Who Is Liable in a Bus Accident?
When a bus accident occurs, there may be multiple parties who may be liable for the accident and the resulting injuries. The liable party or parties may include the bus driver, the bus driver's employer, the bus manufacturer, the bus owner, the bus company, the bus's insurance company, and/or the insurance company of another party that was involved in the accident.
The bus driver and the bus driver's employer are almost always liable for a bus accident. The bus driver is ultimately responsible for the safety of the passengers and the safety of the vehicle. The bus driver's employer is also liable because they should have properly trained the driver to ensure that they are capable of driving safely.
The bus manufacturer may also be liable if the bus was defective in some way before the accident. The bus owner may also be liable if they hired an incompetent driver or if they were negligent in maintaining the bus.
The insurance company of another party that was involved in the accident may also be liable if the bus driver caused the accident due to the negligence of another party, such as a driver who was distracted by their cell phone.
