I have been injured in a bus accident. What do I do now? | Shapiro, Washburn & Sharp

If you have been a victim of a bus accident, the first and immediate thing you should do is seek medical attention. This is critical even if you think you haven’t been injured. It is not uncommon for injury symptoms to be delayed and the insurance company could use a delay in medical treatment to deny your injury claim.

Once you have seen a medical provider, your next step should be to contact a Virginia bus accident attorney. Bus accident claims can be complex, especially if the vehicle involved is owned by a municipality. An attorney can ensure you receive the compensation you are entitled to for your injuries.
