Generally, it won’t have much, if any, effect on your recovery. Your legal right to make a fair recovery after a Transit Authority of River City (TARC) bus accident on Bardstown Road, Shelbyville Road, or another Louisville area road is the same whether you were the only one hurt or whether everyone on the bus was injured.
What You May Recover
You may be able to recover for the specific injuries that you suffered regardless of who else may have been hurt. For example, you may be able to recover for your past, current, and future:
- Medical expenses
- Lost income
- Out-of-pocket costs
- Other damages
The amount that you can recover is dependent on your unique injuries and is independent of anyone else’s injuries. However, if multiple people were hurt in a TARC bus crash then there may be a way to share some of the discovery costs or other expenses related to litigation. Whether that is possible and if so what effect it would have on your recovery should be discussed with your lawyer.
