Bus Accident Attorney Philadelphia

If you have been a victim of an accident involving a bus in Pennsylvania or New Jersey – whether as a passenger on the bus (such as Greyhound or Trailways) or in a collision with a bus as a motorist or a pedestrian – you will want to talk to attorneys who are experienced in bus accident claims and bus accident litigation.

Complexity of Bus Accident Cases

Bus accident claims involve more complex issues than car accidents. There are often questions about the condition of the bus, about federal safety standards, about the drivers’ proper licensing to operate the vehicle, about the drivers’ competence or fault, and substance abuse issues.

Additionally, many times the accident happened out of state and there are almost always multiple defendants, including the driver, the bus company, the municipality and/or a school district — and many other complexities. More importantly, there will be multiple insurance companies involved and multiple lawyers for the other side, all of whom have one purpose: to give you as little compensation as possible! That’s why you need an experienced bus accident attorney to protect your rights.

Frequently Asked Accident Questions


If you were injured in a bus accident in Philadelphia (for example Septa) or anywhere in Pennsylvania and New Jersey, the bus company likely will give you a card to complete. Make sure you complete and return the card promptly so that your injury is documented.

Medical Bills

Under certain circumstances, the bus company may be directly responsible for the payment of your medical bills.

Compensation after a Bus Accident

Damages that a bus accident victim and the victim’s family are entitled to recover may include: hospital and medical expenses; past and future lost earnings; past and future permanent physical disability, such as a limp, scars, loss of a limb; emotional distress, such as depression and anxiety; grief and emotional suffering caused by the death of a loved one; loss of love and companionship caused by the death of a loved one; damage or destruction of property; physical pain and suffering; loss of enjoyment of life.

To protect your legal rights following serious injury or death due to a bus accident, it is wise to consult a personal injury law firm with experience in bus accident claims as soon as possible. Within the first week, important physical evidence can be lost, and witnesses may become hard to find.

The Compensation You Deserve

If you have been injured in a bus accident in Philadelphia or anywhere in Pennsylvania and New Jersey, you should consult with an attorney as soon as possible after the accident. Most bus companies have only a certain amount of insurance coverage that must be divided between every person injured in the accident. Therefore, it is very important to have legal representation to ensure that you get your fair share of the bus company’s coverage and to explore all other recovery sources for you. Our law firm will thoroughly investigate your bus accident and work diligently to arrive at a timely settlement or proceed to trial to obtain the compensation you deserve.
