Bus accident claims most often involved school buses, metro transit systems, or over the road tourism or commercial coach operators such as Greyhound.
These claims can be complicated by a number of factors, including personal injury or wrongful death claims by multiple victims. While bus operators typically carry large commercial insurance policies, the presence of multiple victims can quickly exhaust available coverage limits. Denver bus accident attorneys therefore often best serve their clients by the timely filing of a damage claim. However, equally important is thoroughly investigating all of the facts and circumstances of a bus accident, and identifying all liable parties, which may include a bus driver, the owner or operator of a bus, another at-fault driver of party, and even your own insurance carrier in cases where a victim is covered by optional uninsured/underinsured motorist coverage.

Bus Injury Claims in Colorado
For each identified defendant, five elements must be proven:
Because victims are passengers of a bus operator, a personal injury or wrongful death claim will generally involve at least two defendants in cases where a bus operator is not found at primary fault: The bus operator as well as the other at fault parties. While this can provide multiple avenues of compensation for victims and families, it also complicates a claim as defendants and their attorneys work to minimize their own liability.
In addition to thoroughly investigating all of the facts and circumstances of a bus accident, and identifying all liable parties and their insurance companies, a complete damage claim must be made. Damages may include:
Bus accident victims may include: Bus passengers, drivers or occupants of another vehicle hit by a bus, or cyclists, pedestrians or other vulnerable road users, such as motorcycle riders, involved in a collision with a bus.
