What do you do when you are involved in an accident while riding on a bus?
The process doesn’t change much whether you are driving a car or riding in a vehicle during an accident. Your primary concern is making sure you and your loved ones are safe. Understanding what happened and having a good idea of the circumstances is important. Hiring an attorney is a must as the bus companies will have a team of lawyers by their side. Representing yourself will put you at a significant disadvantage when it comes to being compensated fairly.
Seek medical attention.
You should always contact the police and request an ambulance. Even if you don’t feel it at the time of the accident, you might be facing injuries. You can’t be sure unless you are checked by a medical professional, and it’s better to be safe than sorry.
Immediately take note of the time, location, bus number, and bus driver identification during an accident. It is very important that you can trace yourself back to the exact bus ride where the accident occurred. If the police ask you for a statement, it is safer to opt out of describing the incident. After a traumatic accident, you are likely to have trouble remembering everything accurately. It is better to withhold your statement than to give the police false information.
Tip: All buses should be equipped with surveillance cameras, so not providing a description of events carries little risk to the case.
