people on foot—tend to sustain very serious, life-altering injuries. In many cases,

life, as well as the lives of his or her family members and loved ones.

Who Is Liable for Bus Accidents?
Bus accident cases are not like other types of
auto accident claims. These cases tend to be very complex due to the many nuances involved
in establishing liability. Determining who is liable for the accident
is critical to your claim, but doing so is not always easy. Even when
a bus driver is clearly negligent, his or her employer could be liable
for the accident due to the fact that the driver was both an employee
of the company and “on the clock” when the accident occurred.
In other instances, an entirely separate third party could be partially
or wholly liable for the accident.
In any given bus accident case, any of the following people/parties could
be legally liable:
- The bus driver
- The company that owns or leases the bus
- A government or municipal entity
- The person responsible for hiring the driver
- The person/party responsible for bus maintenance
- The manufacturer of a defective bus/bus part
- A construction company (if the roadway was defective)
- Another motorist, pedestrian, or bicyclist
In addition to these potentially liable parties, another third party could
be liable for the accident; it all depends on the circumstances of the
crash and exactly what happened. At Lowe Law Firm, our bus accident lawyers
and team of legal assistants, accident reconstructionists, medical experts,
and other specialists know how to thoroughly investigate bus accident
claims in order to determine how the accident occurred and, most importantly,
who is at fault.
Damages in Bus Accident Cases
Whether you were the passenger of a bus that crashed or were hit by a bus
while driving your own vehicle, you are likely to be dealing with significant
injuries. Often, bus accident injuries are catastrophic, meaning they
completely alter the injured individual’s life, as well as the lives
of his or her loved ones. Catastrophic injuries can lead to exorbitant
medical bills, including massive ongoing and future medical costs. Additionally,
if you were injured in a bus accident, you will probably have to take
some time off work to get medical treatment and recover. If your injuries
were severe, you may be unable to return to work for months, years, or
even the remainder of your lifetime. This can add a serious financial
strain on top of everything else you are going through.
At Lowe Law Firm, we help bus accident victims nationwide seek compensation for
all of their damages, including but not limited to:
- Emergency medical treatment
- Ongoing medical care
- Rehabilitation therapy
- Medications and medical devices
- Medical equipment
- Modifications to the home
- Lost income/wages
- Lost or reduced earning capacity
- Physical pain and emotional suffering
- Emotional distress
- Treatment for emotional/mental health issues
If your family member died in a bus accident, we can also help you file a
wrongful death claim and seek compensation for your losses, including medical bills, funeral
costs, and loss of love, companionship, and support, among others.
