Public Transportation Accident Cases We Handle
Passenger safety and the safety of other drivers/pedestrians on the road should be priority number one for any public transportation company, school bus company, or individual driver. When safety measures fall short and an individual is injured as a result of an accident, the injured victim may have a claim for compensation.
Some of the most common types of public transportation accidents include:
- School bus accidents, whether caused by the bus driver or the driver of another vehicle
- Sudden stopping or slamming on the brakes by drivers
- Speeding or taking turns too quickly
- Cutting drivers off or failing to look and yield for those with the right of way
- Hitting pedestrians in crosswalks
- Sudden change of direction, causing passengers to fall out of their seats
- Driver negligence, driver distraction, and other driver errors on the road
- Bus maintenance and equipment failure issues
These and other acts can lead to serious crashes, resulting in severe bodily injury and wrongful death.
Liability in Bus Accident Cases
Like any other type of motor vehicle accident claim, bus accident cases revolve around the issue of liability. To bring a claim, you will need to prove that another person or party is liable for your injuries and damages. However, unlike in standard car accident claims, liability in bus accident and public transportation accident cases is very complex.
In a given bus accident claim, any of the following people/parties might be liable:
- The bus driver
- The company that owns or leases the bus
- The bus driver’s employer
- Another motorist
- A bicyclist or pedestrian
- The manufacturer of a defective vehicle/vehicle part
- A construction company responsible for designing/building a defective roadway
- The entity responsible for bus maintenance
Identifying the liable party is a complex process, typically involving the expertise of accident reconstructionists and other experts. At Maloney Law Group, P.L.L.C., we work with a team of skilled specialists who not only help us determine how the accident happened and who is liable but also the full extent of your damages. This allows us to build a clear, comprehensive picture of your losses which we can then present to the insurance company, the judge, or the jury.
