Minnesota Bus Accident Lawyer

Every time you get onto a bus, you are putting your life in the hands of another driver. Although bus drivers are highly trained individuals, they cannot promise you a safe ride every time. Things happen on the road that may be beyond their control. Bus collisions and other accidents can have devastating consequences for the driver, the passengers and the other motorists on the road. If you or someone you love has been injured or killed in a bus accident, then contact McEwen & Kestner, PLLC right away to discuss your options.

Bus Accident Instances

There are a number of accidents that can occur in a bus including the following:

  • bus and car collision
  • bus and pedestrian accident
  • passenger in a bus accident
  • bicycle and bus collision
  • bus and truck collision
  • reckless driving and speeding
  • mechanical defects or manufacturing problems
  • driving under the influence
  • negligent driving

Who is to Blame?

If you are a passenger on a bus accident or if you are the victim of a negligent driver, whether in another car, on a bicycle or on foot, then you are most likely not to blame for the accident. We can assess your case and determine who is responsible for the accident and who should pay for the emotional and physical damages incurred.

  • The owner of the bus
  • A reckless or negligent driver on the road
  • The bus driver
  • The bus company
  • The bus manufacturer
  • The mechanic working on the bus

Bus Accidents and Children

The sad reality is that many bus accidents will involve children, especially school bus accidents. If your child has been involved or killed due to a bus accident, do not suffer in silence. Our lawyers will not be able to turn back time but we can help you move forward by getting the answers, justice and financial compensation you deserve.

Bus Accident Injuries

Bus accidents often result in serious injuries and fatalities due to the sheer impact of a commercial bus. If you are in a car or truck and are hit by a bus, you will most likely suffer from serious injuries. Furthermore, if you are riding in a bus and crash into something, you will also sustain serious injuries, especially as most buses do not have seatbelts or air bags. Some of the common injuries we see from bus accidents include the following:

  • permanent disability
  • ear and eye injuries
  • skull fractures and other traumatic brain injuries
  • whip lash, neck and shoulder injuries
  • back pain
  • paralysis
  • severe burns
  • psychological trauma

If you or someone you love has been a victim of a bus accident, regardless of whether you were hit by a bus or riding in a bus, then you need to contact a qualified personal injury attorney right away.

“There is no doubt that Peter Kestner, along with the Attorney’s and Staff at McEwen & Kestner, PLLC are specialists in Auto Injury accidents! In 2010 I was involved in an auto accident, and required treatments in many different states. While I personally took care of many of the negations with the insurance company, I was completely uncomfortable with settling my case. None of the treatments could determine the cause of the semi-permanent damage to my shoulder due to the accident. There were no diagnoses, and nowhere to turn when it came time to settle. That’s when I began the search for a lawyer, and found McEwen and Kestner!
Their expertise made the experience hassle-free, hopeful and honest. They genuinely understood my pain and suffering. After giving them the name of the insurance company, the names of each doctor, and a little background information Peter took over! With a simple monthly check-in from me, a demand letter went out for a settlement in a matter of months.
I was blown away by the results! Within just 2 weeks of negotiation, Peter landed a settlement rate with the insurance company, while keeping me involved via quick 5-10 minute phone calls! The settlement amount was 90% more than I anticipated; I felt relieved, and adequately compensated.
Less than a month later, my check settlement check has processed through their office and is on its way to me! ”
