Buses are a convenient and affordable method of travel, though they can be involved in accidents that result in injuries to passengers and others on the road. After a bus accident injury, contact an experienced attorney at the law firm of Ben F. Windham PC for help.
Who is Responsible for Your Bus Accident Losses?
Bus passengers rarely use seat belts and do not have the protection of airbags like in smaller vehicles. For this reason, passengers can sustain serious injuries if a bus crashes or rolls over onto its side, which is common. Additionally, buses are much larger than most other vehicles and can cause serious injuries if they crash into cars or SUVs. Losses can be extensive, so it is important to know who was responsible and how to seek compensation for your medical bills and other losses.
Liable parties in bus accidents can include:
- Bus drivers
- Private bus companies
- Bus manufacturers
- Bus maintenance crews
- Third-party drivers
Even though bus drivers have special commercial driver’s licenses, they can be negligent and causes crashes. In such situations, the company that employed the driver may be strictly liable for the accident, as well.
