There can be any number of causes for a bus accident, including some of the same reasons other motor vehicle accidents occur. However, buses and accidents associated with them have an added layer of complexity because vehicles may be significantly older than most passenger vehicles, be on a specific schedule that they don’t want to fall behind on, and the bus driver could be relying on out-of-date information on the quality of recent maintenance to the bus.

Why are bus accident claims complex?
Many personal injury attorneys in Bakersfield are adept at handling personal injury cases, but bus accidents can be much more complex and require specific expertise. Questions can come up regarding who is the true defendant, especially in the case of government-run entities such as public transportation, school buses, light rail train or taxi cabs. There can also be confusion around the laws that govern the specific handling of injury claims.
After a bus accident, insurance companies representing the bus company may contact you to discuss liability. Big businesses have a lot to lose by allowing your claim to go unsettled, so they will push you to quickly settle and sign away your rights. It’s important to find a Bakersfield personal injury attorney who fully understands the questions to be answered in cases against municipalities, school districts and private entities, and who can adequately represent you. Determining fault after a bus accident injury can be challenging, as multiple parties can be involved at various levels.
