Understanding Bus Crashes in Denver

When you think of a bus, you think of routines. Predictability. Safety. Surely, buses aren’t causing severe injuries and dangerous accidents regularly?

Unfortunately, that’s not the case. (And if you or a loved one has experienced injuries in a bus accident, you already know that.)

Serious bus accidents in Denver are more common than you might think – and they can happen for many reasons.

Your Road to Justice and Compensation After a Bus Accident in Denver

Filing your Denver personal injury claim will involve several steps, including building the case itself, negotiating with all involved parties, and possibly bringing your case to trial.

Whether you settle or go to court, you need to retain an experienced, empathetic bus accident injury lawyer who will argue on your behalf, present expert testimony, and demonstrate the full extent of your injuries.

At Jordan Law, we pride ourselves on listening to our clients, understanding their needs, and helping them pursuing the right course of action for their unique situations. We can do the same for you.

Building a Strong Bus Accident Case

Building a strong bus accident case in Denver will involve:

  • Conducting a thorough investigation of your accident, which may include consulting accident reconstructionists and speaking with medical experts
  • Gathering all available evidence, which may include interviewing witnesses and delving through mountains of detailed paperwork
  • Establishing liability, which requires deep knowledge of Colorado personal injury law and familiarity with Denver bus accident cases in particular

Your legal team will need to review surveillance footage, hunt down police reports, and speak with the owners of the bus in question to obtain bus maintenance records.

You won’t have the physical or mental health – or the connections and tools necessary – to tackle all of that investigating.

At Jordan Law, we’re excited to get to the bottom of bus accidents, and passionate about pursuing justice for the victims of severe traffic accidents.

Negotiating with Insurance Companies in Bus Accident Claims

If you take away one thing from this page, let it be this:

You do not want to get stuck negotiating with insurance companies solo.

Your insurer may take advantage of the fact that you’re in recovery to swoop in and offer a low settlement.

They may also try to minimize your injuries, pin the blame on you, or play mind games with you to make you think that a lowball offer is generous.

Don’t fall for it.

Better yet, don’t interact with your insurer (or any third-party insurer). Instead, retain an experienced Denver bus accident lawyer to represent you, advocate for your rights, and negotiate as needed to help you pursue maximum compensation.

“Working with us, you’re going to get a firm that pretty much everybody in the state respects. The judges respect us. We’ve had, you know, a pretty good reputation for a long time now. And I think that, you know, that speaks for itself.” – JASON JORDAN

Settling or Taking Your Case to Trial

Aside from determining liability, the #1 question in your accident claim will be this:

Should you settle or go to court?

Settling is easier and less expensive, but litigating your case in a courtroom can help you achieve more compensation. Figuring out which route is right for you and your claim can be difficult.

The important thing is this: You need a bus accident attorney who is ready for court, but won’t push your case to trial if it isn’t strategic to do so.

Handling negotiations deftly so you can reach a successful settlement takes a specific skillset. So does preparing for court – which is a lengthy, meticulous process when done right.

You’re looking for a true advocate, not someone who will take the easy way out (or run recklessly to court in sole pursuit of a big paycheck).

Frequently Asked Bus Accident Questions

Who Can Be Held Liable in a Colorado Bus Crash or Personal Injury Case?

In a Denver bus accident, several different parties can be held liable.

For example, depending on the specifics of your accident, you may be able to consider the following entities responsible for what happened:

  • The bus driver
  • The bus company
  • Maintenance contractors
  • Government entities
  • Negligent drivers

If you can demonstrate that any or all of these parties were liable for the accident (and therefore your injuries), you may be able to pursue damages. An experienced bus incident and injury firm can help you investigate your accident to learn more about the involvement of other people.

How Long Do I Have to File a Bus Accident Claim in Denver?

Per the Colorado Statute of Limitations for personal injury claims, you have two years from the date your accident occurred to file your claim.

While this can seem like a long time, context is everything: It can take months to settle your claim, and potentially much longer if you need to go to court.

Your Denver RTD bus accident lawyer will be familiar with all of the relevant legal deadlines in your case, and will work closely with you to ensure all of those deadlines are met.

Can I Still File a Claim if I Was Partially at Fault for the Accident?

Yes, you can still file a claim even if you were partially at fault for the accident.

(Don’t admit you were partially at fault to anyone, though, unless your bus accident injury attorney says it’s a good idea.)

Colorado is a comparative negligence state. This means people who are partially responsible for accidents are still eligible for compensation — but the amount of compensation available may be reduced by your percentage of fault.

Will My Claim Be Settled Out of Court?

Maybe. If you can achieve a fair amount of compensation out of court and your Denver bus crash and injury lawyer believes the amount offered is fair, settling likely makes sense.

If settlement negotiations are not going well and your Denver bus accident attorneys – based on years of experience with cases just like yours – knows that the other parties are lowballing you, going to court may be a better option.

You need a bus injury lawyer who can do both! When you’re interviewing prospective bus accident attorneys in Denver, talk about their settlement-vs-trial philosophies. You don’t want a Denver RTD bus accident lawyer who rushes to court unnecessarily, but you also don’t want a lawyer who backs down too easily from a fight!

At Jordan Law, we’re comfortable in a courtroom. We’re also committed to doing what’s right for you.
