Who Is Liable in a Bus Accident?
The more parties involve in a vehicle accident, the more complicated the case will be. In a bus accident, the number of potential parties is higher than perhaps any other type of traffic collision. Liability could fall upon parties you never even considered, and you will only gain proper compensation if you know who they are.
Our Savannah bus accident lawyers will need to study your case to determine which of the following parties can be found liable:
- Driver: Most traffic accidents are caused by the people actually driving the vehicle, and bus accidents are no exception. A distracted bus driver poses a serious threat to everyone on the road and within their vehicle. They must be held liable when applicable.
- Company: Bus schedules are strict, demanding, and set by a parent company, or the city if it is a public transportation bus. Making a bus driver work long hours or speed to meet tight scheduling could put some liability onto the shoulders of the controlling company or department.
- Mechanic: Maintaining a bus to acceptable standards of safety is not an easy feat but it is a necessary one. If mechanics approve a bus for use on the roads when it is unsafe, they could be partly responsible for defects and part failures that cause a crash.
- Passenger: The people on a bus have just as much responsibility to be safe as anyone else. A bus passenger that intentional distracts or attacks the driver while the vehicle is in motion could be liable for any resulting collision.
