Anderson Hinkins LLC represents bus accident victims. If you have been in a bus accident, either as a bus paaenger or in collision with a bus, please contact us.
As cities like the Salt Lake City metro area continue to grow, congestion increases on local streets and highways. Sadly, as more and more people choose public transportation to save time and money, the number of people injured or killed in bus accidents has increased.
In addition to city buses, there are school buses. Each school day millions of children ride the school bus back and forth to school, and school related activities. Additionally, millions take buses to camp, religious, athletic, and youth events. School bus travel accounts for millions of travel miles every school day.
The main causes of bus accidents are driver negligence, defective equipment, dangerous roadways, poor weather conditions and improper maintenance.
If you or a member of your family has been injured as the result of a bus accident, either as a passenger, pedestrian, or the driver of another vehicle, you may be entitled to file a claim against the bus company to be compensated for your injuries. A bus or transit company, a common carrier, owes a higher duty of care to members of the public.
You should know what to do to protect your legal rights. We have successfully handled many accident cases, and we are ready to handle yours. Just and fair compensation for a bus accident victim may include: hospital and medical expenses; past and future lost earnings; past and future permanent physical disability; emotional distress and loss of enjoyment of life.

To protect your legal rights following serious injury or death due to a bus accident, it is wise to consult with a personal injury attorney as soon as possible. For a no-cost review of your case, please contact us.
