Determining liability in bus accident cases 

Buses are generally a safe way to get around, and bus drivers usually follow the rules of the road, ensuring everyone’s safety. Of course, accidents do happen sometimes, and often those accidents are caused by someone’s negligent behavior. Depending on the circumstances of your accident, there are multiple parties who could be at fault, including: 

  • The bus driver 
  • The bus driver’s supervisor or boss 
  • The company who owns the bus 
  • The county or city who operates the bus 
  • The company responsible for maintenance 
  • The bus stop property owner 
  • The manufacturer of the bus, or bus parts 

Your bus accident lawyer will examine all the available evidence to determine liability. This can include driver history and training records, maintenance logs, video from speed and nearby security cameras, as well as eye-witness testimony. When the cause of the accident is a combination of factors, (e.g. a distracted driver paired with poorly functioning brakes), the case can be extremely complex. This is why it’s extremely important that you begin working with a premium legal team as soon as possible.
