Bus Accidents and Wrongful Death

If you lost a loved one in a bus accident, you maybe be able to sue the negligent party for wrongful death compensation. This includes funeral expenses, medical costs, lost consortium, and other damages. Visit our wrongful death page for additional information about these claims.

Bus Accident Lawsuits: What You Should Know

If you or someone you love suffered a serious injury in a bus accident, you can seek compensation from the driver, the bus management company, the manufacturer, or the local government (if the bus is city-owned). The specific details of your case determine whom you will name in the lawsuit.

  • The Bus Driver
    If the driver acted negligently, you can name him / her in your suit. Acts of negligence might include drunk driving, texting, or aggressive driving. A skilled lawyer can help you demonstrate driver negligence.
  • The Bus Company
    Some bus accidents are caused by faulty maintenance and other mechanical failures. If one of these factors caused the accident, you may be able to prove the bus company did not provide a safe bus.
  • The City
    Many buses are used for public transportation. If the bus was owned by the city, you can sue the city for negligence. Even if the bus driver acted carelessly, it is still the responsibility of the city to hire capable drivers.

Types of Bus Accidents

Three common types of bus accidents involve public transportation buses, commercial buses, and school buses. Although school buses are designed to keep children safe, a startling number of these vehicles are involved in serious collisions every year. If your child suffered an injury in a school transportation accident, you may be able to seek compensation from the school for your child's damages.
