A Look Back At A Recent Bus Accident Client|PA NJ Car Bus Accident Lawyer

There was a trucking accident in Prospect Park, Delaware County last Thursday. A CVS tractor trailer got stuck under a bridge.  Luckily, no one was hurt.

According to the authorities, the truck driver passed 4 four warning signs indicating the bridge's low clearance before approaching the bridge.

Seeing this news reminded me of a very nice woman we represented who was catastrophically injured in a bus accident in Syracuse, New York.  She boarded the bus in Philadelphia, PA and was on her way to Toronto, Canada when the double decker bus struck an overhead bridge because it was too high. 

At the time of the bus accident, she was sitting on the top level of the bus, which "peeled" off as the bus attempted to go under the bridge.  Tragically, 4 passengers died, and my client was catastrophically injured as a result.

Like the CVS truck driver, the bus driver in my client's accident also passed signs that indicated the bridge's low clearance.  The bus driver was negligent because he drove the bus under a bridge that did not have enough clearance despite warning signs. 

As I said before, my client sustained catastrophic orthopedic injuries that changed her life.  She can no longer enjoy the more physical activities she used to do such as exercising or taking long walks.  Moreover, she sustained a permanent brain injury that prevents her from working at her old job.

Because of the injuries she sustained, we made the following damage claims:

  • pain and suffering;
  • lost wages;
  • future lost wages;
  • medical bills;
  • future medical bills; and
  • other out-of-pocket expenses, such as hiring someone to clean her house.

If you or someone you love was in a truck or bus accident, you or your loved one should not have to suffer because of the driver's negligence.  Talk to a car and truck accident lawyer in Pennsylvania or New Jersey to discuss your legal rights.  You may have injuries that may impact you for the rest of your life.  You want to make sure your future and interests are protected.
