Every day, thousands of people rely on public transportation to get to and from work and school. Unfortunately, accidents involving TARC (Transit Authority of River City) or JCPS (Jefferson County Public Schools) buses can and do happen.
When you have been injured in an accident involving public transportation, it can be difficult to know what to do. Here are the steps you should take, following this type of accident.
- If you have been injured in the accident, seek medical attention immediately. Getting medical attention as soon as possible is important to your health, and it will also provide you with a record of the exact injuries you sustained.
- Following the accident, file a police report. When speaking with police officers, be sure to give them all of your basic information, and make sure all of the details of the accident have been recorded. This will make it easy for an attorney to put a case together, if one is needed.
- Next, consult with a personal injury attorney. It can be overwhelming to try and deal with things on your own. At Kaiman & Crahan, we will provide you with a free initial consultation, where we will review your case and answer any questions you may have. We will help you through the process and work hard to make sure that you get the compensation that you deserve.
