Casino Tour Bus Accident Attorneys If you have been injured in a casino bus accident, you may have a claim and be entitled to compensation. This compensation may include medical expenses, lost wages, and other past, present, and future economic and non-economic losses. If a loved one has been killed in a casino bus accident, you may have a legitimate wrongful death claim. Many casino tour buses have video cameras which may have valuable information about the crash, or the events that led up to the crash. Additionally, there are laws governing the amount of time a lawsuit can be filed. As such, it is essential to contact a qualified personal injury attorney to discuss the facts and circumstances of your case as soon as possible if a casino bus accident occurs.

Do I Need A Casino Tour Bus Accident Lawyer? If you have been injured in a casino tour bus accident, there is no legal requirement for you to hire a lawyer before seeking financial compensation. However, you won’t be able to recover all the compensation you’re entitled to under California law if you don’t hire a lawyer to handle your casino bus accident case. It was found by a Martindale-Nolo survey that injury victims who hire lawyers receive an average of $77,600 worth of compensation. The same survey found that injury victims who don’t hire lawyers receive only an average of $17,600 worth of compensation. The survey found that those who hire lawyers end up with about three times as much compensation even after taking attorney fees into account. Why do injury victims who hire lawyers receive more compensation? It’s because of how California law handles enforcement of liability in traffic accident claims. You see, under California law, those who injure others via negligence, or a lack of reasonable care, are financially liable for those injuries. In practice, this typically means their insurance company is liable for those injuries. So, in the case of a casino tour bus accident, it will typically mean the casino tour bus company’s insurance company who is liable. However, this liability is not enforced through criminal law. It is enforced through civil law. This means that if an insurance company refuses to offer you fair compensation for your injuries, your only legal recourse is to sue them over their low ball offer. If you don’t have a lawyer, of course, the insurance company knows you can’t win such a lawsuit. So, if you don’t have an attorney, the insurance company representing the casino tour bus company is simply going to offer you a low ball offer and dare you to sue them over it. However, by hiring lawyers with a track record of success handling casino bus accident cases, lawyers like the attorneys at Nadrich & Cohen, you send a message to the insurance company that you can sue them over a low ball offer and win. When a tour bus company’s insurance company receives a letter of representation from Nadrich & Cohen, they know that their choices are as follows: Pay the injury victim what they are entitled to under California law, up to policy limits Take the case to court, lose, and pay the injury victim what they’re entitled to in addition to expensive legal fees The insurance company knows it’s in its best interest to pay you a fair amount out of court when they see you’re represented by us. Hiring Nadrich & Cohen is the best way to ensure you receive fair compensation for your injuries. In addition, insurance companies are truly desperate to avoid paying injury victims what they deserve in order to preserve their own profit margin. They’re so desperate to preserve their profit margins that they won’t hesitate to resort to dirty tricks like trying to trick injury victims into saying things they can exploit to pay them less or nothing at all. If you try to handle your claim yourself, the insurance company is going to want to speak with you on the phone while recording the call. While you’re being recorded, the insurance adjuster is going to try to trick you into implying you were at fault for your injuries, or that your injuries are not as severe as you’re claiming. It is very easy to fall for these tricks even if you’re aware they’re trying them. If you accidentally say the wrong thing it can cause the value of your casino tour bus accident claim to instantly plummet. Call us today for a free consultation so we can handle all conversations and negotiations with insurance companies for you and make sure that the insurance companies pay you what you are entitled to under California law up to their policy limits. Duty of Care of Drivers of Tour Buses While everyone knows those who operate school buses need to be exceptionally careful, you should know that casinos and private bus companies also owe their riders a duty of care. For example, tour bus drivers have a duty to follow traffic rules. This means they should not speed, drive through red lights or turn from the wrong lane. It also means they should drive below the posted speed limit when certain conditions, such as bad weather, make following the speed limit unsafe. Drivers also have a duty to their passengers. For example, drivers should not start or stop the bus suddenly, as this could result in injury. Drivers should not depart before passengers are safely seated. Drivers should also drop their passengers off at a safe location. Duty of Care of Agencies Hiring Bus Drivers Agencies have a duty not to hire bus drivers who are not qualified to operate such a vehicle. Agencies should not simply take the word of an applicant, but rather should confirm the driver has the requisite license to operate the coach in question. Further, background checks are a must. Where appropriate, screening to determine potential drug or alcohol use should be implemented. Duty of Care Regarding Bus Maintenance Depending on the circumstances, either the casino, the bus company or both may bear the duty of care regarding the maintenance of buses used in casino bus tours. Buses should be subject to regular maintenance. Some of the many points of inspection include making sure tires are properly inflated and in good condition, brakes are working properly and the windshield wipers are not only in working order, but sufficient to clear the windshield of rain, sleet, or snow. Generally speaking, buses should be free from defect. Additionally, the interior of the bus should be maintained in a manner that ensures the safety of the passengers. For example, spills should be cleaned up quickly to reduce, if not eliminate, the potential for slips and falls. Steps should be clearly marked with bright reflective tape to avoid falls and other injuries. If the bus comes equipped with seat belts, these should all be in working order.
