Document the Accident

If you can, take pictures of the accident. You could take pictures that show the damage done to the bus and the other vehicles involved. Take pictures of your injuries if you have any. Talk to the other passengers and get their contact information so you can stay in touch with them and so your attorney can contact different witnesses if they need to.

Contact Your Insurance Provider

Talk to the bus driver or staff to find out what will happen next.
