What should I do after being injured in a bus accident?
If you’ve been injured in a bus accident in the state of Arizona, make sure you get the medical treatment that you need. Your first priority should be making sure that you take care of yourself and you get yourself back to the full physical condition that you were in before the crash. To the extent possible, get photographs of the scene from the vehicles. There may be others that can take those for you if you’re too injured. You also need to contact an attorney as soon as you possibly can because there’s a lot of information involved in a bus crash that could disappear. You want to get the names of witnesses and anybody else who was involved. You need to see what physical evidence there is and make sure that all of that is preserved. There’s also electronic data that you should make sure gets preserved. You need an attorney to help you.
The other thing is that you should hire the right attorney for your case. A good choice would be somebody who has experience handling bus cases, and focuses on personal injury, including bus cases. Then you want to make sure you get a trial attorney involved because you need somebody who can take the case from beginning all the way through as far as the bus company is going to push it to make sure that you get a fair resolution in the case.
