The Team You Need for the Results You Deserve Kansas City's Leading Medical Malpractice & Serious Personal Injury Firm

Bus Accident Attorneys in Kansas City

Handling Injury Cases Involving Bus Collisions

Bus crashes usually cause substantial injuries to occupants of the smaller car or to passengers on the bus. If the bus or shuttle is owned by a private transportation company, that entity assumes liability for physical harm and associated losses caused by its drivers.

The Kansas City bus accident attorneys of Dempsey & Kingsland, P.C. have a solid record of maximizing compensation in truck and commercial vehicle cases, including numerous accidents involving buses. We can represent motorists hit by a bus or bus riders who suffered serious injury.

Call us at (816) 484-3776 for a free case evaluation. We take cases throughout the K.C. metro area in Missouri and Kansas.

Why Retain an Attorney

Bus accidents – including school buses, coach buses, and other private buses – need to be handled differently than typical car accidents. Obtaining compensation is not always easy, especially when bus companies and their insurance carriers try to mitigate damages against you. It is important to have an experienced bus accident attorney at your side if you or someone you love has been involved in a bus accident.

Types of Bus Accident Cases

Whether the company operating the bus involved in your accident was public or private, Dempsey & Kingsland can represent you and fight for justice on your behalf.

Our firm pursues compensation in accidents involving a:

  • City bus
  • School bus
  • Commercial bus (such as a Greyhound bus)
  • Airport shuttle
  • Private coach bus

Trial lawyers Lee Dempsey and Bob Kingsland have over 80 years of combined experience and the resources to quickly investigate a bus crash.

We can advocate for the innocent victims in any scenario, including:

  • Occupants of a car that was hit by a bus
  • Pedestrians struck down by a bus
  • Bus passengers seriously hurt in a collision

Our Approach

We can bring in professional investigators and accident reconstructionists if there is doubt about who was at fault. In representing people hit by a bus, we work to prove that the bus driver was speeding, distracted, drunk, or otherwise responsible. In representing bus passengers, our Kansas City bus accident lawyers can build a case for negligence against the bus company or another motorist responsible for the collision.

Dempsey & Kingsland has won compensation for wrongful death and for major injuries such as brain trauma, spinal cord injury, amputation, and broken bones. One key to our success is an exclusive relationship with physician and nurse consultants who assess our clients’ injuries and help project their future needs in the aftermath.

Contact us today if you or someone you love was hit by a bus or was injured as a passenger on a bus. Call (816) 484-3776.
