There is absolutely nothing that you could have done to avoid what has happened. A Transit Authority of River City (TARC) bus caused an accident with your vehicle and you were hurt. Now, you are faced with decisions about what to do next.
Should Your Next Step Be Legal Action?
Not every TARC bus accident needs to result in legal action. However, if you have been involved in such a crash then you might want to consider a legal case if:
- You needed medical attention for your injuries. This may indicate that your injuries were significant enough to make it cost effective to pursue a legal case.
- You missed work because of your injuries. The only way to be fairly compensated for your lost income may be through an accident lawsuit.
- A settlement has been offered for your injuries. If a settlement has been offered then TARC may recognize that it has some responsibility for your injuries. Do not accept a settlement without speaking to an attorney. If you do so then you may be forever barred from seeking additional compensation in the future.
- You worry about whether you are doing the right thing. Often, bus injury victims find they lay awake at night or spend a lot of time searching the Internet for answers to their questions. Perhaps you have been wondering, too: How will I pay my bills if I can’t work? What happens if I can’t pay my medical bills after an accident? Can I change my mind and file an accident case in a few years? If so, you should consider filing a lawsuit now before your time to do so expires.
Of course, before you file a lawsuit you are going to need additional information.
