Who Is Liable for Bus Accidents?
Bus accident injury claims tend to be a bit more complex than other types of motor vehicle accidents because they typically involve a municipal entity. As such, there are different time limits (known as “statutes of limitations”) for bringing a claim, as well as other additional complicating factors. One of these factors is the fact that there may be multiple liable parties. Even if a bus driver causes an accident through negligence, the public entity that employs him or her may be responsible for the crash.
Any of the following parties may be liable for a bus accident:
- The municipal entity that owns and/or operates the bus
- The bus driver
- The manufacturer of the bus or a certain bus part
- The person or entity responsible for conducting bus maintenance
- The bus driver’s supervisor
- Another non-related third party, such as another motorist
When conducting our independent investigation, we look at various factors involved in the accident to determine liability. For example, was the bus driver acting negligently or recklessly prior to the crash? Did a vehicle part malfunction? Was the bus properly maintained or was regular maintenance neglected? These and other relevant factors allow us to determine who was at fault for the accident and, ultimately, who is liable for your medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering, emotional distress, and other damages.
