Riding the bus, while a reliable and convenient method of transportation, carries the same risk as with any other motor vehicle. In fact, a recent study showed that on average more than 15,000 people suffer injuries from bus-related accidents in the U.S. annually. And in 2017, there were 519 crashes in North Carolina involving commercial buses, and 155 involving other buses.
What Not to Do
When you have been involved in a bus accident, it can make you feel as though you must act right now. And while it is important not to put off speaking with a qualified personal injury attorney, it is equally important that you remember not to take certain actions without first consulting with one.
- Do NOT meet with or speak to the bus company’s insurance adjuster
- Do NOT sign any medical authorization forms
- Do NOT wait to see if the insurance adjuster will be unreasonable in settling your case
