As previous posts on this blog have mentioned, a lot of times, it’s not just people in other cars and vehicles who get hurt following the crash of a large bus. Whether a tour bus accident or similar incident involves just the bus or an actual collision with another vehicle, in many occasions, it is the passengers on the bus, often unrestrained, who wind up getting the worst of the collision.
The good news for these victims is that in Nevada, tour bus companies have an obligation to transport their passengers safely from point A to point B. When they do not uphold this obligation, injured passengers can and should seek compensation for their losses.
However, this does not mean that a bus company or the company’s insurance carrier is going to be willing to admit responsibility right away or, even if it does accept fault, be willing to pay compensation that will be enough to cover the full extent of a passenger’s losses.
It can be a very frustrating situation when a passenger is unable to get the money they need to pay their bills and put their lives back together, especially since the bus company made money off the passenger when it collected its fare, but is now not willing to make the situation right.
In these sorts of cases, our law office has a record of representing passengers successfully against a tour bus company. With our experience, we understand the special issues that often accompany accidents and other incidents involving large buses, and we are familiar with the different means and channel a passenger can use to pursue compensation for their losses.
Our goal in every case is to investigate thoroughly and assert our position confidently until our clients are able to secure the compensation that they deserve.
