Who May be Liable?
Liability in a bus accident case is rarely straightforward. Aside from the bus driver himself, multiple other parties may be liable for your damages – and who might share a portion of the driver’s fault.
These parties may include, among others:
- The transit company: If an investigation reveals that the public transit company failed to take necessary steps to ensure its vehicles were safely maintained – and if the evidence links this failure to the accident that injured you – we may bring a claim against the company.
- 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. Determining whether a manufacturing defect caused the accident is a fact-intensive inquiry, however, and may not become evident until we launch a thorough investigation.
- 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.
