Q: What can I do if I fall out of my wheelchair On jatran bus because they didn’t have seatbelts
A: A Mississippi attorney would be best qualified to address your question, but your post remains open for three weeks. At this point, reach out to attorneys if you were injured in the fall. Most attorneys would give a free initial consult for this type of accident, and if they determined that you had the grounds for a case, most work on a contingency basis (where the attorney fee only materializes upon a successful settlement or jury verdict - but keep in mind that fee arrangement is something that has to be specifically discussed and agreed upon with the attorney). Good luck
A: At Chhabra & Gibbs, P.A., we handle cases similar to this on a daily basis. As Tim said, you should start by contacting a lawyer, preferably one licensed in Mississippi that is experienced with these types of cases, to begin discussing your potential claim. Most lawyers use an intake procedure to answer the procedural questions such as who you are, when the accident occurred, and how you got hurt. You should consider contacting an attorney immediately so that you can get the help you need.
