If you have been in a private bus or shuttle collision, there are several things you will want to do:
1) Call for emergency assistance and offer assistance to other passengers. If you or other passengers have been injured, contact 911. Do not attempt to offer assistance to other passengers unless an emergency dispatcher gives you specific instructions to do so. If a passenger has suffered a spinal cord injury or other serious injury, you may worsen their condition by moving them.
2) Get a medical evaluation. Even if you do not have to be rushed to a hospital, it is important to get a full medical evaluation before you return home. In fact, you will want to get a full medical evaluation immediately. If you have hit your head or have been snapped forward suddenly as a result of the crash, you may have suffered a head injury or soft tissue injury, even if you don't seem to have any symptoms right away. Head injuries are especially worrisome, since even those that do not present symptoms right away can be potentially life-threatening. Getting a thorough medical evaluation immediately could help save your life, so this is not a step you'll want to skip.
3) Get evidence of the collision. If possible, get as much documentation of your collision as possible. Get the name of the driver as well is the name of the shuttle and note the time, date, and location of the crash. If you have a cell phone or camera, consider taking multiple pictures of the accident site. Get copies of the police report or medical reports if possible.
4) Contact a personal injury attorney. As soon as possible after your collision, contact a personal injury attorney. Attorneys can even visit you in your hospital room or hotel if you have been injured and cannot travel. A personal injury attorney can take action immediately to preserve your rights and to get answers about what caused the accident. The insurance companies protecting liable parties are already doing this within minutes of the accident, so you will want someone representing your rights immediately as well. A personal injury attorney can help you find local resources, even if you're from out of town. A good attorney can also help you understand your rights and can help you review any settlement or insurance offers. Essentially, an attorney works for you, ensuring that your interests and rights are protected.
