When someone is injured on a bus, the person may file a claim under the Texas Tort Claims Act. However, there are monetary limits to the amount of compensation, per person and per accident.
The city may not be the only source of compensation for injuries sustained in bus accidents. Depending on the situation, compensation may be possible through bus manufacturers, uninsured motorist policies, outside contractors responsible for bus maintenance, and other sources. We can investigate your claim to uncover all possible sources of compensation.
In Texas, the statute of limitations for injury claims is two years. However, the Texas Tort Claims Act also has a notice requirement and each city has its own deadline for notification of your intention to file a lawsuit. For this reason, we encourage you to contact us to make sure you meet all requirements and deadlines. During your free initial consultation, Attorney Brian Gutierrez will evaluate your claim and explain the legal process.
