In the wake of a tour bus accident on Saturday, July 14, in downtown Los Angeles, which injured 25 people and left four in serious condition, The Law Offices of Jacob Emrani discuss what to do after a bus accident.
A bus accident victim should take pictures immediately after the incident. Photographs of the damage, accident scene and personal injuries provide direct evidence to include in a claim. Any information about the accident should be documented, including witness names, the bus company’s and driver’s name, and license information.
