If you are seeking to recover bus accident compensation in Arizona, you will most likely be going up against the bus company’s insurance carrier. These types of injury claims are much different than your typical car accident claims. There are many more statutes that come into play. That’s why recovering bus accident compensation in Arizona will be very difficult without the help of an experienced Phoenix bus accident attorney.
Recovering Bus Accident Compensation in Arizona if You Are Partially At-Fault
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.
