Bus accidents can be very serious because the passengers are often thrown around inside of the bus and can collide with many different objects and surfaces. They are rarely minor affairs. For that reason, if you have been the victim of a bus accident and have suffered serious injuries, you need to contact an L.A. bus accident lawyer.

Liability issues in bus accidents are extremely complicated because buses are often owned by government entities. You will need a personal injury lawyer to handle the case. Other buses are owned by private companies, schools and tour operations.

Liability for bus accidents

Buses and their owners are liable for personal injuries to passengers, so your L.A. accident attorney will file a claim against the bus company to get you the compensation that you deserve. If the bus is owned by a private company, the accident is usually considered to be the driver’s fault.

If the bus is owned by a government entity, however, then the government may grant immunity to a bus driver. That means that the bus itself will have to be found liable for personal injuries. That can involve questioning the vehicle’s maintenance and safety record.

Bus accident causes

Bus accidents can be caused by driver negligence, speeding, poor maintenance, dangerous roadways, faulty emergency exits and driver error. An L.A. bus accident lawyer will work hard to make sure that the victims are compensated for their injuries and losses, including medical expenses, pain and suffering, lost wages and emotional distress. In extreme cases, personal injury lawyers win compensation for wrongful deaths.
