A collision between your car and a much larger bus can leave you with serious injuries and extensive property damage. At Farmer & Morris Law, PLLC, our Morganton bus accident lawyer will help you prove the cause of the accident and identify the right party to pursue for financial recovery. We handle every aspect of your case for you so you can concentrate on getting better.
Our legal team will collect evidence that proves your right to compensation and submit it to the appropriate insurance company. We will handle all case-related communication, including the negotiation process. If an agreeable settlement cannot be reached, we will take your case to court. Our goal is to help you obtain the best possible outcome of your case.
Types of Evidence We Use to Support Your Bus Accident Claim
Personal injury cases are usually settled out of court. This happens when the evidence in your case indicates fault and liability. Evidence collection can include statements from available witnesses and proof of your lost income. To steer your bus accident case toward settlement versus trial, we also obtain all of the following evidence for you.
Your bus accident report is a key piece of evidence in your case. It will tell our team how, when, and where the accident occurred. It will also note potential causes and contributing factors and may contain notes, diagrams, and photos that support your case. It will help us comply with the statute of limitations, note the damage to your vehicle, and indicate the impact points between your car and the bus.
We obtain your medical records and bills because they help the at-fault party and their legal and insurance representative understand the extent of your injuries and the toll they took on your health. Along with your written prognosis, they also create a detailed picture of the past, present, and future costs of your injuries until you reach maximum medical improvement.
Photos And Videos
We canvass the accident scene and surrounding area for photos and video footage to bolster and support your case. These can come from bystanders in the form of smartphone imagery. They can also come from residential and commercial security and surveillance footage. We also locate any available dashcam footage from the bus or other vehicles.
The recollections and observations of impartial witnesses can go a long way in supporting your case. Our law firm will locate and interview witnesses while their memories are still vivid. Multiple witnesses can provide varying views from multiple vantage points.
We do more than compile your evidence. We organize it into a compelling evidence file that proves the at-fault party’s negligence and liability. We also use the evidence we collect to steer the settlement negotiation process.
