Who Is Liable in a Bus Accident?

The days following a bus accident can be traumatic. You may be contacted by the bus company and asked to settle a possible claim for a small amount. It is important that you never settle with anybody until you speak to an experienced attorney. Filing a bus accident claim is very different from filing a typical traffic accident claim. For one thing, it isn’t just one party that may be liable in a bus accident claim.

There are several parties that may be liable, including the following:

  • The Bus Driver – Drivers are required to drive safely, avoid aggressive driving, and distracted driving. Additionally, drivers must adhere to the law, and avoid driving while fatigued or impaired.
  • The Bus Company – The company that owns or operates the bus must hire qualified skilled and trained drivers, must make sure that the buses are in functioning order and must comply with other federal and state transportation safety rules.
  • Maintenance and Repair Companies – These companies are entrusted with the task of maintaining and repairing buses. Vehicles with malfunctioning components must be placed out of service until they are repaired.
  • Manufacturers of Bus Components – If the bus accident is the result of a defective component, the manufacturer of the part may be held responsible.
  • Government Agencies – Agencies in charge of construction, maintenance and control of highways may be held liable, if a defective condition causes an accident.

What You Should Know About Filing a Bus Accident Claim

Under California law, you have a limited period of time in which to file a claim. If your claim is against a government agency, then you have an even smaller window in which to file a claim. To learn more, reach out to our firm today. We offer our services for residents throughout Southern California, including Los Angeles, Orange County, Riverside, San Bernardino, San Diego, Ventura, and all surrounding counties.
