Do you know if the bus that slammed your hand was a city/government bus? If so, you had 6 months from the date if loss to file a claim. This requirement can be stretched but ONLY for good cause.
I suggest you immediately contact a local personal injury attorney to look through all of the documents to see if you have a cause of action. In the meantime, get all the medical help that you need.
While I am an attorney, I am not your attorney. You should always speak with your own attorney to gain full and complete legal advice.
On Monday of next week, contact an attorney that works on personal injury cases. I am afraid you have let too much time pass but the attorney will let you know for sure!
In no way am I offering you legal advice, and in no way has my comment created an attorney-client relationship. You are not to rely upon my note above in any way, but insted need to sit down with counsel and share all relevant facts before receiving fully-informed legal advice. If you want to be completely sure of your rights, you must sit down with an experienced criminal defense attorney to be fully aware of your rights.
