Elsmere Bus Accident Attorneys

Helping People Injured Due to Driver Negligence & Defective Equipment on Buses

With the cost of gas continually creeping up, more and more people are turning to mass transit, including public buses, to get to work, school and other places. Though riding a bus is generally a pretty safe experience, there are a variety of circumstances in which you can suffer serious injury, even death, when you are a passenger on a bus. In addition, you can be at significant risk from a bus as a pedestrian, bicyclist or while in another vehicle on the road. If you have been hurt in any way because of an accident involving a bus, you want an experienced and aggressive lawyer to help you pursue full and fair compensation for your losses.

At the office of Michael J. Hood, LLC, we bring more than 31 years of experience to personal injury victims in Delaware. We take a straightforward approach with our clients, always telling you what you need to know even if it’s not what you want to hear. We’ll listen carefully to the details of your case so that we can give you a realistic assessment of the value of your claim, as well as your prospects for success. Attorney Hood will work with you throughout the legal process, keeping you fully informed of all developments in your case, as well as your options, so that you can make good decisions about your future.

Our Bus Accident Injury Practice

We aggressively fight for the rights of people who have suffered any type of injury involving a public or private bus, including:

  • Injuries suffered as a passenger on the bus as a result of the negligence of the bus operator. This can include a collision between the bus and another vehicle or injuries caused by sudden starts or stops, or when the bus driver takes a corner at too high a rate of speed
  • Injuries sustained as a driver or passenger in another vehicle, or as a bicyclist or pedestrian struck by a bus
  • Injuries caused by the negligence of the bus company, including carelessness in the hiring, training or supervision of bus drivers or other employees, or failure to perform necessary or routine maintenance

We handle serious and catastrophic injury claims, as well as wrongful death actions. We will help you pursue damages for lost wages and income, loss of companionship or consortium, medical bills, and physical pain and suffering.
