South Carolina Bus Accident Lawyer
Bus Accident Lawyers
With the growing number of tourists, travelers, and residents coming to South Carolina, the demand for more buses also grows. With this influx of people and buses comes the inevitability of bus accidents. Due to the possible high volume of passengers aboard, it's safe to assume multiple people have been injured following a bus accident. A careless bus driver can cause a bus accident, but the driver of a passenger car can also be at fault for causing a bus to crash. Whether you are an injured passenger or driver, the professional personal injury attorneys of Joe and Martin Law Firm have experience in representing bus accident victims to ensure their full compensation for all damages due to medical expenses, rehab, pain and suffering, and lost wages.
Injuries sustained from a collision with a bus can often be severe and can cause extensive damage. These injuries could require EMT treatment and a trip to the emergency room. This type of treatment can can be very expensive, but should always be available to the victim(s) regardless of cost. Our attorneys can see to it that you receive optimum medical treatment at no immediate expense to you, should you ever find yourself the victim of a bus accident. We can handle all medical expenses on your behalf and you won't pay until we recover compensation for you.
Bus Accident Injuries
In order to obtain full compensation for our clients, the attorneys at Joe and Martin will collect testimony from medical experts regarding the full extent and duration of your respective medical treatment and rehabilitation. Injuries common to bus accident victims include:
- Concussions and other brain injuries

Determining Fault and Negligence in a Bus Accident
At Joe and Martin Law Firm, we use our experience and knowledge, as well as the services of professional accident investigators to gather evidence about your bus accident. These specialist use evidence such as photos and video footage of the crash, witness testimony, and accident scene models to prove the fault of the negligent party.

Some of the common acts of negligence related to bus accidents include failure to properly signal before a lane change or turn, distracted or careless driving by the bus driver or driver of the other vehicle, and failure to yield right-of-way to pedestrian traffic.
