How an Attorney Can Help You if You’ve Been Hurt in a Bus or Truck Accident
It is important to contact an attorney as soon as possible if you’ve been hurt in a bus or truck accident or if your loved one has been killed in a bus or truck accident. While you technically have three years to file a personal injury lawsuit in Wisconsin, critical evidence can be lost if you do not act quickly.
The police investigate bus and truck accidents, however, police reports may miss evidence that your experienced Wisconsin truck accident lawyer or experienced Wisconsin bus accident lawyer may find. For example, your attorney’s investigation will likely include an inspection of the truck or bus to determine if the vehicle had faulty brakes or if the vehicle failed to comply with federal safety standards. Your attorney will also thoroughly review the bus or truck log books, driver timesheets and personnel information in order to determine if the defendant’s negligence caused your injuries.
A defendant is legally liable for negligence if the defendant owed a duty of care to the victim, if the defendant breached that duty of care by failing to act like a reasonable person would have acted given the circumstances and, if the defendant’s beach of the duty of care caused the victim to sustain injuries that would not have happened but for the defendant’s conduct.
If these elements of negligence are satisfied, then the plaintiff is entitled to recover damages. Damages may include compensation for past and future medical bills, rehabilitation costs, funeral costs, lost income and pain and suffering.
