Bus Accidents

Public Transportation Accidents

Bus accidents involving city buses, tour buses or school buses have the potential to cause multiple severe injuries. At Clark, Hunt, Ahern & Embry, our Boston area attorneys assist clients who were injured in mass transit accidents throughout the Commonwealth of Massachusetts and beyond. Our attorneys possess extensive trial experience and in-depth knowledge of personal injury law, giving us an understanding of the challenges involved in taking legal action against public entities and large transportation companies.

Our lawyers represent clients who were injured on buses. We also develop wrongful death cases for families of those killed in bus accidents. We help potential clients learn whether they are eligible to file claims. It is important to determine eligibility as soon as possible so as not to miss the tight deadlines that apply to some of these cases. In both instances, we work closely with clients to understand fully how the accident and the resulting injuries have affected them and their families.

Our law firm employs skilled investigators and technical specialists who help us obtain information and evidence. These experts photograph the scene, interview witnesses and evaluate the treatment proposed by the treating physicians. This information helps us determine the best strategy for a particular client's specific circumstances.
