Who is Liable?

Under California law, multiple parties may be liable for your injuries. These parties may share a portion of the bus driver’s fault.

  • The transit company: If an investigation reveals that the transit company failed to take necessary steps to ensure the bus was safely maintained, you may be able to bring a claim against it.
  • Manufacturers: A mechanical part – like a defective engine – may be responsible for the accident. If so, you may be able to bring a claim against the entity that manufactured, designed, or distributed that bus part.
  • Other drivers on the public roads: You may be able to sue another driver who caused an accident by running a red light, failing to yield, rear-ending the bus, or otherwise driving negligently.

Questions Your Bus Accident Attorney May Ask

The specific questions your lawyer asks you will depend upon the unique facts of your case. However, generally, you should be prepared to answer the following questions:

  • How, when, and where did the accident occur?
  • What types of injuries did you sustain?
  • Have you sought treatment for your injuries? If so, what?
  • What is your prognosis?
  • Has anyone involved in the accident contacted you? Did you provide any statements?
  • Who witnessed the accident?
  • Have you been able to work since your accident?
  • What accident-related expenses have you incurred?
  • Have you posted about your accident or injuries on social media?
  • Did you take any photos of the accident scene? Of your injuries?

Navigating the Claims Process

The bus accident attorneys at Harris Personal Injury Lawyers will help you craft a case built on real, concrete evidence so that you can walk away with the compensation that you deserve. An adjuster can coerce you into making statements that erode your claim and reduce your damages award. As such, it is vital that you do not speak with a claims adjuster until you have consulted your attorney. Additionally, it is advisable to stay off social media during the claims process so that you do not inadvertently post anything that an adjuster can use to contest the severity of your injuries. When you hire us, we will walk you through each step of the claims process and will advise you as to the steps you should take (and avoid) to create the best chance of success.
