Who can I sue for my injuries?
You have the right to seek compensation from the responsible party. This might include the bus driver, the bus company, the city, or the bus manufacturer. If the driver was responsible for the accident, you can name him / her in your lawsuit. Often, you can name the bus driver's employer or management company as well.
If the accident was caused by poor maintenance, you can seek compensation from the bus owner or management company. This might include accidents caused by brake failure or worn tires. Sometimes, accident victims can name the city government in their claim, if the bus accident involved a city-owned vehicle.
Bus Accident Causes
- Drunk / Drugged Driving
- Tired Driving / Inattention
- Aggressive Driving / Speeding
Drunk driving is responsible for approximately 28 deaths in America every day. Drunk driving is especially dangerous when the vehicle contains passengers. Driving while tired is another common factor related to car accidents. Distracted driving – texting, eating, etc. – is equally as dangerous. In fact, some researchers believe that texting while driving is more dangerous that driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs.
