Pursuing Compensation with a Skilled Bus Accident Attorney
At Bowles & Verna LLP, we have been helping bus accident victims obtain full financial compensation for 25 years. Our two partner attorneys have 75 combined years of experience, and all of our bus accident trial attorneys have been practicing law for at least 10 years.
After a serious tragedy like a bus accident, it helps knowing that you have a skilled and experienced attorney team on your side. As a 23-attorney law firm, Bowles & Verna LLP of California is small enough to offer you the personalized legal service with enough resources to handle major litigation on a contingency fee basis. When you work with our law firm, you will not have to pay attorney fees unless we win a favorable verdict or settlement on your behalf.
Unique Personal Injury Litigation
Although bus accidents are similar in many ways to auto and truck accidents, there are a few things that make them unique:
- Higher standard of care: Greyhound and other tour bus companies, legally referred to as common carriers, are held to a higher standard of care than individuals driving automobiles or motorcycles. This makes it easier to establish liability.
- Insurance policies: Because of the number of people under their care, bus companies carry large insurance policies. Although we occasionally have to fight insurance bad faith issues in bus accident cases, there is generally more money available to compensate our clients for their injuries.
- Catastrophic injuries: Bus fires, collisions and rollovers usually result in catastrophic or fatal injuries.
While there is nothing we can do to truly make you whole again if you have suffered a catastrophic injury or loss of a loved one in a bus accident, we can see to it that you are adequately compensated for your losses.
