Bus accident compensation statutes work very much the same as any personal injury laws in Arizona. The state operates under rules of comparative negligence, meaning your liability for the accident will be deducted from your compensation reward. To maximize your compensation and build a successful case, you will need an experienced attorney to guide you through this process.
Bus Accident Compensation Statutes | Comparative Negligence
The good news for bus accident victims in Arizona is that we live in a state that allows for you to receive compensation even if you are mostly at fault for the accident. It gets capped at 99% at fault and barred at 100%. The not-so-good news is that, if you have been pinned for some fault in the cause of the accident, your compensation reward will be reduced to account of that. For instance, if you were blamed for 20% of the accident while being awarded $10,000, then your award would be reduced to $8,000. We will work very hard to keep any reduction from happening to you. Make sure you contact us right away. You have two years from the date of the accident to bring your claim or settle it in civil court.
