We Understand The Special Issues In Bus Accidents
The injuries in a bus accident are similar to other traffic accidents, but the legal and insurance issues are different. If you were injured in an incident involving public transit or a private bus, you need a lawyer who knows the law and how to advocate for you.
Luxenberg Garbett Kelly & George represents people injured as bus passengers or as pedestrians or occupants of another vehicle. We will work diligently to make sure you are properly compensated.
If your case involves a public transit agency, it is critical to seek legal representation before your rights expire. We serve Lawrence County and surrounding counties of western Pennsylvania.
Experience With Bus and Transit Accidents
Our personal injury lawyers can address every scenario involving buses:
- Injuries while riding a bus or shuttle
- Injuries at the bus stop or Park ‘N Ride lot
- Pedestrians and bicyclists hit by buses
- Car drivers and their passengers injured in bus collisions
We can help, whether the accident involved a city bus, a school bus, a private charter bus or an airport shuttle. Our legal team has extensive experience in motor vehicle accident litigation. We conduct a prompt and thorough investigation to establish liability, and our attorneys work closely with clients and their medical providers to gauge the extent of the injury and the scope of damages.
There Is A Time Limit On Public Transit Claims
Contrary to myth, government agencies are not immune to lawsuits. We have brought claims against the New Castle Area Transit Authority and other public bodies. One key difference is the short statute of limitations.
In a typical personal injury case, you have two years to bring a claim. When suing a public transit agency for a bus accident, however, we must file written notice of your claim within six months of the injury. Failing to meet this deadline can bar you from recovering any compensation. Don’t wait any longer to call us!
