Were you hurt in a bus accident while traveling across Wisconsin? Collisions involving large commercial vehicles such as buses and trucks can often lead to serious brain injuries and spinal cord injuries.

Like other motor vehicle accidents, bus crashes are commonly caused by driver error.
Leading causes of bus accidents include:
It is simply unacceptable for a bus driver to be unqualified, distracted, or behave recklessly behind the wheel. Dozens of passengers can be injured or killed due to one mistake by a driver or the maintenance crew.
Each personal injury case must be grounded on liability, or a party’s responsibility for what happened. A bus accident can create a unique and understandably unclear liability situation, as numerous parties could have contributed to the outcome. Our Milwaukee personal injury lawyers work hard to figure out where liability might lie in your case and help you file a claim against those parties. In some incidents, this could mean seeking partial recoveries from more than one party.
People or parties that could be liable for your bus accident include:
We can handle a wide variety of bus accident claims, including those involving school bus accidents, city buses, and charter buses. Whether you have been injured as a pedestrian or a driver, we can aggressively prosecute your claim so you are able to obtain the compensation you need. We are not afraid to take on big transportation companies such as Greyhound, Badger Bus, Megabus, and even the Milwaukee County Transit System and other government municipalities.
Bus crashes are far more complex than car accidents for a variety of reasons. For one, the resulting injuries are typically more severe and likely to be fatal. There may also be multiple parties to deal with, including the driver, licensing agency, regulatory agency, insurance adjusters, transportation companies, and government agencies. Dealing with all of these parties at once can be frustrating and confusing because all of these parties will most likely attempt to deny or minimize their role and liability in the accident.
A devastating bus collision could leave you with a brain injury, spinal cord injury, or any other form of catastrophic injury. To avoid paying for your recovery out of your own finances, you will want to consider litigation and lawsuits to set things right.
