Primary Causes of Bus Accidents
Bus accidents, like other automobile crashes, can have numerous causes. While some accidents result from bad weather and other circumstances that are outside other’s control, often they are caused by someone else’s negligence.
Many of our clients have been involved in bus accidents that were caused by:
- Driver error
- Poor hiring practices
- Improperly trained drivers
- Inadequate bus maintenance
- Bus manufacturer error
Who Can Be Held Liable for a Bus Accident?
Regardless of the cause of your accident, you deserve the maximum compensation for your injuries. Our legal team at Kahn Law Firm, LLP can perform a thorough investigation of the circumstances of your accident to determine who all liable parties.
There are several potential at-fault parties in any given bus accident, including:
- Bus drivers
- Bus companies
- Bus manufactures
- Bus maintenance providers
- Parties responsible for defective roads
Since companies carry a form of insurance that covers the damages for its passengers, many bus accident claims are directed at the bus company and their insurance company. However, in some cases, the settlement offered by the bus company’s insurance adjuster is insufficient to cover all of a victim’s losses. In this situation, it is advantageous to file a personal injury claim to maximize your recovery. Your legal team can help you determine whether taking this step is necessary in your case.
