Factors that can lead to a bus accident include:
- A bus driver who was being reckless
- A bus driver who was falling asleep at the wheel
- A bus driver who was speeding
- Brake failure
- Other mechanical failure
- A bus driver failing to react appropriately to other traffic
- Poor road conditions
- A bus company that did not properly train drivers
- A bus company that hired drivers with poor driving records
- A bus company that failed to maintain or repair the bus
Seeking financial compensation after being hit by a bus can be complicated because there are often multiple parties involved. These may include the bus driver, the bus company, the school system, the JTA, drivers of cars involved in an accident, drivers of trucks involved in an accident, trucking companies and manufacturers of buses and bus parts. Each party can be represented by different insurance companies — and different lawyers.
Our attorneys can guide you through the process
It’s normal to have questions after being hurt in an accident. Can you sue a bus company for an injury? Possibly, if the company failed to properly maintain the bus or hired an unqualified driver, for example. Are bus drivers liable for your injuries? Possibly, if it is determined the driver was negligent, for instance by speeding or texting.
Figuring out who is at fault can be complicated. And determining fault is very important when seeking financial compensation.
That’s why it’s important to get the facts about what happened. Our legal team investigates your bus accident and gathers evidence. We carefully review accident reports, medical records, maintenance records and other documentation. We identify and interview witnesses. If needed, we consult accident reconstruction experts and other specialists.
