Bus accidents can have devastating consequences, including fatalities. Although all bus accidents have the potential to cause serious harm, accidents that result in fatalities are particularly tragic.

Determining Fault in a Bus Accident

Negligent Bus Driver

Determining fault in a bus accident in New York City can be a complex process that requires careful investigations and legal analysis. In many cases, the fault may lie with the bus driver, who may have been negligent in some way that caused the accident.

Negligence can take many forms, such as:

Negligent Bus Driver

If negligence on the part of the bus driver is determined to be a factor in the accident, they may be held liable for the injuries and losses suffered by the victims.

Bus accidents can also involve multiple parties who may share in the fault, such as the bus company, the manufacturer of the bus, or other drivers who may have contributed to the accident.

An experienced bus accident lawyer from Goldberg & Loren can help investigate the circumstances of the accident, gather evidence, and work to hold all negligent parties accountable for their actions.

Negligent Other Parties

In some cases, the fault for a bus accident may lie with a negligent party other than the bus driver. If another driver failed to yield or ran a red light and collided with the bus, they may be held liable for the accident.

In some cases, the bus company may be partially or wholly liable if they failed to properly maintain the bus or hire qualified drivers.

They may also be held liable if they fail to provide adequate training or supervision to their drivers.

Other potential parties that may share in the fault in a bus accident include manufacturers of defective parts or components, such as brakes or tires, or government agencies responsible for maintaining safe road conditions.

Factors That Influence Your Bus Accident Claim

The amount of compensation that a person may receive for injuries and losses resulting from a bus accident in New York City can be influenced by a range of factors. Some of the main factors that can influence your claim include:

Factors That Influence Your Bus Accident Claim

Roles of Bus Passengers in an Accident

Passengers play a critical role in providing details about the accident, injuries, and what they observed about the bus driver’s behavior prior to the incident.
