Almost all Portland bus accidents are preventable. They occur most often when a bus driver fails to fulfill his or her duties of care, such as by texting and driving or ignoring pedestrian rights-of-way. They can also arise due to bus company negligence, including poor bus maintenance. As personal injury lawyers, it is our mission to root out negligence in our community and create a safer city for everyone. We do this by helping injured bus accident victims identify the cause of the crash to hold the right party accountable.
Driving while intoxicated
Speeding or reckless driving
Failing to yield
Lack of bus driver training
Poorly maintained bus
Bus part malfunctions
Defective vehicle parts
Inadequate security at bus stops
If negligence or a wanton disregard for others’ safety caused your Portland bus accident, the at-fault party may owe you financial compensation. The attorneys at Paulson Coletti Trial Attorneys PC can review your case to help you identify the liable party. Then, if we accept you as a client, we can go up against the correct party in pursuit of compensation. We have the experience and skill to take on all types of defendants, including the City of Portland. We will do what is necessary to secure you the best possible results.
If you were injured in a bus accident in Portland, do not wait to seek advice from a personal injury attorney. Waiting too long could put you at risk of missing your statute of limitations and losing the ability to file. In Oregon, you have a maximum of two years from the date of your bus accident to file a personal injury claim, in most cases. You could have less time, however, if you were injured while riding a public bus.
A public transportation accident often involves the government as a defendant. If you are bringing a claim against the government for an accident involving a public bus, such as a TriMet bus or public school bus, you have only 180 days to file your initial claim. Missing your deadline generally means giving up your right to demand damages from the responsible party. It is critical, therefore, to contact an attorney immediately after a bus accident in Portland.
Everyone who has been wrongly injured deserves a passionate advocate who is committed to representing their best interests. At Paulson Coletti Trial Attorneys PC, we have three. In every case we take on, we put our clients first, selecting cases we truly believe in and believe we can win.
