Bus Accident Litigation Lawyers In Schuyler Virginia

Schuyler (SKY-lur) is an unincorporated community in Nelson County, (with some addresses also in Albemarle County), Virginia, United States, close to Scottsville. In 1882, the community—originally "Walker's Mill" -- was named for Schuyler George Walker, local mill operator, and the area's first Postmaster. In the late 19th and early 20th Centuries, the town became a small industrial center with the establishment of a stone cutting plant for the area quarries of the Alberene Stone Company, which took the native and acid-resistant soap stone and milled the rock into flat table tops for labs and hospitals. The Great Depression essentially destroyed this industry and the area never fully recovered. Schuyler was the birthplace and home of writer Earl Hamner Jr. He is best known for the CBS television series The Waltons, which was based on his experiences of growing up the eldest child of a large rural family in depression era America. The region suffered greatly from the remnants of Hurricane Camille, which dumped two and three feet of rain in the area in August 1969. The flooding and landslides are a major weather event of the late 20th Century.

What is bus accident litigation?

Cases involving individuals who have been injured in crashes and collisions involving private or government-operated municipal bus systems. Bus accidents have a tendency to injury many people within and around the bus in a collision because the size and weight of these motor vehicles is enough to cause massive amounts of damage. When you factor in speed or adverse traffic conditions, the potential for property damage and/or loss of life is immense. People who are injured in bus accidents may be compensated for their injury, lost income, and pain and suffering.
