3 Bus Accident Questions

1. Should I speak with an insurance company?

3 Bus Accident QuestionsIf you’ve been involved in a bus crash in the state of Arizona, you’re likely going to be contacted by an insurance adjuster, and potentially other representatives of the bus company or the insurance company. They’re going to want to take a recorded statement from you about the incident. I’m asked frequently, “Do I have to give a recorded statement or should I give a recorded statement?”

I generally recommend that you not give a recorded statement until you’ve had the opportunity to talk to an attorney. The reason for that is the individuals who are taking those statements are trained in how to get information that favors the bus company’s position and hurts your position.

2. Will my bus accident case go to trial?

If you’ve been involved in a bus crash in the state of Arizona, you may be wondering if your case will have to go to trial. Most of the cases do get settled short of trial, but it’s difficult to know at the beginning of a case which case will settle and which will need to be tried. One of the things that we always do as trial attorneys is prepare every case as if it’s going to go to trial so if it has to go to trial, we’ll be prepared.

3. How long will my bus accident case take?

In the state of Arizona, if you’ve been involved in a bus accident, you probably want to know how quickly we can settle your case. It’s always hard to say that at the beginning of a case because we don’t know what the injuries are. We need to know first of all what your injuries are, what your limitations are, and how that’s going to impact you. Once we have good understanding of what those injuries are, we can get a demand to the insurance company. If they come back and make a fair offer, the case can get resolved fairly quickly. If they don’t make a fair offer and push us towards litigation or continuing to fight with them, it’s going to take longer.
