Ottawa Personal Injury Lawyers for Bus Accidents & OC Transpo Claims
Have you or someone you know been injured as a passenger on a city bus? If you’ve been in a bus accident, you may be entitled to medical benefits. In addition, you may be entitled to obtain compensation for lost income, as well as for pain and suffering as a result of the accident.
To properly assess your entitlement to compensation for injuries sustained in a bus or OC Transpo accident, it is important to consult with a skilled personal injury lawyer as soon as possible. At Tierney Stauffer LLP, our lawyers have over 35 years’ experience seeking compensation for clients injured in bus accidents. Our unique approach to personal injury law focuses on our clients’ long-term needs over short-term settlements, ensuring clients are taken care of into the future.
Causes and Impacts of Bus Accident Injuries
Bus accidents are rare compared to those with other motor vehicles such as cars and trucks. When they do occur, the results can be disastrous. Take for example the tragic Humboldt Broncos bus collision in 2018 or that of the Via Rail train and an OC Transpo bus in 2013. Injuries were extensive and multiple deaths occurred, which meant survivors also had to cope with post-traumatic stress, anxiety and other issues combined with their injuries. Many families made sacrifices to attend to their injured loved ones, and those injured in such accidents tend to suffer themselves financially. From a loss of current employment to an inability to work again in their trained field due to long-term physical or mental trauma, the ordeals faced by survivors of bus accidents can be very intense, often involving long-term rehabilitation to cope with a new way of life.
