Why Bus Accidents are So Unique
Consider the purpose of a bus – transporting dozens of people at
a time in one large vehicle. Now consider how that creates a complication
relatively unique to bus accidents – were you injured as a passenger
on the bus, or as a passerby driving your own vehicle? Insurance adjusters
can try to take advantage of this convoluted scenario to offer small,
inadequate settlement amounts, or to shift liability off the accountable
party they are representing.
Liability is also a significant issue in bus accident claims since the
bus driver alone might not be responsible for what happened. If you want
to make certain that you are fighting for the right amount of compensation
from the right parties, you should allow our law firm to handle your claim
while you focus on recuperation.
We may be able to find one or more of the following parties liable for
your bus accident:
Bus driver: The most obvious answer to who caused your bus accident, the driver may
have allowed themselves to get
distracted after spending hours behind the wheel.
Bus company: If it can be found that the company that owns the bus and trains their
drivers has not enforced safe behaviors, or even encouraged unsafe behaviors
such as speeding, they could be accountable in some part for any accidents
Maintenance crews: Mechanics need to ensure a bus is ready for use before it is allowed on
the roads. Unreasonably poor safety inspections or repair jobs could have
caused your bus accident.
Other passengers: When a passenger on the bus deliberately disturbs the bus driver to the
point of making it impossible for them to control the vehicle safely,
that passenger might be liable in the event of a bus accident.
