What is Considered a Bus Accident?
A bus accident occurs when a passenger is injured due to the negligence of another party while on a bus. These accidents can occur while the bus is in motion or while it is parked. Common causes of bus accidents include collisions with other vehicles, bicycles, or even pedestrians. In many cases, bus accidents are caused by negligent drivers who fail to take the necessary precautions to keep buses and other vehicles separate.
Who is Liable for a Bus Accident?
In most cases, the driver of the vehicle that collides with the bus is at fault for the accident. This is because the driver of the car is responsible for paying attention to the road and being aware of other vehicles.
However, the bus company can be liable if:
- The driver of the bus was negligent in how they were driving
- The driver of the car was driving recklessly and caused the accident
- The bus company failed to properly train their drivers
At Robins Cloud LLP, our Houston bus accident lawyers can help you explore all of your legal options and determine who is liable for your injuries. We can also help you file a personal injury claim to recover compensation for your medical bills, lost wages, and other damages.
What Damages are Recoverable in a Bus Accident Case?
The amount of compensation you can receive will depend on the severity of your injuries. In most cases, you will be eligible to receive compensation for your medical bills, lost wages, and other damages. You may also be eligible for non-economic damages, such as pain and suffering.
You may be able to recover compensation for the following damages in a bus accident case:
- Medical bills
- Lost wages
- Physical and emotional pain and suffering
- Property damage
- Punitive damages
Depending on the circumstances of your case, you may also be eligible to receive punitive damages. Punitive damages are meant to punish the at-fault party for their reckless or negligent behavior. These damages are often awarded in cases involving drunk drivers or reckless drivers who cause bus accidents.
In order to recover punitive damages, you will need to prove:
- The at-fault party acted with malice
- The at-fault party's actions were particularly egregious
Our legal team can help you determine how much compensation you are eligible to receive. We will work to get you the maximum amount of compensation you are owed.
What Should I Do After a Bus Accident?
After a bus accident, you should always seek medical attention. You should also contact the police and file a report. If you were injured in the bus, you should contact your insurance company and let them know.
If you or someone you love was injured in a bus accident, you deserve to be fairly compensated for your injuries. At Robins Cloud LLP, we can help you seek the maximum amount of compensation you are owed. Let us help you make the best possible recovery from injury and move forward.
