Causes of Bus Accidents–Arlington Bus Accident Lawyers Seek Answers

No two bus accidents are the same, making it critical to have a legal team who can investigate the cause of the bus accident you were involved in. According to 2021 data from the Virginia Highway Safety Office, there were 399 crashes involving buses. Of those collisions, eight were fatal.

While there can be multiple factors at play that lead to the collision, some of the most common causes of Arlington bus accidents include:

  • Drunk or drugged driving
  • Aggressive driving
  • Distracted driving
  • Fatigued driving
  • Poorly maintained roadways
  • Weather conditions

It’s important to know that multiple parties can be at fault for a bus accident, and it may not always be the driver. In fact, in the same 2021 data, of the 408 driver actions reported that were involved in a collision, nearly 60% had nothing to do with the bus driver at all.

You need an Arlington bus accident lawyer from Regan Zambri Long to investigate the cause of the bus accident and determine who is at fault.

What Damages Can I Recover in an Arlington Bus Accident Claim?

Bus accidents often leave victims with severe injuries and a lifetime of financial struggles if they are not compensated adequately. But with the help of an Arlington bus accident attorney from Regan Zambri Long, you may be entitled to economic and non-economic damages.

Economic damages include:

  • Medical bills (past and future)
  • Lost wages
  • Diminished earning capacity
  • Property damages
  • Funeral and burial costs

Non-economic damages you may be entitled to include:

  • Pain and suffering
  • Loss of consortium
  • Loss of life quality

In some cases, you may also be able to collect punitive damages.

Because the parties involved in the accident may involve government-owned entities, it is critical to work with a law firm with experience in bus accidents as this can change the types of compensation and amount you are entitled to.

In addition to who was involved in the accident, the severity of your injuries can also dictate the amount of compensation you are entitled to. This is why you need to keep a record of all medical treatment given and long-term treatment plans as these costs will be used to calculate compensation.

Statute of Limitations for Arlington Bus Accidents

For most personal injury claims in Virginia, the statute of limitations to take legal action is two years from the date of the accident. However, depending on who your accident involved, those timelines may be shorter.

For example, in accidents involving public entities such as the ART Bus or WMATA, the statute of limitations is much shorter. If you are hurt in a crash involving a bus operated by Arlington County, you have to file a written summary to file suit within six months of the accident. For accidents involving WMATA, you have up to one year.

If you are unsure of the timeline that applies to your claim, contact Regan Zambri Long right away. We will work efficiently to ensure that you do not miss your filing deadline to recover compensation. If you miss the filing deadline, you forfeit your right to recover compensation.
