Who could be responsible for my accident?
Let’s discuss a common collision. You’re stopped at a stop sign, and you’re rear-ended by a bus. There are multiple parties who could be responsible for the crash. If the accident was caused by driver error or negligence, the company may still be liable because it is their responsibility to hire drivers with a clean driving record and make sure that they are properly trained. If a brake failure caused the crash, it could be because the brakes themselves were faulty, because they weren’t installed properly, or because mandatory maintenance was skipped in order to save the owners money. As you can see, there are a lot of people, from the driver and mechanics to higher-ups with the city or corporation who operates the bus, who may be partially or totally at fault. This is why you need a bus accident lawyer who understands the ins and outs of local, state, and federal law.
