Understand your options when a school bus accident occurs

school-bus.jpgFor most Seattle children the school year is in full swing. Each morning children across the city leave their homes to board a school bus. While on these buses, the children and their parents trust that the driver is acting as safely as possible to get them to school in one piece. For most people, a school bus is nothing more than a mode of transportation, but this bus has a great responsibility in our city. Children are some of our most precious assets and needed to be treated with the highest care.

When your doctor wants to close your case before you're better

I want to fire my lawyer

fired.jpgSeveral times each year, I get a call from someone who was injured in an accident, hired a lawyer, and now wants to fire his lawyer and hire me. The most common reason people give for wanting to change lawyers is lack of communication. They tell me stories of trying for weeks to speak to their lawyers without success. They leave messages and speak to case managers, legal assistants, and paralegals. They even send letters, but they never hear back from their attorneys.

DO I HAVE TO PAY TO MEET WITH A LAWYER?

meet with lawyer.jpgEvery day I get phone calls from people who have been injured in some kind of accident. Often the first question they have for me is how much it will cost to meet with me to discuss their case. I guess it shouldn't surprise me; most people don't really pay attention to personal injury lawyers until they need one. The answer is simple:

Washington school bus inspections

With fall right around the corner, many Washington parents are starting to make decisions about where their children will go to school in the fall. While many factors can go into making this decision, transportation often weighs heavily on parents' minds. Parents need to know that their children can get to and from school in a safe and efficient manner. In many cases, parents may need to rely on a school bus.

How common are school bus accidents?

While many Washington residents are out enjoying the long, warm summer days, others are already beginning to think about the back-to-school season. For many Washington parents, this time of year means they need to make decisions about how their children will get to school. Some will choose a school bus. Many may question -- how often do school bus accidents occur?

A bus accident can be scary and may require legal protection

When a person is injured by a bus, it can be extremely scary. People may walk away from an accident happy just to have survived. Sadly, many people are not that lucky. Whether a person suffered injuries as a passenger on the bus, in a car or as a pedestrian, it can be difficult for them to know where to go from here.

Staying safe near transit buses

In large cities like Seattle, mass transit systems are extremely important. City busses allow large groups of people to easily and cost-effectively move around the city. Without a proper mass transit system, many people who could not afford cars could be stranded and others would be stuck dealing with even larger amounts of traffic. While city buses provide a valuable service to the residents of Seattle, they can also pose some danger. These large buses can easily cause serious injuries to pedestrians and other drivers should a bus accident occur.

How can you tell if a coach bus is safe?

When people think about traveling by bus, they may think about a school bus. While a school bus is an important method of travel for many of Washington State's children, other buses are frequently used by Washington residents. From city buses to coach buses, bus travel is important for many residents on a day-to-day basis. Therefore, it is important that this method of transportation is safe. Just like with other modes of transportation, the risk of serious accidents increases if proper safety measures are not taken.
