Salt Lake City Bus Accident Attorneys

Call (801) 762-6808 for Experienced & Knowledgeable Legal Services in Utah

From public transit to school buses, many Salt Lake City residents use a bus to get around each day. Although this form of transportation is considered one of the safest, bus accidents are often devastating in nature due to the size and weight of these vehicles. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) states approximately 300 fatal bus accidents occur every year. But when there are no deaths, they typically result in severe injuries and significant property damage.

If you or a loved one has been injured in a bus accident in Utah, our Salt Lake City lawyers at Lowe Law Group is ready to help you recover the compensation you deserve to pay for medical costs, lost wages, as well as pain and suffering. We have won millions of dollars won on behalf of our clients by providing them with effective and personalized legal solutions to hold the negligent parties liable for their reckless actions.

Who is Liable in a Bus Accident Case?

Buses are one of the safest ways to travel, but when an accident does occur, the results can be tragic. They can also be very complex legal cases to handle. Determining who is liable in a bus accident case is a challenging and complicated situation to handle. There are many parties that could be responsible for the situation, which is why determining liability must be handled by a professional attorney. The following parties may be liable:

  • The driver
  • The bus maintenance company
  • The entity that provided the training

There are many facets to being involved in a bus or transit accident, which is why our legal team is here to help you build your case and file a claim. We also handle mass torts for multiple injured parties.

Holding the Negligent Party Responsible

Bus Accident Liability in Salt Lake City

Since buses offer transportation services to the public or certain individuals as part of a business, they adhere to common carrier law that is regulated at a local, state, and federal level. Common carriers have a higher duty of care and vigilance for their passengers’ safety. When a bus operator, company, or even manufacturer fails to adhere to that higher duty of care and this failure results in an accident which causes injury, they could be held liable for their actions in civil court.

The following are the most common types of bus accidents:

  • Public transit bus accidents
  • School bus accidents
  • Private, charter, and commercial bus accidents
  • Shuttle bus accidents
  • Freight bus accidents

In addition, bus accidents can also involve negligent drivers in passenger vehicles. Whether a car crashes into a bus while both vehicles are in motion or if a car collides into pedestrians at a bus stop, injured parties can hold the negligent driver accountable for his/her actions.
