Bus accidents are something most military passengers don't expect. In fact, like all of us, they place their trust in the bus driver or private bus company. Some soldiers, sailors, and Marines think they can't sue.
So they rarely reach out to a lawyer. As a matter of fact, most vets recall government immunity, and the UCMJ prevent suing the U.S. military. But in some cases, a maker or private bus company remains outside the cloak of sovereignty. So you need to keep reading and learn your rights. Roger that?
When a military bus accident occurs, it is a harrowing event for everyone involved. So the passengers on the bus, the bus driver, and victims in other vehicles all become victims. The fact, estimates show between 15,000 and 21,000 people become bus accident victims annually.
Also, deaths have been as high as 21 innocents per year. Injuries in a military bus accident can be significant for the passengers. And this remains true even when a passenger believes they might not have been injured. In fact, they need full medical eval.
Above all, tests should include the head, back, and spinal cord. In any case, injuries to these body parts might not be apparent at the accident scene. Last, the injured passenger should contact a reputable bus accident attorney as soon as possible. At this point, it remains vital to have an experienced military bus accident attorney by your side. These members of the California State Bar will know the statutes of limitations to file a legal claim.
Also, better firms have the resources to investigate the accident. Incidentally, the time limitations to sue government entities are usually shorter. So that means the lawsuit must get filed within a shortened amount of time.
