When winning is the only option

Bus Accident Lawyers

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 seat belts. During a collision, passengers will fly about the bus cabin, colliding with each other, with baggage, with the bus seats, windows and interior 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 represented more than 30 passengers injured or killed in four different catastrophic crashes in 2013 alone. After the fourth crash, Ostroff said: “It’s hard to believe that this is now the fourth time this year that a Greyhound bus full of passengers was 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 may 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. Jon Ostroff is proud of his results against the largest bus company in the US. He says: “In the past decade, no other firm in America has obtained over $25 million in verdicts and settlements against Greyhound, or represented the number of passengers injured or killed in preventable crashes. We’ll keep fighting until we teach this dog some new tricks.”

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 at 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 quickly and quietly on the scene to try 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.
