Bus/Train Accidents

Bus Accident In Kansas City

In the event of a bus accident, every passenger on board and all vehicles in the vicinity are in serious danger. Even at relatively moderate speeds, the size and weight of a bus can cause significant damage. If you or a loved one have been injured in a bus accident, it is important to hire a knowledgeable attorney to file a personal injury or wrongful death claim on your behalf. A lawsuit resulting from a bus accident can be very complex. Because buses are regulated for safety, a bus accident may be investigated by the state Department of Transportation (KDOT or MDOT) or the National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB), in addition to the local police. The defendant in your lawsuit may be different depending on whether your accident involved a city bus, a charter bus, or a school bus.

Train Accident

Any lawsuit where a train or railroad is involved requires the special expertise of an experienced train accident attorney.  Even minor train accidents can often result in major trauma for victims due to the massive size and weight of most locomotive trains.  Train accidents do not always involve collisions; other types of train accidents include derailments, multiple train collisions, train/automobile collisions, and railroad crossing accidents and injuries that occur on the railroad.

Often times, train accident injuries involve multiple parties. For example, a train carrying a toxic chemical that over-turns can cause injuries to innocent people near the scene of the train accident.  In other cases, if a passenger train derails, there can be many people injured at one time. Train accident victims can include train passengers, pedestrians and by standers, railroad workers and drivers of third party vehicles.
