Wichita Bus Accident Lawyer
Injured on a Bus in Wichita?
Bus accidents can be very serious with many passengers within the bus being injured as well as persons in other vehicles. Part of the reason for these injuries is that commercial bus firms have long resisted safety concerns. For instance in 1968 the National Transportation Safety Board pressed national bus carriers to install safety belts in their businesses.
Over 40 years later few busses carry safety belts for anyone but the driver. Bus accidents may have complicated liability issues. It takes an experienced bus accident lawyer often assisted by accident reconstruction technicians to establish liability and achieve full compensation for victims. You are urged to contact a personal injury accident lawyer in Wichita experienced in bus accident litigation.
It is important to act now so that your attorney may be able to examine the accident scene for evidence and interview witnesses before memories fade.

We at Rick Hodge, Attorney at Law are a bus accidents law firm serving Wichita, Kansas. We work diligently to reconstruct what happened in bus accidents and to firmly establish liability wherever it falls. We also assess the extent our client's need for compensation in consultation with his doctor. We then make every effort to negotiate for a fair settlement with the insurance company. If the insurance company refuses to do what is right, we are prepared to go to trial to seek the damages our client needs.
Where liability of the other party is established, the client is entitled to medical expenses, ambulance costs, hospital costs, property damage, pain and suffering and loss of income.
