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.

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.

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

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.

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.
