Filing a Claim after an RTD Bus Accident

There may have been a number of causes of your bus accident. The bus driver may have been fatigued, or may have made a critical driving error that caused the crash. Your driver may have been driving rashly or driving at excessive speeds. In all these cases, the driver may have been at fault in the accident. However, holding the driver liable is more challenging in such cases. The Governmental Immunity Act in Colorado requires that you inform the government about your injury within a period of 180 days after the injury. If you fail to do so, your right to bring a claim against the entity, or in this case, the Regional Transportation District, is lost.

If you have been injured in an accident involving an RTD bus, do not delay. Get medical help for your injuries, and speak with a Denver bus accident lawyer immediately.
