Determining liability in a bus accident
Buses are large vehicles, and they pack a lot of momentum. Even a low-speed fender-bender can cause serious injuries. To ensure that buses operate safely, laws have been put in place that concern driver training and vehicle maintenance, as have specific rules about how they must be driven on the roads. Because of this, there are many people who may be responsible for an accident caused by a bus. Liable parties may include:
- The bus driver
- The bus company or municipality
- Mechanics who maintain the buses
- Companies who manufacture important parts
Oftentimes, the cause of the accident is a mix of factors. Perhaps the bus driver was speeding, and the company skipped routine maintenance on the brakes to save a buck. Maybe the driver was operating safely, but the brake pads that were installed on the vehicle were faulty. A bus accident lawyer from Ellis Law can help you figure out who is to blame for your injuries.
