What Is Negligence?
Proving negligence is required to obtain compensation in a Texas personal injury or wrongful death lawsuit. To prove that the bus driver was negligent, Rocky must prove points in two areas:
Rocky draws upon his decades in practice to identify the duty that the bus driver had to their passengers and other vehicles on the road. He also must illustrate how the bus driver failed in their duty, such as failing to stop at a stop sign while texting.
Rocky must also prove that the injuries you suffered were caused by the failed duty, and that these injuries would not have occurred without the bus driver’s negligence. Finally, Rocky demonstrates to the courts that his client has suffered actual, tangible harm that requires compensation.
Compensation We Can Seek For the Effects of Bus Accidents
Compensation in a lawsuit is often referred to as damages. The standard form of compensation in any car accident is compensatory damages, and can include:
- Physical Pain
- Mental Anguish
- Property Damage
- Medical Bills
- Lost Wages
- Reduced Earnings
In cases where the bus driver was especially reckless, our bus accident attorney can seek exemplary damages – an additional category of compensation that is awarded to punish offenders and set examples. Rocky has won many six and seven-figure verdicts and settlements, and can seek the same for you.
