BUS ACCIDENT
ATTORNEY OREGON

7/08/2020 Updated As Of

Oregon boasts one of the nation’s best public transportation systems. Many Oregonians see buses as a safe, affordable, and convenient way to get around. We expect buses to be safe, and that’s the way it ought to be. When we drive with buses on the roads, use buses to go places, or allow our children to ride school buses, bus operators and drivers have a duty to keep passengers and other motorists safe.

If you or someone you love has been recently injured in an accident involving a bus, you may be entitled to compensation. Greg Veralrud, one of Oregon’s top personal injury attorneys, is here to help. We will stop at nothing until things are made right for our clients, and we are not afraid to go to court if that’s what it takes.


 

Some common bus cases that have led to awards for victims include:

  • Bus-pedestrian accidents
  • Bus-car accidents
  • TriMet, Metro, or other public transportation bus accidents
  • School bus accidents
  • Greyhound bus accidents
  • Accidents getting on or getting off buses
  • Tour bus accidents
  • Church bus accidents
  • Charter bus accidents

 

Common causes of Oregon bus accidents include:

  • Driver error
  • Improper training for drivers
  • Driver fatigue
  • Speeding
  • Failure to obey traffic laws (right of way, lane changes, etc.)
  • Improper bus maintenance
  • Defective or improperly installed bus parts
  • Unsafe or poorly designed roadways

 

Oregon Bus Accident Suit Damages

Damages for bus accident cases in Oregon include economic damages, non-economic damages, and in some cases, punitive damages. These can include:

  • Medical costs, present and future, leading from injuries caused by the Oregon bus accident
  • Lost wages and income from time off work
  • Loss of future income (lost future wages) caused by mental or physical issues caused by the bus accident
  • Punitive damages of extreme negligence or malice is present

 

Initial Settlements for Oregon Bus Accidents

This initial offer is oftentimes much less than what you would be entitled to if you filed a civil suit. It is in most cases the best idea to consult with a your lawyer when offered a bus accident settlement to see if filing a suit could get you the full compensation that you deserve.
