Washington, DC Bus Accident Lawyer

Have You Been Injured in a Bus Accident in Washington, DC?

Washingtonian Magazine called founding partner Pat Regan the Washington, DC "lawyer you call when you want to sue WMATA." Throughout his career, Pat Regan, has handled more than 25 bus and rail cases worth tens of millions of dollars in damages.

The Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority (WMATA) operates over 1,500 buses that cover 325 routes in Washington, DC, Maryland, and Virginia. Thousands of commuters rely on these buses and trust that they will provide safe riding between destinations.

Too frequently driver error, poor maintenance, and other negligence cause bus accidents, which can result in devastating personal injuries for passengers as well as other motorists, pedestrians, and/or cyclists. Bus accident victims often require specialized care, including long-term physical and psychological treatment. Worse, claims against quasi-government agencies like WMATA can be notoriously complex.

What Are Common Bus Accident Injuries?

The personal injuries caused by a bus accident can be extensive and serious. First, buses are much larger and heavier than typical vehicles. If a bus crashes into a car, the car will likely sustain much more damage than the bus. The same is true of accidents involving pedestrians or cyclists. Second, bus passengers typically do not wear seatbelts and may stand if the bus is crowded. In the event of an impact, bus riders could fall or be thrown into seats, windows, or other passengers.

Some of the most common types of bus accident injuries include:

  • Traumatic brain injuries. A crash, slip and fall, or any type of Metro accident can cause a severe concussion or traumatic brain injury. This can cause lifelong disabilities, including paralysis and cognitive impairment.
  • Neck and spinal cord injuries. Motorists and bus passengers may suffer spinal cord damage in an accident. This may result in full or partial paralysis and usually requires extensive treatment.
  • Disfigurement. Lacerations from an accident, especially injuries to the face, may cause permanent disfigurement.
  • Muscle, nerve and tissue damage. Depending on the circumstances, deep lacerations, broken bones, and other injuries may permanently damage nerves, muscles, and tissue.
  • Loss of limb. A Metro accident may cause or necessitate the amputation of one or more limbs. These injuries are severely disabling and may cause severe blood loss and/or wrongful death.
  • Wrongful death. Bus accidents can be particularly deadly for pedestrians and cyclists. However, bus passengers and other motorists may also suffer fatal injuries in the event of a crash.

For more than four decades, the Washington, DC bus accident lawyers at Regan Zambri Long PLLC have been helping victims and their families recover compensation for injuries like these.
