The popularity of public transportation is growing. Many people rely on Knoxville Area Transit (KAT) buses to get to and from work, to run errands and to move throughout the city. Unfortunately, accidents involving buses are often catastrophic.
After being injured in a bus accident, many people feel overwhelmed and unsure where to turn for help. At the Garza Law Firm PLLC, we understand your confusion and stress.

Investigating The Accident To Improve Your Recovery
Bus accident scenes contain valuable evidence that can be quickly lost to cleaning crews and rain. Our firm acts fast, we thoroughly investigate the accident and attempt to interview witnesses before the insurance company does. We also use accident reconstruction specialists when necessary. Some questions we ask include:
- Did the driver obey traffic laws?
- Was the driver overworked or denied adequate breaks?
- Was the bus properly maintained and repaired?
- Were dangerous road conditions present?
- Was the accident caused by another motor vehicle driver hitting the bus?
Through our investigations, we are often able to secure valuable information that gives our clients a leg up during settlement negotiations and during trial.
