We Can Help You Recover Compensation for a Bus Injury in the Fairfax Area
Buses are a key component of the transportation system in the DC metro area. However, because buses are bigger, more powerful, and more destructive than most other vehicles on the road, they can injure people in a variety of ways. We can help you build a bus accident case so that you may recover compensation for your injuries.
Injuries Involving Bus Passengers
If you were a passenger on a bus that crashed, we can conduct an investigation to determine who was liable, whether it was the bus driver, the bus manufacturer, or another driver on the road. Our legal team will then pursue compensation from them and their insurance company.
Injuries Involving Drivers or Passengers of Other Vehicles
If you were driving or riding in a vehicle that was struck by a bus, we can help you pursue compensation even if the police report indicates you were partly responsible for the accident.
Injuries Involving Bicyclists or Pedestrians
We can also help you pursue compensation against multiple liable parties if you were riding a bicycle or walking when you were struck by a bus.
No matter your situation, we want to evaluate it and determine how we can help. Call the Parrish Law Group, PLLC, for a free consultation today at (571) 229-1800.
We Identify All Potentially Liable Parties for Your Fairfax Bus Injury
In order for you to receive fair compensation, it is advised to identify and go after every party who was partially or fully liable for your injury. Without a thorough and diligent investigation of the accident, there may be liable parties who go unnoticed and thus escape liability.
At the Parrish Law Firm, PLLC, we have a dedicated and diligent investigative staff that will get to work starting on day one. Our team will go over the details of your accident, look at the evidence, and make a list of every party who might bear liability.
When fighting for bus accident victims in the Fairfax area, we have often identified the following as liable parties:
The Bus Driver
If the bus driver did something negligent behind the wheel, such as engaging in distracting behavior or violating a traffic law, they are likely liable for the resulting accident. All drivers must fulfill a duty of care toward other motorists and pedestrians on the road. A bus driver’s negligence is a violation of this duty of care, and particularly toward the bus passengers who paid for transportation.
The Bus Company
Most bus drivers work for a company, which has vicarious liability for the actions of its employees in accident cases. A Fairfax bus accident lawyer can, therefore, go after the bus company for monetary compensation for your accident injuries.
If the bus was part of a public transportation network run by the city or state, a government entity may share in the liability, which makes the legal process more complex. That said, the Parrish Law Firm, PLLC, is equipped to pursue any responsible party for compensation on your behalf.
We Help You Recover Fair Compensation for Your Bus Accident Injuries
After a bus accident, you may be left with severe bodily injuries, an inability to work, and lots of physical and emotional pain. At the Parrish Law Firm, PLLC, we believe it is our duty to fight for your rights so that you are paid fair compensation for the costs you have incurred, including those that cannot be quantified in dollar terms, such as pain and inconvenience.
We work hard to take on the insurance companies and extract a fair settlement. We will not hesitate to go to court if they do not agree to compensate you appropriately. You may be eligible for a monetary award that includes money for:
- Medical expenses (both current and future)

- Loss of enjoyment of life
- And more, if you qualify
