Accidents > Bus Accidents

Although buses are considered by most people to be one of the safest forms of transportation we have, if you have been in a bus accident, you are probably just beginning to realize how dangerous they truly can be.

A bus accident lawsuit can result from an injury sustained while doing any of the following:

-Riding a Bus
-Walking on the Street and Having a Bus Crash into You
-Driving or Riding in a Car and Having a Bus Crash into the Car.

In a bus accident lawsuit, a claim is filed against the bus company or the owner of the bus to receive compensation for your losses. These losses may include medical expenses, lost wages, loss of earning capacity, pain and suffering, disfigurement and emotional distress.

Liability of Bus Companies in Bus Accident Lawsuits
Your situation will need to be considered in light of federal and state guidelines. Buses are common carriers and are obligated to provide a higher level of safety. They fit into the same category as trains and planes. All common carriers may be liable for personal injuries to passengers. The carrier must have the essential equipment and a sensible degree of skill to carry out the transportation of passengers.

State policies vary, but in general, if a personal injury occurs because the carrier was not in compliance with safety regulations, the carrier may have total liability for personal injuries. Liability issues in bus accidents often involve driver negligence, driver training, inadequate security, dangerous roadways, weather conditions, defective products, drunk driving and improper maintenance.
