Bus Accident Lawyer in Wisconsin
Wrongful death and injury compensation for bus crash lawsuits
When a school bus crashes, it’s guaranteed to make the news. Though statistically not as common as truck, car, or motorcycle accidents, bus crashes can cause multiple fatalities and serious injuries.
If you or a loved one are injured in a bus accident, personal injury lawyer Steve Caya in Janesville will help you secure maximum compensation and get back to your life. Your injury was someone else's fault, and it is NOT right for you to suffer through it alone.
How To File A Claim After A Bus Crash
Remain at the scene
When involved in a bus accident it is required by WI law that you remain at the scene. If you are able, move your car from oncoming traffic, and get yourself or any passengers to a safe area. When you can, follow these tips on what to do next:
- Call the Police
- Record evidence
- Seek medical attention
Hire a personal injury lawyer
Insurance companies want a quick settlement. Hiring an experienced personal injury attorney like Steve Caya will help ensure no stone is left unturned to get you the compensation you deserve.
Document your expenses
Having a complete list of your financial losses due to a bus driver’s recklessness is the best way to help your attorney determine the settlement you deserve.
Do not talk to the other bus driver's insurance company
After your claim is filed, their insurance will begin an investigation to determine liability. It is in their best interest to put any percentage of fault they can on innocent victims. They will use whatever they can from your conversations to do so. Leave any contact with them to your experienced attorney.
Negotiate a settlement
Though difficult in some cases, it is important to remain patient and allow your lawyer to negotiate the best possible settlement. Insurance companies will do what they can to get you to quickly accept their first offer, even more so if you are experiencing financial hardships and need that money quickly. Steve Caya and his experienced team will fight for every dollar you deserve.
