Types of and Liability in Bus Accidents
No two bus accidents are alike. And, because there are multiple bus types, understanding liability in a bus accident may not be straightforward. A bus accident may involve:
- A public bus;
- A private bus or charter bus; or
- A school bus.
In each of these bus accident types, liability may vary. If the accident was the fault of the bus driver, then the company for which the bus driver is employed may be held liable. For example, in a school bus accident caused by a negligent school bus driver, the school district may be legally implicated.
Sometimes, however, another driver may be held liable for the bus accident. Or, the bus accident may have occurred due to something unrelated from driver behavior, including a road defect, a defectively designed auto part, mismarked road signage, a pedestrian error, an animal running across the road, etc.
An attorney can help you to determine who might be held liable for your injuries, and against whom to file suit.
Damages Available after a Bus Accident
When you have been harmed in a bus accident, you deserve compensation for all losses that you have suffered, including both economic and noneconomic damages. In Florida, a bus accident claim/lawsuit may yield compensation for:
- Medical expenses;
- Lost wages;
- Future economic losses;
- Pain and suffering;
- Permanent disability; and
- Emotional anguish.
- Loss of enjoyment of life
If a bus accident results in death, surviving family members may be able to recover compensation for the above, as well as damages for funeral and burial expenses.
