How Do You Determine the Liable Parties in a Bus Accident?
In the case of bus accidents, often the drivers are not the owners of the vehicles. This means that sometimes you cannot handle a bus accident the way you would a crash with a passenger car. There may be multiple liable parties whose negligence caused the crash, including individuals, organizations, and companies.
Getting the money that you and your family need for your medical bills, lost wages, and pain and suffering might be harder than just filing a claim with the driver’s insurance. A personal injury lawyer can walk you through your options in these complex cases.
School Bus Accidents
School bus drivers have an important task—to get our kids home safe. When they are negligent in their duties, tragedies can happen. If your loved one was injured due to a school bus accident, then you may be entitled to compensation.
There are several potentially liable parties in a school bus accident case. The bus driver may have been driving negligently, which means that they can be sued for damages—as can their employer, typically the school board.
If a passenger car fails to stop for a school bus and injures a child inside the bus, then the passenger car driver can be held liable. Additionally, a school bus manufacturer who sold faulty vehicles or a school bus company that fails to maintain their buses can be held liable.
Liability in these cases all depends on the specifics of your situation. A Corpus Christi bus accident lawyer can review the facts and help you determine the best next steps for you and your family.
Loncar Lyon Jenkins is available to speak to you about your case today.
Commercial Bus Accidents
If a company operated the bus involved in your crash, you could potentially sue both the driver and the company.
When you attempt to file a claim against one of these companies’ insurance policies, the insurer will often try to pay you less than the amount that you are owed to cover your medical bills, lost wages, and pain and suffering. A bus accident lawyer can help you identify all liable parties and fight for the amount you need and deserve.
