Can I Sue For a Charter Bus Accident?

Attorney contributor Marc Lenahan is an experienced bus accident lawyer who represented victims injured in bus and auto accidents. Marc recently discussed the legal rights of injured victims of charter bus accidents and the financial compensation they might recover by filing a civil lawsuit.

"Accidents involving a charter bus can happen for a variety of reasons, including defects with the bus itself, the corporation that owns the charter bus, and the traffic that surrounds the vehicle. Internal factors in these instances may lead to complications for the driver, resulting in an unexpected collision and possibly bodily harm to the passengers. When an accident occurs, it is necessary to investigate to identify what caused it. Private charter transportation companies are responsible for ensuring the vehicle is in sound shape and that their drivers are professionals. Additionally, they should regularly do maintenance checks on the vehicle and conduct background checks on their drivers to reduce the risk of preventable incidents. If the transportation company neglected to regulate safely, they could be held liable for injuries related to the accident."

"Through the aid of an experienced bus accident lawyer, victims of these incidents may be able to identify the various elements that contributed to the accident. Injured victims may be entitled to financial compensation by filing a lawsuit against a third party, such as a negligent transportation company. For example, if the driver had a history of reckless driving, but the employer allowed them to continue to drive, they could be deemed negligent. Victims involved in a private charter bus accident should seek the aid of an experienced bus accident lawyer to explore their legal rights fully."
