Bus Accident Liability
The term "liability" refers to fault. Who is responsible for your accident? Depending on the circumstances of your case, you may be able to file suit against the bus company, the driver, or the governing municipality.
The Bus Driver
You can name the driver in your lawsuit if he / she acted negligently and is directly responsible for the accident. Drunk driving, inattention, aggressive driving, and careless errors are examples of driver negligence.
The Bus Company
If you were injured as a passenger of a commercial charter bus, the bus management company may be responsible for your accident. Sometimes, you can name the driver and the management company.
If your bus accident involved public transportation, you may be able to hold the city responsible for your injury. Even if the driver was negligent and caused the accident, the city is responsible for its employees.
School Bus Accidents
According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), school buses are the safest way for children to get to and from school. School buses are designed for passenger safety but are not immune to serious accidents. If your child suffered an injury in a school bus accident, you may be able to seek compensation from the school system.
