Liability in bus accident cases can be complex
Finding compensation for a bus accident is a complicated process. Liability for an accident depends on the circumstances of the crash as well as the owner of the bus involved. Depending on those circumstances, responsible parties can include:
- Bus driver
- Driver of another vehicle involved in the accident
- Municipal government that owns the bus and/or maintains the road
- Private company that owns the bus
- Company responsible for maintaining and repairing the bus
- Manufacturer of the bus itself or a component of the bus (such as tires)
Pursuing compensation in these complex cases can be an uphill battle. There may be dozens of victims competing for the same pool of insurance money. Private bus companies and vehicle manufacturers have extensive assets and will fight hard to protect those assets. And if the bus is owned and operated by the local government, you could be looking at a lawsuit against a government entity - which is always challenging.
