Bus Accidents

When you are riding a bus, whether a city bus, tour bus, school bus or Greyhound, you do not have control as you would in your own vehicle. You probably don't even have a seat belt, airbag or other protection. Yet buses can hurtle down the road or highway at 60 mph or more. They can roll, catch fire, injure and kill passengers and other drivers.

At Whiteaker & Wilson, P.C, our heart goes out to such victims and their families. That is why we are so effective in obtaining compensation for them: we are 100 percent dedicated to our clients. Our experience in personal injury claims is paired with a strong dedication to client interests. One of the ways we demonstrate that dedication is simple but important: We return client phone calls and respond to e-mails in less than 24 hours, so you can be certain that we will always be here for you to answer your questions or just listen to your concerns.

Experience + Dedication = Effective Representation

Whether the bus company hired a driver with a dangerous driving record, or failed to maintain brakes or other bus components, or even if the manufacturer of the bus is at fault, we aggressively pursue money for your medical bills, pain and suffering, lost wages, and other losses. Our experience is a great asset at the negotiating table. But when negotiation with those responsible are not fruitful, we are ready, willing and able to take your case to trial.

We also represent families who have lost loved ones due to wrongful death.
