Park City Bus Accident Attorney
Were You Injured in a Bus Accident? We Will Advocate for Your Rights.
Buses are lauded as among the safest forms of transportation available, but when accidents happen, they can cause severe — even fatal — injury to those involved. If you have been injured in a bus accident due to another party’s negligence, you may have grounds to file a lawsuit against that party for financial compensation.
At Dodd & Kuendig, we are dedicated to fighting for our clients in the civil justice system because we care about them as individuals, not case files. Our team understands how high the stakes are for our clients; in our experience, personal injury litigation is often the best and only path to justice for many accident victims. Should you work with us, we will guide you through every step of litigation, handle any barriers as they present themselves, and ensure that your voice is at the center of your case.

Recovering the Damages You Deserve After a Park City Bus Accident
At Dodd & Kuendig, we know full well that no amount of money is true recompense for the hardship you have experienced. However, financial compensation can help minimize the devastating aftermath of an accident injury. It can help you afford the medical treatment you need to heal, make up for lost wages due to missed time from work, and settle any debts related to the accident and your injury. You may even be compensated for non-economic losses — mental anguish, emotional distress, loss of quality of life, etc. — if they apply to your case.

Common Causes of Bus Accidents in Park City
Various factors may have contributed to the bus accident in which you were injured, some of which are no one’s fault, such as inclement weather. But if one party’s negligence was a major contributing factor, then they could be held liable for causing a preventable accident and, therefore, harm to others.
Several types of negligence often behind preventable bus accidents include:
- Driving while fatigued
- Driving under the influence
- Transporting too many passengers
- Driving recklessly (e.g. speeding)
- Distracted driving (e.g. texting and driving)
- Driving a bus that is poorly or improperly maintained
- Attempting to execute unsafe lane changes
- Failing to check for pedestrians and other vehicles when turning
This is not an all-inclusive list. If the other party was negligent in another way, you likely have the right to file suit. To learn more about your legal rights, consult an attorney.
Statute of Limitations for Bus Accident Lawsuits
Per Utah’s statute of limitations, bus accident victims have six years from the date of the accident to file a lawsuit. This may seem like plenty of time, but the longer you wait to take legal action, the harder time you will have at winning justice. The defense is likely to twist any gap of time between the accident and legal action — or even between the accident and when you first sought medical help — to argue that no real harm was done to you. Don’t let them distort the truth and escape accountability.
