Bus Accident Attorneys
Nationwide Legal Representation for Injured Victims
Bus accidents are some of the most devastating of all motor vehicle crashes. Victims—whether they are bus passengers, motorists in other vehicles, or people on foot—tend to sustain very serious, life-altering injuries. In many cases, victims die as a result of these injuries. The aftermath of a bus accident typically has an immense impact on just about every aspect of the victim’s 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.
