  • Companies that Could Be Responsible for the Bus Accident

    Alabama is home to many bus companies that serve different cities within the state, including right here in Birmingham. Some of the companies that may be responsible for the accident include but are not limited to:

    • Anchor Transportation
    • Baldwin Rural Area Transportation System (BRATS)
    • Birmingham Metro Area Express (MAX Transit)
    • BLS Charters, Inc.
    • Capital Trailways
    • C & S Charter and Tours, LLC
    • Cline Tours, Inc.
    • ClasTran
    • Colonial Trailways, Inc.
    • Covenant Elite Charters & Tours, LLC
    • Covington Area Transit System (CATS)
    • E & J Tours
    • Gulf Coast Tours, Inc.
    • Jefferson Lines
    • Kelton Tours Unlimited
    • Kingdom Coach, LLC
    • K & S Charters/Tours, LLC
    • Megabus
    • New Generation Charter, Inc.
    • Southern Coaches, Inc.
    • Southeastern Motor Coach, Inc.
    • Spirit Coach, LLC
    • Teague VIP Express
    • Takers Corporation, LLC

    Note that these companies don’t need to be physically stationed in Birmingham. They can be liable just by causing an accident in this city, whether or not they are allowed to operate there.

  • Common Injuries Caused by Bus Accidents

    Typical injuries resulting from bus accidents include whiplash, fractures, and broken bones, particularly in the limbs, as well as head injuries, varying from concussions to traumatic brain injuries (TBIs). Spinal cord injuries can also occur, leading to paralysis or mobility issues. 

    Passengers may sustain cuts, lacerations, or internal injuries due to broken glass, debris, or the force of impact. Soft tissue injuries are also quite common. They affect muscles, tendons, and ligaments and can cause pain and restricted movement. 

    Depending on the severity of the accident, you may also have suffered non-physical effects, such as PTSD, anxiety, and depression.

  • What Damages Am I Entitled to?

    Since Alabama is an “at-fault” state, you can pursue full compensation from the party you believe caused the accident. Here, you may be able to recover both economic and non-economic damages. These include but are not limited to past, current, and future medical expenses related to the accident, lost wages, loss of earning potential, pain and suffering, emotional distress, and more.

  • Hire a Bus Accident Attorney in Birmingham, AL

    Alabama follows the contributory negligence system, which means you won’t recover damages if you are even one percent at fault for the accident. Insurance companies will likely try to exploit this legal loophole to jeopardize your case. Don’t let them win. Contact us today for a free case evaluation. We might be able to help you protect your claim.
