bus-related accidents are also rising.
Bus accidents can occur either while riding a bus, when a bus hits a pedestrian on the street, or a passenger car and bus collide. If you are in a bus accident, you should seek medical attention immediately. Keep all documentation of your injuries and doctor visits. Gather as much information about the accident as you can and record names and contact numbers for all involved. It is important to only speak to law enforcement officers and not insurance representatives. You should also contact an experienced personal injury lawyer right away.
