Do You Need a Bus Accident Attorney?

We'll fight to get you back on your feet

When a bus is involved in a crash, the stakes can be very high. Like truck accidents, bus accidents are dangerous because of the size disparity between buses and passenger cars. But a bus may also have dozens of passengers, all of whom could be injured in a crash. Knowing what to do next in a situation like that can be overwhelming as the legal fallout can quickly become more complicated.

At Boughter Sinak, LLC, our Fort Wayne bus accident lawyers are proud to represent victims of bus accidents, including bus passengers as well as motorists, cyclists and pedestrians. We can cut through the confusion and fight for the compensation you need and deserve.

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.
