Maine Bus Accident Attorneys

Proven Representation in Northern New England

When people ride the bus, they trust that they will get to wherever they are going safely. They expect that the bus driver knows what they’re doing, that the bus is in working condition. People driving near buses tend to have the same expectations. Unfortunately, there is nothing stopping negligence from boarding a bus—or from crashing into one.

Were you or a loved one the victim of a bus accident? Shaheen & Gordon, P.A. would like to offer you a helping hand. We want to assist you in getting the compensation you are owed. Under law, all victims of negligence may seek compensation from the party that harmed them.

We’ll Fight for You

Even if the bus driver wasn’t at fault, the fact that they are involved brings in other parties with extensive resources, namely the bus company and their insurance provider. The complexity of a case doesn’t discourage our legal team; on the contrary, the more complex the case, the harder we are inspired to fight. We’ll give you access to our own extensive resources. No matter what it takes, Shaheen & Gordon, P.A. will work to secure the best possible outcome for your case.

Take the first step toward compensation—contact us online. Our Maine bus accident lawyers accept cases throughout Northern New England.

How to Recover Compensation After a Bus Accident

We all like to think that if we were injured, the other party would step up to the plate and help us out. Sadly, however, greed and a fear of consequences often get in the way. In most cases, the best way to secure compensation for your injuries is to file a civil lawsuit against the at-fault party.

At this point, we should mention that you can only recover compensation if you can prove that the other party was “more likely than not” negligent and at fault for the crash. This is a lower standard than what is used in criminal court and, therefore, works to the victim’s advantage. That’s about the only thing that does, however. Insurance companies know how to game the system and put the advantage on their side—usually, they do so by tricking the victim into wrecking their own case.

To preserve your right to compensation and save yourself from getting shortchanged, consider working with a bus accident lawyer. At Shaheen & Gordon, P.A., we provide support to clients at every step of the way. We will work to find negligence through a thorough investigation, then use evidence to show it. We’ll also work to find proof of your injuries and the full impact they have had on your life. By building a comprehensive case, you can rest assured that we’re fighting for every cent to which you are entitled.

What Damages Can You Be Compensated for?

Bus accident victims may recover compensation for whatever damages they incurred, that is as long as they can prove it. That’s why it is so crucial to work with an experienced attorney who can identify which damages you suffered and find evidence to back up your claim.

Some examples of the damages our Maine bus accident attorneys have recovered for victims are:

  • Medical bills and expenses
  • Missed time from school
  • Lost wages and benefits
  • Lost earning capacity
  • Pain and suffering
  • Property damage

Are You Eligible? Find Out in a Free Consultation

If the bus accident was caused by negligence—such as bus driver negligence or recklessness on the part of another motorist—victims are often owed compensation. The same is true if a truck company or truck parts manufacturer cut corners, creating a hazard on the road.

Common causes of preventable bus accidents include:

  • Reckless and distracted driving
  • Driving under the influence
  • Fatigued driving
  • Poorly trained employees
  • Defective parts, such as brakes, wheels, and engines

Crash victims are sometimes unaware of their right to compensation because negligence may hide under the surface. If you were injured but weren’t at fault for the accident, it is likely you have a claim. Find out for sure—take advantage of our free consultations.
