Cleveland Bus Accident Attorney

Injured Bus Riders and Victims of Bus Collisions

Bus passengers are vulnerable to injury in a crash because of the lack of protections. Pedestrians and motorists are vulnerable in collisions because of the weight and height of the bus. Whatever the scenario, the personal injury lawyers of Bashein & Bashein can capably assert your rights to compensation.

We handle accidents involving RTA buses in the Cleveland area, and other buses and shuttles in surrounding counties of northeast Ohio. Our attorneys are familiar with the rules and limitations of claims against the Greater Cleveland Regional Transit Authority or the Metro Regional Transit Authority in Akron.

If the negligence of a bus driver or another motorist caused your serious injury, contact us today for a free consultation. We have practiced in this area of the law since 1949.

Cleveland and Akron Public Transportation Injury Attorneys

Bashein & Bashein can represent you in any bus-related accident:

  • Pedestrians struck by buses
  • Occupants of cars struck by buses
  • Bus passengers injured in collisions caused by other drivers
  • Bus riders injured through bus driver negligence
  • Children injured in school bus accidents

We have the resources to hire professional investigators as necessary to prove that the bus driver was distracted, inattentive, fatigued, intoxicated or violated traffic laws; that there were mechanical issues with the bus; or that another motorist was at fault for the crash.

Claims against the RTA are subject to caps on damages, and subject to offsets of compensation from collateral sources such as your health insurance or a third party. We sort it all out for you, and there are no attorney fees unless we recover damages.
