Can You Get Around Without the Bus? Our Vancouver Bus Crash Lawyers Offer Ideas

Jeffrey S. Witten, B.A., LL.B.
Personal Injury Lawyer at McComb Witten Marcoux

When new clients come to see our Vancouver bus crash lawyers, they are often still in shock. Serious bus accidents, when they occur, tend to be violent and horrific to witness. Many victims never want to ride the bus again—an understandable reaction.

However, you still need to get around town. So how can you solve your transportation problem?

First, recognize that your fear may stem from unresolved conflicts related to your Vancouver bus crash.

Don't deal with the fear and uncertainty alone. Retain effective medical care and legal assistance.

Second, get creative.

If you no longer want to take the bus—for whatever reason—make a list of all your transportation needs, so you can meet them creatively. For instance, perhaps you took the bus to and from work. On the other hand, maybe you only took the bus to visit your brother way up in a northern town in British Columbia.

Once you have listed these transportation needs, devise alternative strategies to meet them. For instance, instead of taking the bus to and from work, maybe you could you ride your bike or catch a ride with a coworker. Perhaps your boss would allow you to telecommute, full time or part-time, until you feel more comfortable getting back on the bus. If you must traverse long distances, defer your trip, or ask the person on the other end to visit you.

Lastly, consider getting therapy to deal with irrational fears or catastrophic thinking.

For instance, try adopting a daily mindful meditation practice (15 to 30 minutes) to reduce your stress and learn how to handle situations that give you anxiety or fear.

Above all else, manage any incompletions related to your case. For instance, if you have not retained a Vancouver bus injury attorney, aim to do so, as soon as possible. An adept Vancouver bus crash lawyer can answer your questions and help you feel less confused.
