Experienced Bus Accident Attorneys in Westminster, Colorado
The Denver Regional Transportation District, or RTD, provides bus service to Westminster connecting it to Boulder and Denver via a bus rapid transit service that travels in the US 36 express lanes called The Flatiron Flyer.
Each weekday, over 1,500 people board buses at our park-n-ride facility to take one of the nearly 500 buses per day that serve our Westminster Center facility.
When most people board these buses to enjoy expedited transportation options that allow them to avoid driving their own cars, they assume that safety is the priority throughout their trips.
Fortunately, for the most part, that is true.
Unfortunately, throughout the United States each year there are approximately 25,000 people injured in bus crashes, including those riding on:
- Motor coaches
- Private buses
- Public city buses
- School buses
- Shuttle buses
The difficult part of pursuing financial recovery from bus accidents is that there is often more than one party involved in the collision, which complicates the insurance claim process.
At Donaldson Law, LLC, our personal injury lawyers in Westminster, Colorado will review your accident, the injuries you sustained, and help determine who was liable for the collision, so we can pursue the person, party, or company responsible for your financial recovery needs.
