If you were injured in a car or bus crash, you have to prove who is responsible for your injury. Sometimes, both drivers may be equally at fault and a claim will need to be opened against each driver. In order to protect your ability to recover, you should contact an experienced personal injury attorney as soon as possible. Any information regarding the crash will help your attorney figure out the best course of action, which may include filing a lawsuit.
