Bus accidents are different from all other vehicular accidents. If a bus or a big-rig truck runs into an automobile, motorcycle, or pedestrian, the results will be roughly the same–and always tragic for the smaller vehicle. However, a truck may carry only cargo; a bus will hold fifty people or more who are not wearing seatbelts. During a collision, they will fly about the passenger cabin, colliding with each other, with baggage, with the bus’s seats and walls. Passengers regularly suffer severe–sometimes fatal–injuries despite being “protected” by the larger size of the bus.
Bus Accident Lawyer
Bus accidents are unique, and they require special handling. If you have been injured in a bus accident, you need the depth of experience available only from an bus accident lawyer who has devoted years to securing full compensation for people just like you.
Ostroff Injury Law’s managing partner Jon Ostroff, of Plymouth Meeting, Pennsylvania, represents many passengers who were injured in the crashes that have occured in 2013 and is currently investigating the I80 Greyhound crash which occured October 9th 2013. “It’s hard to believe that this is now the fourth time this year that a Greyhound bus full of passengers were involved in yet another violent, high speed interstate collision that occurred last night. The three previous crashes were caused by Greyhound bus drivers that passed out or fell asleep behind the wheel. We’ll be very interested to learn why this bus driver slammed into the rear of a truck in the middle of the night. Our thoughts and prayers go out to the victims of yet another tragic Greyhound Bus crash.”
Why personal injury lawyer Jon Ostroff is the right choice to represent you
You can find other traffic injury lawyers who say they have won millions of dollars for clients, or show their impressive credentials, or cite testimonials from satisfied clients. Ostroff Injury Law can match those item by item.
Other law firms tout their compassion and respect for clients. Same here. In fact, that’s one of the important reasons we get favorable client reviews and testimonials.
Here’s what attorney Jon Ostroff and his team can bring to the table that no other law firm can match: outrage. We are furious by how easily bus companies dismiss the rights of injury victims and spare no effort to avoid paying for injuries due to their negligence and their drivers’ recklessness.
Statistics vary from year to year, but about 60 percent of bus accidents in Pennsylvania involve intracity transit buses, charter motorcoaches and tour buses, and commercial intercity buses. The companies that own these vehicles range from medium-sized local operations up to giants like Trailways, Greyhound, BoltBus, Peter Pan Bus Lines, Coach USA, and Megabus. These companies each keep a staff of lawyers on retainer to work out ways to elude responsibility after a serious bus accident. We’ve seen them try claiming passengers give up their rights to sue when they buy a ticket. After a serious bus crash, their lawyers are soon on the scene to convince survivors to accept a tiny settlement and waive their rights to further compensation.
We are sick of these deceptive schemes and underhanded tricks. We fight aggressively for our clients’ full recovery for all medical bills, property losses, work disability, physical and occupational therapy, and non-economic damages. If the bus company or its insurers won’t meet our settlement demands, we’re happy to take the case to the courtroom and the jury.
Don’t get left by the side of the road
If you have been hurt in a bus accident, don’t submit to high-pressure tactics to get you to surrender your rights to full compensation. In fact, it’s best if you don’t even talk to the bus company’s insurance representative until you have spoken with a bus injury attorney from Ostroff Injury Law.
