Bus Accidents – Who’s At Fault?
Operators of public buses have a responsibility to transport their passenger from point A to point B free of injury caused by negligence. Two extremely common forms of negligent behavior that cause injury on buses are not keeping the bus in proper condition (i.e. a passenger falling and injuring themselves on spilled juice that the bus driver allowed to sit on the walkway), and of course accidents on the road due to negligence. At Viacava & Cantor we take the responsibility that operators of public buses have to their passengers very seriously. Public Mass Transportation Buses commonly have special recovery laws. Due to these laws someone who is injured in an accident involving a Public Mass Transportation Bus may be entitled to more recovery than someone who is injured in a normal car accident.
I Was Involved in a Bus Accident – Now What?
Following a Public Bus Accident it is very important to preserve evidence. It is important to take photographs of all relevant subject matter including, but not limited to, damage to all vehicles, any visible defective conditions and any visible injuries. The majority of Public Buses have cameras on both the inside and outside of the bus. As long as the bus has a video of the accident or injury an attorney for Viacava & Cantor will use all available means to compel that video from the bus company to further substantiate the claim. Due to the serious nature of Public Bus Accidents the accident can often result in serious injuries such as Catastrophic Personal Injury, Traumatic Brain Injury or Wrongful Death. If you or a loved one has been injured in a bus accident, whether as a passenger on the bus or as a passenger or driver of a car that is involved in an accident with a bus the best course of action may be to immediately consult with a Fort Myers based personal injury attorney.
