- School buses
- Public transit buses

- Private company buses
If you or a loved one has been injured in or by any of the following buses, tell us about your case. We might be able to represent you for free unless we win.
Possible Liable Parties in Bus Accidents
Because buses are usually owned by different companies and entities, liability might fall on different parties. It’s also possible that more than one party may be responsible for the accident. In most cases, liability tends to fall on:
- the bus driver;
- the bus company or operator;
- the bus manufacturer or maintenance provider;
- government entities in charge of road maintenance;
- other motorists; or
- contractors or subcontractors.
Elements of a Successful Bus Accident Claim
In order to bring a successful claim against the other party, your case must first satisfy certain elements. To begin with, you must prove that the other party owed you a duty of care. What this means is that they were responsible for your safety, say, for example, a bus driver. You must also prove that they breached this duty, which is what amounts to negligence. Lastly, you must demonstrate that you suffered injuries and losses due to the other party’s breach of duty of care.
