It is not always possible to travel by personal vehicle. Residents and tourists in Seattle and elsewhere may rely on public transportation to get to and from their destinations. Whether it is to go to the store, work, school or sight seeing, buses are often utilized. While these are convenient ways to get around, they are also prone to certain risks and dangers on the roadways. If a bus driver is not driving safely or the bus is not properly maintained, this could result in a serious bus crash, causing passengers to suffer severe and even fatal injuries.
Public transportation is an important and heavily relied on form of transportation by residents and visitors of Seattle; however, there can be operation errors, mechanical failures and other hazardous conditions. This can impact the safety of passengers and, ultimately, cause an accident.

This can leave passengers and their loved ones in a difficult situation as they deal with the aftermath of the accident.

This could help a victim address medical bills, rehabilitation, pain and suffering, lost wages and other damages.
