How do I select the best attorney for my bus accident case?
I recently spoke to a woman whose son was involved in a bad school bus wreck, and one of her first questions to us was, “How do you go about finding an attorney who represents people who have been victims in school bus accidents?” That can be a difficult question. Bus accidents – any kind of bus accident – are often unique because they often involve county and state entities. You want to find an attorney who has a significant amount of experience in prosecuting claims against a state, county or municipality because there are special procedural rules that you must comply with in order to properly bring a claim. If you don’t comply with those rules, then your claim will be barred by sovereign immunity. If you’re attorney does not have experience in prosecuting those types of claims, there is a good chance that your case will be barred by sovereign immunity, regardless of how good it is and regardless of how negligent the state or county entity was.
You also want to make sure that you hire an attorney who’s had success in prosecuting these claims. It’s not enough to just hire an attorney who has the experience. You also want to find an attorney who has had success, and you may want to check their Google reviews, ask other lawyers, or just ask people that they’ve represented in the past. You may want to investigate them on various legal websites, such as Avvo, as well. Whatever you do, you want to make sure that you find an attorney who is experienced and focused on personal injury. If you have been the victim or know someone who’s been the victim in a bus wreck, we would be more than happy to sit down with you and answer any questions that you might have.
