Who is Liable for My Damages?

Aside from the bus driver, many different parties may be liable for your damages. Some of these parties include, among others:

  • The bus company: If an investigation shows that the bus company failed to take necessary steps to ensure the vehicle was safe, and the evidence links this failure to the accident, you may be able to bring a claim against it.
  • The bus driver: If the bus driver was distracted or impaired, you may have grounds to sue him or her for negligent driving.
  • Manufacturers: If a defective bus part caused the accident, you may be able to bring a claim against the entity that manufactured, designed, or distributed that part.
  • Government entities: If you were injured while riding on a government-owned bus, or if an investigation shows that a government employee may have been at fault, you might have grounds to sue the government entity.
  • Other drivers: If a driver caused an accident by running a red light, failing to yield, rear-ending the bus, or otherwise driving negligently, you may be able to sue him or her for your injuries.
