Protecting The Rights Of Injury Victims In COTA And School Bus Accidents

Accidents that involve a school bus or city bus can result in extremely serious injuries. Whether you were riding the bus or you were a driver or passenger in a vehicle that was hit by a bus, the potential for more severe injuries remains extremely high. If you suffered an injury in any type of bus accident, it is important that you seek the advice of a qualified lawyer who knows the law and has the ability to protect your interests.

At Heit Law, LLC, in Westerville, I focus my entire practice on helping injury victims throughout the Columbus area and across Ohio. I have successfully represented numerous clients in a variety of complex bus accident cases. I understand the types of injuries that can happen in these accidents, and I know the right approach to seeking compensation that will accommodate your current and future needs.

Providing Innovative Solutions To Complex Personal Injury Claims

The Central Ohio Transportation Authority (COTA) is a state-sponsored agency that operates city buses throughout the region. School buses are under the authority of the individual school districts. The rules pertaining to lawsuits against government-protected parties are considerably different than those that govern a lawsuit against the driver of a personal vehicle.

I do not let the protected status of these parties stop me from seeking justice for the injuries you have suffered. I closely examine your case from every perspective, looking for a solution that will provide a favorable result. I work diligently to identify any cause that could allow you to pursue damages, including the negligence of a driver who hit the bus or otherwise caused the accident, negligent bus maintenance, defective equipment on the bus and other causes.
