Legal Help for the Injured.
Millions of people daily rely on buses to get to work, school, or while traveling. According to the Federal Motor Safety Administration (FMCSA), over 860,000 buses (e.g., school buses, charter/tour buses, commuter buses, and motor coaches) are registered in the United States. The FMCSA requires special training for bus drivers as well as regular inspections, but devastating bus accidents still happen.
Bus accidents are usually complicated, with several parties involved and large insurance companies looking to protect their profits and bus drivers. It takes skill and insight to navigate a bus accident claim or lawsuit. Fortunately, Kisling, Nestico & Redick has the experience and resources to hold the right party accountable and obtain maximum compensation after a bus accident.
