Dallas Fort Worth Bus Accident Lawyer
When riding along "The T" in Fort Worth or a DART bus in Dallas, you rightfully expect your bus driver to follow all traffic laws and safely arrive at your destination in a well-maintained vehicle. While the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex features countless public transportation options used by thousands of residents each day, the potential still exists for an accident to happen. Bus and light rail crashes can cause serious injuries. If you've been involved in a bus crash in Fort Worth, or been hurt on the Trinity commuter rail while on your way to Dallas-Fort Worth International Airport, contact Coby L. Wooten, Attorney at Law, P.C.
What should I do if I'm injured in a bus accident in Texas?
The most important thing to do after a bus accident is to have a doctor, emergency medical technician (EMT) or another medical professional evaluate you. You could have a serious injury and not realize it, especially if you have a life-threatening internal injury. If you feel healthy enough, take photographs of your accident. And get the full names and phone numbers of other passengers on your bus. Eyewitness testimony can often make a dramatic difference when dealing with insurance companies after a bus accident. Then contact us. We can work with you on your bus accident from start to finish.
