Riding the bus does not ensure your safety

Public transportation is not always safe.

Most people do not think about the possibility of getting into an accident while taking public transportation because we often trust buses to drive us and our children around safely.

Although bus accidents are rare, they pose a greater threat because buses are large and passengers typically don’t buckle up.

Suing a Bus Company: Limitation on Damages

Usually, when suing a government agency, there is a limit to how much money you can recover.

“Non-economic damages,” like pain and suffering, as well as punitive damages often employed to hold the responsible party accountable, are commonly denied by the state.

Reasons You Should Seek Legal Action Against a Bus Company

If you were physically harmed, lost money, or your property was damaged in some way, then filing a personal injury lawsuit might be the best route to getting the compensation you deserve. If the bus company or any of its employees had something to do with causing the accident, they can be held responsible for their actions.

As is customary with car accidents, the root cause may not be immediately clear. It might be something driver-related, an issue to do with the vehicle itself, outside conditions or something else.

Although the bus company will investigate the accident, an injury victim may never know what is discovered as a result of that research. We recommend working with a personal injury attorney to ensure there is an investigation and that you are kept informed about what exactly happened.
