Central Ohio Transportation Authority (COTA) buses are often involved in accidents resulting in injuries and fatalities. Because COTA buses fall under government authority, pursuing compensation after an accident follows a different set of rules than in the case of a civilian motor vehicle accident. Attorneys at Volkema Thomas Miller & Scott, LPA, in Columbus, are diligent and thorough in investigations. With 100 years of combined experience, we are prepared to put our heads together as we seek the most promising arguments in your favor.
Sometimes drivers crash into the back of buses stopped to pick up passengers. Other times, buses and cars collide in T-bone crashes in intersections and in other circumstances. If you were injured or your loved one was killed in a crash involving a COTA bus, you should have an experienced lawyer on your side as you pursue compensation for:
- Medical expenses
- Lost wages
- Pain and suffering
What Caused The Bus Accident?
Was a bus driver careless? Were defective bus parts a factor? Was there a defective roadway issue in the accident? We are committed to discovering all relevant facts if we represent you in a bus accident. You can count on us to leave no stone unturned if we represent you after a bus accident.
Will Video Surveillance Evidence Prove Critical In Your Injury Case?
Most COTA buses now have cameras both inside and on the exterior. Video surveillance evidence can help identify the actual cause of a bus accident. We often solve cases in unexpected ways. For example, we uncovered bus surveillance video evidence in support of a client injured in an accident that occurred outside a bus and did not even involve the bus. This was not a COTA accident, but a COTA bus proved to hold the key to an accident nearby.
