I'm Griff Tonkin, one of the partners at the Arthofer & Tonkin Law Offices.
We're a personal injury law firm, which means we represent people who've been injured through the fault of others.
Importance Of Video Footage in Bus Accidents
Today, I want to discuss bus accidents and video footage.
It's a specific topic but will illustrate several important legal points.
Buses are some of the largest and heaviest vehicles on our roadways, meaning they have to be driven with particular care and skill because they're just simply more dangerous given their size and weight.
We've litigated a number of cases involving bus accidents.
We've litigated cases involving private buses and buses operated by public entities.
When you're involved in an incident where the person or entity that caused your injury is of a public nature, meaning they're a public employee or a public service like public transportation, there are special rules that benefit the public entity to make them more difficult not only to sue but also more difficult to make a recovery against ultimately.
Also, the time frames against public entities are much, much shorter.
High Quality Video Footage
In these two bus cases that I want to use as illustrations for you today, we were able to determine that not only did the bus have a backup camera, but it had a number of other cameras, and they took high-quality video footage.
These cameras allowed us to determine the accident dynamics and how this person had been injured in a pedestrian versus bus case.
Another case that we handled was a bus case.
It was a bus and a motorcycle.
This case showed us exactly, or the cameras on the bus, how the motorcycle and bus were moving in relation to one another before the accident.
In that case, we acquired video footage from an adjacent school, which showed much information before, during, and after the accident sequence, allowing us to handle that case properly.
If you've been injured, you must contact an attorney who knows not only how to deal with public entities and large vehicles but also acquire the evidence necessary to determine exactly what happened in your case and how to properly care for both your legal needs and take care of you as a client.
