Philadelphia’s bus accident attorney firm

Millions of people use buses as a primary mode of transportation in the greater Philadelphia area each year.  And for the most part, these trips are safe and comfortable, delivering the vast majority of passengers to their destinations without problems.

However, Philadelphia is also a highly congested city, meaning that despite its relative safety, buses are involved in accidents on a regular basis.  This can happen due to sudden stops, pedestrians who don’t pay attention and step in front of a bus, bicycle riders, poor drivers in other vehicles, human error or many other variables.  Bus accidents are unique in that they are a form of public transportation. So when an accident happens and you want to be compensated for your injuries or damage to your car or other possessions, you need the professional services of a bus accident attorney.  For many years, the attorneys at Master Weinstein and Moyer have been providing this professional service for victims of bus accidents.

Determining who is at fault in a bus accident can be complicated

To ensure you receive the maximum compensation due to you, the attorneys at Master Weinstein and Moyer will take extensive efforts to determine who all the liable parties are when a bus accident happens.  Because many people might be involved, and because of the disparity in size when a bus is in an accident with a car, a bicycle rider or a pedestrian, the stakes for a large settlement are often in play.

When a car and a bus are in an accident, and the car driver is at fault, the claims process is a fairly straightforward process. However, when a bus driver is the guilty party, things can become much more complicated, especially when the bus is operated by a government entity.  Regardless of ownership, the key to winning a case is proving liability.  This means researching if the driver was adequately trained to drive a bus, if the driver was fatigued from a long shift at the time of the accident, and determining if the bus was in good mechanical operation and properly maintained.

In some cases, the driver may also be given a blood-alcohol test to determine if drugs or alcohol were involved.  And, if a passenger distracts a driver, they can be held accountable for contributory negligence if it can be proven they are at least partially at fault.

Sorting these issues is not an easy task and can be challenging, especially if you are seeking damages from a large bus company that has considerable legal resources.  That is why you need Master Weinstein and Moyer, a Philadelphia bus accident law firm, representing your interests, making sure that you get full compensation for pain and suffering, medical bills, lost wages and other related damages
