Morgan & Morgan
Can I File a Claim If I Was a Passenger in the Bus Accident?
Yes, if the accident was due to the negligence or fault of the bus driver, another driver, or any other party, you have the right to pursue a personal injury claim to seek compensation for your injuries and related damages. A Morgan and Morgan bus accident attorney can help guide you through the claim process or even pursue a lawsuit if necessary.
What Damages Can I Recover?
If you were injured as a passenger in a bus accident, you may be eligible to recover several types of damages, including but not limited to:
- medical expenses (past, current, and future) as long as they’re related to the accident;
- lost income due to missed work while undergoing treatment or recovering from your injuries;
- the pain and suffering you endured;
- reimbursement for damaged personal belongings; and
- loss of consortium experienced by your family members.
In extreme cases of negligence or intentional misconduct (and if the case goes to court), the judge or jury may award you punitive damages to punish the responsible party and deter future misconduct.
Statue of Limitations on Bus Accident Claims in Washington DC
In Washington, D.C., you only have three years from the date of the accident to take legal action against the other side. If you don’t do so within this timeframe, you risk losing your right to sue even if you have a valid case.
That’s one of the reasons you should seek legal counsel early enough. The more time your attorney has, the better their chances of building a strong case on your behalf without worrying about strict deadlines.
