Bus accidents are all too common in Las Vegas, as these large vehicles are regularly alongside smaller cars, pedestrians, and others navigating the crowded and congested roads of our city. If a bus driver makes the slightest mistake, it can result in serious and costly injuries to you or a loved one.
After a bus accident, liable parties should have to cover your injury-related losses. You should seek a free legal consultation with our bus accident lawyers at Cloward Trial Lawyers.
One question we regularly hear from prospective clients is how much a bus accident claim might be worth. To answer this, we must evaluate your individual circumstances. Contact an experienced Greyhound bus accident lawyer near you for a personalized case evaluation, and read on for general information about how much might be available in a bus accident claim and if you are within the right time frame to file it.
The amount of compensation you can receive from a bus accident claim depends on various factors, including the specific circumstances of the accident, the extent of your injuries, and the impact on your life. Each case is unique, and there is no fixed amount or guarantee of a specific outcome that you might get as an injury victim. However, we can provide you with a general overview of the factors that may influence the potential value of your bus accident claim.
Medical Expenses: One of the primary factors considered in a bus accident claim is the cost of your medical treatment. This includes past, current, and anticipated future medical expenses related to your injuries. It encompasses hospital bills, surgeries, medications, rehabilitation, therapy, and any other necessary medical services.
Lost Wages: If the bus accident resulted in your inability to work, you may be entitled to compensation for lost wages. This includes both the income you have already lost and any potential future loss of earning capacity due to your injuries.
Pain and Suffering: Bus accident victims may also be eligible for compensation for physical pain and emotional distress caused by the accident. The valuation of pain and suffering is subjective and can vary based on the severity of injuries, the duration of recovery, and the impact on your daily life and emotional well-being.
Property Damage: If your personal belongings, such as your vehicle, were damaged in the accident, you may be able to seek compensation for the cost of repairs or the fair market value of the property.
Punitive Damages: In cases where the bus driver or bus company acted with gross negligence or intentional misconduct, punitive or exemplary damages may be awarded. Punitive damages are meant to punish the defendant and deter similar behavior in the future and are only available through a lawsuit.
