Understanding Fault & Cause in Bus Accidents

Bus accidents can be caused by all sorts of things, including fault or no-fault events. Bus accidents may be rare compared to the frequency in which auto accidents occur. When a collision with a bus does happen, however, they can be devastating.

Your Concerns, Answered

Common Questions

  • Questions

  • Who will be held accountable for my accident?

    Answer

    If you were injured in an accident caused by no fault of your own, or if a loved one has been wrongfully killed due to another party’s negligent or reckless behavior, then you could be eligible to file a claim and pursue financial compensation under your State’s personal injury laws. Different parties can be held responsible for an accident that resulted in injury, including individuals (like a reckless bus driver) or an entity (such as a product manufacturer).

  • What type of compensation can I recover?

    Answer

    Recoveries can come in two forms: non-economic compensation and economic compensation. Economic compensation typically refers to the following: medical bills (past and current), lost wages due to time away from work, lost earning capacity, and property damages. Non-economic compensation can refer to: emotional pain and suffering, change in lifestyle, loss of companionship, or loss of enjoyment of life. Other forms of compensation can also include punitive damages or wrongful death claims.

  • Should I accept the deal my insurance company provided?

    Answer

    You have insurance coverage for a reason: when emergencies hit, you want to know that you are covered. Unfortunately, most insurance company settlements are so pitifully low that most victims are left with additional expenses in the aftermath of an accident. We know that the last thing you want is a courtroom battle, but we can help make sure you receive the full compensation you really deserve.

  • Why do I need a lawyer?

    Answer

    Working with an attorney can help level the playing field. Simply put, our firm makes sure insurance companies don’t try to corner you into accepting a low-ball offer. We know how to investigate a case to make sure you are receiving the full amount of compensation, and then we fight hard to make sure you do not receive anything less than what you rightly deserve.

  • Meet Attorney Stephen G. Sanders

    Civil Prosecutor Dedicated to Standing Up for the Rights of the Injured

    After finishing law school in 2001, Attorney Stephen G. Sanders found his passion in fighting on behalf of the wrongfully injured, and he is willing to do whatever he can to create real positive change in the lives of each one of our clients. He believes in the importance of community, and is committed to doing his part to keep ours safe.

    Throughout his career, our attorney has handled and secured successful outcomes in many highly complex cases. One of Mr. Sanders’ most defining moments came when he represented an 8-year-old girl who was paralyzed by a vehicle. In an exceedingly complex product liability case, he achieved a successful outcome while facing one of the world’s largest automobile manufacturers. As a result of his tremendous work in this case, Mr. Sanders was asked to become a founding faculty member for the Keenan Ball Trial College. He has since instructed numerous classes there and has been asked by attorneys across the country for help with their personal injury cases.

  • Meet Attorney David L. Johnson

    Civil Prosecutor Committed to Restoring Justice on Behalf of Injured Victims

    Since his early childhood, David L. Johnson yearned to be an attorney. The career called to him in fifth grade when he spoke with two lawyers on career day. From that day forward he spent the entirety of his education with that goal in mind, focusing his studies on public speaking, debate, forensics, and mock trial. While attending law school at the University of Missouri-Columbia, Mr. Johnson received recognition in several mock trial competitions, served on the Board of Advocates, and directed the 1L Moot Court competition. In the years following his graduation, Mr. Johnson has become a prestigious Kansas City civil prosecutor, representing clients in complex cases involving wrongful death, general torts, workers' compensation, and more.

    To Attorney Johnson, justice means more than giving clients a fair chance in court. He doesn't just want their voices heard, he wants the court to recognize the gravity of their situation and force liable parties to acknowledge their role in the injury. These lawsuits are serious, particularly when they pertain to catastrophic injuries and wrongful deaths. By forcing negligent parties to make their actions public, our attorney contributes to public awareness of these accidents and discourages others from making the same mistakes. He believes his work in deterring future injuries is just as important as finding justice for victims of car crashes and other catastrophes.

  • Meet Attorney Jason T. Wilson

    Civil Prosecutor with Experience from Both Sides of the Courtroom

    Attorney Jason Thomas Wilson’s legal career was forged through rigorous education and a series of experiences in personal injury litigation that left a deep impact on him. After graduating from Brigham Young University’s Law program, Jason landed work in a small-town law firm where he had the opportunity to work both prosecution and defense in personal injury lawsuits. This gave our attorney the opportunity to see first-hand how powerful corporations make conscious decisions that put the general public at risk for the sole purpose of cutting costs.

    Through his interaction with injury victims both working on their behalf and, occasionally, against them, Jason found that one route was more rewarding than the other, and now works full time as a personal injury prosecutor at Sanders.Law. One of Jason’s eye opening cases to how tight insurance companies can be with their money did not even involve an injury. In this case, a young woman was hit by a truck. No one was hurt, and the truck driver admitted fault— all the victim asked for was fair compensation for the damage to her vehicle. Even with their insured taking responsibility, the insurance company refused to pay and hired legal counsel to defend themselves.

    Seeing how reluctant this company was to pay for the market value of a car, Jason realized that people who have been injured in these situations face tremendous resistance while fighting for recovery for their medical bills. Our attorney is now completely dedicated to protecting the rights of people who have been harmed by negligence.
