Liable Parties in a Bus Accident

The people who caused your bus accident and injuries are the ones who should pay for your damages, whatever those might be. But who is it that caused the crash, exactly? There might be multiple parties, which could mean filing against multiple people. Several insurance companies could be banding together to stop your claim from getting traction. Let us stand up for you and give them the fight of their careers.

Figuring out the liable parties depends heavily on the type of bus you were riding when it crashed or the type of bus that crashed into you while you were driving. Private charter buses and those managed by the city have very different legalities surrounding them. Again, don’t worry about these details yourself. Leave everything up to Omega Law Group.

Parties that could be sued in your bus accident include:

  • Bus driver: If the bus driver who caused the crash was an independent contractor, then you might have to sue them and their privately-owned insurance policy. Employers cannot usually be held liable for the mistakes of their workers unless those workers are specifically categorized as employees.
  • Another motorist: Were you on a bus when it was hit by a reckless driver? Even though the bus driver had a duty to try to avoid any crashes, they might have had no options in your situation. Suing that third-party driver could be your avenue to getting fair compensation.
  • Bus company: The bus company that hired the bus driver could be sued if the driver is an employee or if there are negligent hiring practices at play. For example, imagine that the bus driver who caused your crash had no proper licensure to operate the vehicle but was hired anyway. This gross negligence could make the bus company liable for the accident.
  • City or municipality: For accidents involving city buses, the situation is much different. There are new legal rules that affect the case, such as a highly restrictive statute of limitations that requires you to take near-immediate action. Do not hesitate to dial (310) 504-1852 if you were hit by a bus managed by Los Angeles Metro or were hurt while riding on one.
