Bus Accident Cases in Dallas
What the News Never Mentions in Bus Injury Stories: There is Not Enough
We've all seen the story again and again, too many times. A bus full
of students or a church group runs off the road, into a bridge, or collides
with an 18-wheeler. Among those shattered include a father killed in the
4th row, a scholarship student with a brain injury in the back, and a
dozen others each of which deserves many millions of dollars.
But what the news doesn't mention is that, very often, there may only
be $1,000,000 to be split between all of them.
You need a Texas severe injury law firm that you can trust with three things:
- Evaluating every angle to discover, whenever possible, additional insurance
or assets that may be available.
- Move quickly to protect your rights before all of that money is given to
another victim who also deserves every bit of it.
- Not rushing for the "quick settlement" to cash-in on a single
letter and not looking to refer to a firm with a better reputation and
pocket a cut of the fee for handing it over.
We are the ones who less focused firms refer cases to, not the other way
around. We are the ones who find more insurance whenever it is to be found.
We are the ones to protect you while honoring all the loss of all the others.
Urgency matters. No matter where the bus started, was bound, or was in
the accident -- anywhere in Texas or the United States -- we want to hear
from you. The call and consultation is always free.

At Lenahan Law Firm, our focus is strictly upon representing the injured
or families of the injured in cases of severe injury or wrongful death.
Bus accidents can lead to very severe or fatal injuries, either when another
vehicle is involved, or to the passengers on the bus. As there are no
regulations that require seatbelts, an overturned bus is often the scene
of multiple injuries or deaths. If you or a loved one has been injured
in any type of accident involving a school bus, city bus, tour bus, commercial
bus or other type of bus, it is crucial that you contact our firm as quickly
as possible after the accident. There is certain evidence that must be
preserved, and a statute of limitations restricting the time in which
an injured victim can file a claim for compensation.
Catastrophic Injuries in Bus Accidents: A Common Issue
There is an average of 300 deaths from bus accidents each year. These accidents
include city buses, school buses, charter buses, tour buses and other
types of buses for transporting persons that weigh 10,001 or more lbs.
There are a range of contributing factors that could lead to a tragic
and deadly accident, including:
- Road conditions
- Driver negligence
- Equipment failure
- Drug / alcohol impairment
Sadly, the injuries sustained are often
catastrophic or could require months or years to treat, including a long period of
rehabilitation, or could lead to the need for ongoing nursing care.
Costs from a Bus Accident
Many victims from a bus accident will never again enjoy the quality of
life they had prior to the incident, and may have lost abilities. The
costs related to treatment can range into the hundreds of thousands of
dollars within a few weeks. Most families don't consider the financial
ramifications of the accident at first. They are focused purely on the
health and survival of their loved one. As time progresses it can become
evident that to care for the injured throughout their lifetime. In such
cases, it is imperative that you have a legal advocate on your side that
knows the system and has already achieved many high value settlements
and verdicts. Our legal team of Dallas personal bus accident lawyers is

been another driver that was partially responsible, or the bus driver
could have been traveling at an unsafe speed. Some accidents are the result
of the failure of a critical safety component. Every detail of your case
must be fully evaluated to determine how to file a claim, and what parties
could hold responsibility for the costs involved in treating the injuries
and caring for the patient.
