We are Georgelis Injury Law Firm. We make sure our Lancaster County neighbors receive justice for their school-bus accident injuries. On average, nearly 26 million children in the U.S. take 480,000 buses to and from school each day.
Even though the pandemic has had an impact on the overall number of children being in school, school-bus accidents still happen, and often. If your child was injured in a school-bus accident, are you hoping to receive compensation to pay for medical bills and other costs?
Our school-bus accident attorneys don’t want you to ‘hope’ for the best. We want you to feel confident, with our powerful accident attorneys by your side, that you will win your case! Winning cases is what we do. In fact, our personal injury attorneys have won more than 99% of their cases! Because of that, insurance companies do not enjoy being confronted by our team because they know we come prepared, and aggressively fight for our clients.
Insurance companies can be coldhearted when it comes to paying sums of money to those injured in accidents, even when injuries involve the most innocent – our children. Insurance companies will often deny or minimize recoveries, in hopes of holding on to as much of their financial assets as possible.
First, we will not allow you or your family to be bullied or manipulated by insurance companies, or any other entity working against your claim. As your powerful legal advocate, our team will work with you to determine who was at fault for the school-bus accident and gather the evidence to support the claim. Our expert personal injury attorneys will then vigorously present your case with the precision and knowledge to win.
Second, school districts are considered ‘political subdivisions’ and possess ‘sovereign immunity.’ This translates into school districts being immune to lawsuits unless certain evidentiary thresholds are met. Our school-bus accident attorneys are very familiar with these laws and are able to proceed with legal action under many circumstances.
We will help you navigate the special rules and regulations related to school districts and school-bus accidents. Our in-depth knowledge in this field can make the difference between getting full financial recovery versus getting nothing at all.
This type of litigation is very complex. It is one more reason our Lancaster County clients rely on our experience, knowledge and resources in these types of matters. Our objective is to build the strongest evidence of negligence – negligence that could stem from the school-bus driver, the school-bus company, another motorist, faulty traffic signals, faulty roadways, or other contributors.
Our school-bus accident lawyers can pursue legal and civil action pertaining to one or more of the following:
Tragically, deaths can result from school-bus accidents. If you lost a child due to this type of accident, our school-bus accident lawyers may pursue legal action in a wrongful-death claim and seek compensation for:
Our Lancaster County neighbors who choose to let us take care of them will never have to be concerned about out-of-pocket expenses. Because we are confident we will win, we are only compensated when our clients receive monetary recoveries.
At Georgelis Injury Law Firm, we relish the opportunity to become involved in a bus accident claim as soon as possible. This allows us to build the claim as solidly as possible, give our injured client guidance and advice on medical treatment, keep an eye on the insurance company and make sure our client has total peace-of-mind from the outset.
In other words, every step of the way, we will be available to answer your questions, keep you updated, address any concerns you have and be there as a sounding board for you. And, again, we don’t bill for your time, so you never have to be hesitant about calling, e-mailing or texting us. We love hearing from our clients!
From a $1,400,000 auto accident recovery to a $300,000 dog-bite award to a $165,000 slip-and-fall settlement to a $1.25 million motorcycle accident award, our skills, resources, and aggressiveness means our success translates into victories for our Lancaster, PA clients!
A good portion of our success lies with handling:
From the moment a bus accident happens, the insurance company begins working to limit what they will pay. Whether an accident involves rear-end or side-impacts with another car, hit & runs, DUI crashes, or distracted drivers, our Lancaster clients reap the rewards of our lawyers’ commanding knowledge of the Pennsylvania Motor Vehicle Code. We also offer keen insight into bus accidents involving commercial vehicles, cars, tractor trailers, trucks, motorcycles and other types of vehicles.
Our auto injury attorneys will take up the battle against prominent insurance companies backed by powerful attorneys who will attempt to minimize or eliminate your monetary compensation – as your aggressive legal ally, we won’t let that happen!
Whether on a bicycle or motorcycle, buses pose a very real threat. Bus collisions with cyclists in crosswalks, inattentive drivers who don’t see riders in time, and other situations can spell tragedy in mere seconds.
If, as a bicyclist or motorcyclist, you believe a bus or other vehicle caused an injury to you or a loved one, please give our accident lawyers a call, immediately.
Perhaps you entered a crosswalk and were struck by the driver of a bus who was distracted by texting, or a driver who was driving too fast or was intoxicated.
Regardless of the circumstances, a bus accident that contributed to your injuries as a pedestrian must be dealt with quickly. If you have medical issues or other concerns, you want expediency and thoroughness to ensure your medical and monetary needs are met as quickly as possible.
Our Lancaster auto injury attorneys have the moxie and proven success you will want to win your case. Be aware, though, that statutes-of-limitation mean you must present a claim for injuries within a set amount of time in order to qualify for compensation. Give Georgelis Injury Law Firm a call today, and we will address any questions you have!
Distracted driving has become increasingly problematic due to those who choose to use their mobile phones while behind the wheel. Our accident lawyers can help you preserve evidence – such as text messaging records – that you may not be able to obtain. Details, such as this, can dramatically help your case!
