How to Get a Fair Recovery for a TARC Bus Accident Injury

Bus Crashes and Car Crashes Are Not the Same Thing

No. Regardless of the bus driver’s safe driving record, what matters is what happened in this specific accident. The driver of the Transit Authority of River City (TARC) bus owed you a duty of care. It was his job to operate the bus with reasonable care. If he failed to do that and you were hurt because of the bus driver’s negligence then you may be able to recover damages for your bus accident injuries even if it was this driver’s first accident.

Don’t Let the Driver, or TARC, Confuse You

Neither the bus driver nor TARC wants to be liable for the accident. They do not want to pay damages for your accident injuries. If you take their word about the accident then you may not be able recover, but you don’t need to accept what they say without finding out the truth.

You have the right to consult with a personal injury lawyer who knows what Kentucky law says about Louisville bus accidents. You have the right to find out the truth about your possible recovery and to take actions to protect it.
