Indianapolis Bus Accident Attorneys

Representing Victims of Catastrophic Collisions throughout the State

The average full-sized, fully loaded bus weighs nearly 40,000 pounds. Because of this, collisions involving buses typically result in catastrophic damage. Just like auto accidents, there are many factors that lead to bus collisions, and many of them are avoidable. Driver negligence, distracted driving, poor maintenance, poor training, drugs or alcohol use, and malfunctioning equipment are leading causes in bus crashes.

Tabor Law Firm has experience handling accident claims involving all types of buses across Indiana, including school buses, private coaches, and public transportation buses. We assist injured bus passengers, as well as third-party victims, such as other motorists, bicyclists, and pedestrians. Our Indianapolis bus accident attorneys have more than a century of combined experience, and we are prepared to help you navigate the legal system from start to finish.

How We Build Strong Cases

Much like in other types of motor vehicle accident cases, such as car and semi-truck accidents, we begin our investigation by looking into every potential responsible party. While it may seem obvious that a bus driver caused the accident, most bus drivers are operating the vehicle under the employment of a larger company or entity. Because of this, there may be several liable parties.

In most cases, bus companies have insurance coverage for both themselves and their bus operators. That means the bus company will dedicate considerable resources to limiting their overall exposure. We know how to level the playing field.

During our in-depth investigation, we’ll look at various factors involved in the accident, such as:

  • Who is responsible? We will want to examine all evidence, including your bus ticket and any police reports, to establish who is at fault in a timely manner. We will work with outside experts to help conduct our investigation. We have a nationwide network of experts at the top of their fields whom we can call on.
  • Where did the accident happen? We'll discuss where the bus collision happened. For example, if it happened outside of Indiana, we will look to apply the laws of the state in which the bus collision occurred. We can help you no matter where your accident happened.
  • What observations did you make regarding the incident? We'll talk about where you were seated in the bus at the time of the crash, and also discuss anything unusual you may have noticed about the bus or bus driver.

If you are a passenger on a bus and the bus driver is at fault, you will need to make arrangements with your health insurance carrier to pay your bills until your case is resolved against the bus company. Often, your health insurance carrier will want to be reimbursed at the time of settlement. Tabor Law Firm can advise you in how to get your medical bills paid while your case is pending.
