Connecticut Bus Accidents Attorneys
Bus owners and operators make their money in the shadow of numerous laws enacted to protect bus passengers. As common carriers, bus companies have a higher duty to provide safe transport for passengers. When private bus companies, school buses, tour buses and mass transit buses lead to injuries in Connecticut, bus passengers have numerous rights and can often successfully recover financial damages.

Our attorney team has over 150 years of combined experience representing injured clients and can offer immediate and effective legal help following bus crashes.
A Recent Case Illustrates Our Effectiveness In Handling Bus Accident Cases
Dozens of seniors were traveling on a tour bus when a truck’s trailer hydroplaned into the bus’s path, severely injuring the bus passengers. Our firm assisted several injured passengers with the following results:
- Our client lost part of her foot and experienced infection complications, phantom pain and prosthesis difficulties. After fully documenting our client’s full loss, we settled the case in mediation for $1.2 million.
- Our client suffered severe leg injuries, the need for extensive surgery and months of hospitalization. Her case was complicated by her husband’s injuries, which were sustained in the same accident, and from his Alzheimer’s disease. We settled this case for $700,000.
- Our client experienced numerous broken bones and organ injuries, including bladder injuries. After painful and expensive therapy, she is now walking and resides in a senior living community. We settled this case prior to trial for $350,000.
Our handling of these cases was reported by national news networks and further illustrates our reputation in the area of bus accidents. For more information regarding your legal rights following bus accident, please contact our firm.
