Our practice is guided by strict guidelines and standards of performance. We aim to maximize our clients’ recovery while delivering results in a reasonable amount of time.
If you are seriously injured in a bus accident, time is of the essence. Accidents involving buses are different than those involving only personal passenger vehicles. Bus accidents are often very complex and there are many moving parts in regard to the dynamics of the crash, often making preservation of the scene, the bus and other physical evidence very important.
An important aspect of a lawyer’s job is developing and managing relationships with clients (or the client’s employees, if the lawyer works in-house for a government or corporation).
The client-lawyer relationship is explained in six steps. First, the relationship begins with an intake interview where the lawyer gets to know the client personally. Second step is discovering the facts of the client’s case. Thirdly is clarifying what the client wants to accomplish. The fourth step is where the lawyer shapes the client’s expectations.

In addition, the manufacturers, owners, operators and drivers of buses must adhere to strict state and federal guidelines as they pertain to:
- Mandatory breaks to prevent driver fatigue
- Maintaining of a daily log book on the time spent driving
- Limitations on the use of wireless communications devices
- Specialized education and mandatory commercial driver training
- The installation of passenger seat belts
Because of these many regulations, in order to preserve the proper evidence, an attorney may need to immediately send notice to the bus company so that evidence will not be destroyed or deleted. Such evidence can include footage from onboard cameras showing what is going on inside and outside of the bus as the time of an accident; log books; the bus company’s training protocols; and the presence (or lack thereof) of seat belts. The preservation of all of this evidence is crucial to any case.
