Who Caused the Bus Accident?

There are numerous factors that can contribute to a bus accident, including:

  • Bad weather
  • Blind spots
  • Wide left turns
  • Bus driver negligence
  • Bus driver fatigue
  • Bus company negligence
  • Negligence of another driver
  • Bus fires

If the bus accident was caused by another driver’s reckless actions, you will likely have to go through the driver’s insurer to collect compensation. If the bus driver caused the accident, you can sue their employer. You can also sue the company if the accident was caused by malfunctioning auto parts.

Commercial bus companies are legally obligated to make sure that their vehicles comply with safety regulations and are safe for passengers to travel in. If a bus company fails to adhere to safety guidelines and their vehicle is involved in an accident, the company can be sued for damages.

What If the Bus Is Owned by the Government?

If the bus accident involves a city or school bus, you can file a lawsuit against the government. It is important to note that there are many challenges you will have to deal with when trying to hold a government agency accountable for your accident. Our skilled bus accident lawyers are here to guide you through any obstacles you might encounter. While you won’t be able to obtain punitive damages when you sue a government agency, you can still hold the bus driver accountable if they caused your accident damages.
