Although buses are among the larger vehicles traveling on South Carolina’s roads, their passengers are still at risk of being injured in a traffic accident. Hammack Law Firm promotes safety for all motorists and passengers, including bus riders. If you or a loved one has suffered injuries or losses in a bus accident in the Seneca area, we will help you seek compensation so you can pay your medical bills, replace the income you lost, and restore your damaged property.

Whether your accident involves a transit bus, school bus, coach bus, or another kind of bus, our Seneca bus accident lawyer will protect your legal rights and identify who is accountable for your losses. We believe in holding parties responsible and seeking justice for accident victims. You can learn more about your legal options and next steps during a free consultation with our team.

How Our Bus Accident Attorneys Will Help You

Bus passengers’ injuries can put them in a hospital and require extensive recovery time. Common injuries include head injuries, such as concussions and other traumatic brain injuries (TBIs), spinal cord injuries from whiplash and other swift motions, soft tissue injuries, fractures, and other health complications.

We will help you or your loved one seek monetary awards for your medical bills and other expenses from the liable party’s insurance company. We don’t think you should pay out of your pocket for an accident you didn’t cause. Although we know our accident cases usually settle out of court, we prepare them for trial just in case we must go to court. We build the strongest case possible so that our clients have a chance of receiving awards that compensate them appropriately.

We Will Manage Your Whole Case, Giving You Your Time Back.

Our bus accident attorney in Seneca will do the following for you:

  • Update you regularly on all developments in your case
  • Explain all laws that affect your case
  • Investigate your bus accident to establish what happened
  • Collect and review evidence supporting your claims
  • Interview witnesses and expert witnesses
  • Review your damages and assign a dollar value to your case
  • Identify all liable parties and notifying them of your legal action
  • Handle negotiations with insurers and other parties
  • File your lawsuit with the civil court if negotiations fall through
  • Keep your case on track and handle all communications for you

Recoverable Damages Depends on the Unique Circumstances of Your Case

No two cases are alike, so we will have to review your case’s details, circumstances, expenses, losses, future losses, and injuries to determine which damages you can pursue. Your recoverable losses will likely be split into two categories: financial and non-financial damages. We will assess both types and determine how much to request for your:

  • Medical expenses for emergency and ongoing treatment
  • Future treatment for your injuries
  • Financial losses, including lost wages
  • Reduced earning capacity if you can’t go back to your job
  • Property damages

Non-financial damages include:

  • Pain and suffering
  • Mental pain and anguish
  • Temporary or permanent disability
  • Loss of life enjoyment
  • Loss of companionship

Wrongful Death Damages Could Be Available in Your Case

Losing a loved one is painful, and we’re very sorry if you lost a loved one in a bus accident. If there’s anything we can do to make the legal recovery process easier, please let us know. We are here for you if you need us.

Wrongful death damages are available to certain family members under South Carolina law.

While no amount of money can replace a beloved relative, these awards aim to make it easier to take care of costs, such as the decedent’s medical bills, funeral and burial arrangements, and other matters.

We Give Injured Victims of Bus Sccidents the Personal Attention They Need

We offer a small-firm feel with a big-firm experience when we help those who come to us. You come first here, as we treat all our clients like friends and family. When we meet with you, we take time to get to know you and your family. We ask questions and listen carefully so that we can understand what happened in your accident.

Our compassion and care for our clients have helped put them at ease at a time when emotions, stress, and uncertainty run high. Our clients have provided Google Reviews of how much working with us has made a difference in their injury cases and lives. We also have shared their kind testimonials on our website.

We want to make the legal process easier for you. If you don’t know where to start, we offer a free consultation to help you get clear on what you want to do after your bus accident.

Multiple Parties Could Be Liable for Your Bus Accident in Seneca

Liability can complicate a bus accident case quickly as multiple parties may be liable. While it may seem apparent that the bus driver is liable, it is possible that they may not be entirely at fault or not at fault at all. Other parties who could be held accountable include:

  • The bus driver’s employer or contractor
  • The company that performs service repairs or maintenance on the bus
  • Another driver on the road
  • A pedestrian or bicyclist
  • A municipality in charge of maintaining the roads where the crash occurred

Any of the parties listed above could be held accountable for your crash. Our team will get to the bottom of the matter to determine who should pay and seek damages against them.

South Carolina Law Limits Your Time to Take Legal Action

Under S.C. Ann. § 15-3-530, you have three years to file your lawsuit, which starts on the day your accident occurred. However, this deadline could change if the accident involves a child, government agency, or official.

We will give you a timeline when we speak with you about your case during your free case review. The same three-year deadline applies if you want to file a wrongful death lawsuit.
