1) How much will it cost to hire a bus accident attorney?
If you’ve been involved in a bus accident and you have injuries, you may be trying to figure out how to deal with them and whether or not you should pursue a claim. One of the issue is how much an attorney is going to cost you. The good news for you is that, once you hire us, we prepare the case, and take all the steps necessary to get the case ready for settlement or ready for trial. We do that without any money coming out of your pocket. The only time you pay us is when we get a successful resolution of your case.
2) What mistakes should I avoid after a bus accident?
If you’ve been injured in a bus crash in the state of Arizona, you should know about some of the mistakes that people in your situation often make. In handling the claim, they talk to the insurance company’s adjusters and give them statements early on in the case. Also, they don’t get to medical treatment quickly enough and they don’t follow doctor’s orders carefully or at all. Another big mistake is not hiring an attorney quickly enough. By doing that, you can avoid the problem of dealing with the adjusters because we would take over all of that.
You want to hire somebody who has experience in handling bus crashes. You want to handle somebody who focuses on that regularly and understands what a bus crash is and how to deal with it. You want to hire a trial lawyer who can push the case as far as they need to get you a fair resolution.
3) Should I speak with an insurance company?
If 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.
