A collision with a public or private bus can lead to injuries, property damage, and a plethora of financial expenses and losses. In a bus accident case, negligence can be the responsibility of the bus driver, their employer, or the company that manufactured the bus or its parts. Our Tryon bus accident lawyer will help you identify the at-fault party and pursue financial compensation.
We make sure your recoverable damages are accurately documented and calculated, so your case is not undervalued or underpaid. Our legal team will also negotiate with the appropriate insurance company for the best possible outcome for you. At Farmer & Morris Law, PLLC, our goal is to build a solid case for you so you can focus on your physical recovery.
How Our Lawyers Will Handle Your Bus Accident Case
According to Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) statistics, buses typically account for 12% of motor vehicle accidents annually. Therefore, when we handle your case, we start by identifying the type of bus that collided with your vehicle.
Bus types include:
- School buses
- City transit buses
- Party buses
- Private coach buses
Once we identify the bus, we turn to their insurance company with your request for financial compensation. In representing you, we will:
Handle all letters, emails, and phone calls on your behalf. We also handle evidence collection, form submissions, and the negotiation process. In addition, our team will assign a financial value to your injuries and fight for the best possible outcome for your case.
When we say we stop at nothing in our fight to recover damages for you, we mean it. While you focus on your physical recovery, we fight for the compensation you need and deserve to restore your health, repair or replace your damaged vehicle, and start putting your life back together.
Your Crash Report Is an Important Part of Your Evidence File
The accident report that the police file can provide us with a wealth of information. We use it to find out the type of bus involved, the bus company’s name, and their insurance provider.
It will also give our us:
- Relevant contact information and details
- Witness statements and observations
- The accident’s causes and contributing factors
It will also tell us the date, time, and location of the accident, provide us with notes and diagrams from the investigating officer and note additional vital details. We obtain the report for you and do not tax you and your family with evidence collection.

Your Time is Limited to File a Bus Accident Lawsuit in North Carolina
North Carolina limits the time you have to settle your case or file a lawsuit against the at-fault party. In Tryon, you generally have up to three years to file a personal injury lawsuit, according to G.S. § 1-52. This is the statute we rely on if you or someone you love was injured in the accident. In personal injury cases, the statutory clock starts running on the date the accident occurred.
Similarly, the state gives you up to two years to file a wrongful death lawsuit, according to G.S. § 1-53. This is the statute we rely on if someone you love was fatally injured in the accident. In wrongful death cases, the statutory clock starts running on the date of your loved one’s demise.
If the bus you were injured by is city-owned, operated or leased, we also respect the required notification deadline. We will ensure your lawsuit is filed on time and that your right to recover damages is never at risk.
