Personal Injury and Wrongful Death Lawyer

There are many questions that are unanswered at this time in regards to this collision as liability remains uncertain at this time. It is important to properly investigate the accident outside of what law enforcement will do.  Many times, their investigation is inadequate. Most individuals will take pictures on their cell phones.  It is important to keep these for proper documentation.  Bus accidents occur way too frequent.  Oftentimes, it is a lack of training and supervision on the part of the school district.  There is a wide range of injuries that result from these types of accidents.  Many passengers are able to walk away with a few scratches.  However, others suffer significant injuries.  Anyone involved in a bus accident should seek out immediate medical care if feeling any slight pain or discomfort. It’s very important to be seen by a doctor quickly as possible to ensure that there is no delay in treatment which can lead to an injury worsening over time. The laws pertaining to school districts and other public entities are different.  It is important to speak to any attorney as soon as possible to adequately protect your rights.  A delay may bar an individual from pursuing a case.

The family members of Ms. Priya Sandhu and the two injured passengers may also be entitled to wrongful death and personal injury lawsuit respectively pending the investigation results. Family members who suffer a loss or those who sustain injury are able to obtain compensation for medical expenses and hospital bills, funeral costs, lost future income, pain and suffering, and loss of love and companionship.

Every personal injury case is unique and many factors are used to value each case. The losses from your claim include the amount of the medical bills, lost wages, pain, and suffering, etc. The most important factor is your life change resulting from the injury. Typically, the larger the injury and life change, the larger the settlement. We discuss your personal injury claim’s worth during your free consultation.

The first thing you should do is contact an attorney. Without the representation of a lawyer, insurance companies might make contact with you directly, and since they are trained to protect their best interests, this could mean a loss of rights on your behalf, especially if you unknowingly sign something that they didn't completely explain to you.

Many victims believe if you don't have health insurance you don't have a case - this NOT true. In fact, those with health insurance usually don't use it since there are so many restrictions and steps to overcome to receive authorization for treatment.

Handling a personal injury claim by yourself is very difficult. You will deal directly with the insurance adjuster who is often trained to obtain the information they are not entitled to use.
