How Your Bus Accident May Have Occurred
Bus drivers must accomplish several prerequisites to do their jobs, including:
- Obtain special licenses
- Pass driving tests and background checks
- (Potentially) submit to drug and alcohol testing
However, there is still no way to reduce the chance of a bus accident to zero. When buses get into collisions, it is often the other person in the accident who suffers the worst damages. Bus passengers are also at risk, as many city buses lack seat belts and air bags.
Regardless of the circumstances of your Columbus bus accident, the personal injury lawyers at Bressman Law want to make sure you recover the compensation you deserve. We take on the responsible parties and help you collect compensation from them and their insurance companies.
You May Have Been a Bus Passenger in an Accident
If you were a passenger in a bus that crashed—and you suffered injuries in the collision—we can help you pursue compensation against a number of potentially liable parties. As a passenger in a bus, any safety you gain from the vehicle’s relative size to other cars on the road is canceled out by the lack of protective features like seat belts and airbags.
It is therefore essential that the bus driver takes every precaution to avoid a situation where passengers have the potential to get injured. We will:
- Investigate the accident
- Identify any negligence that contributed to the crash (along with who was responsible)
- Collect evidence
- Build a compelling case on your behalf
We are prepared to help you in any way we can.
You May Have Been the Driver of a Vehicle Hit by a Bus
If you were driving a bus when involved in an accident, we will determine liability. Even if you believe or were told that you were partly at fault for the accident, you may still be eligible to recover compensation. Do not avoid calling a lawyer because you are worried the wreck was your fault or partly your fault. We will evaluate your case, let you know if you are eligible for compensation, and then help you collect it.
You May Be a Pedestrian or Bicyclist Who Was Hit by Bus
There are dangers to be aware of as a pedestrian, and therefore many Ohio pedestrian laws. If you were traveling by foot, bicycle, or another non-motorized means of transportation when you were struck by a bus, we will fight for the compensation you deserve.

Whether you realize it or not, your case may have unique circumstances that affect your filing deadline.
