Some Of The Factors Considered In Bus Accidents

1. Driver Negligence:

If the bus driver was operating the vehicle in a careless or reckless manner, such as driving while distracted, under the influence of alcohol or drugs, or violating traffic laws, they may be held responsible for the accident.

2. Company Negligence:

If the bus company hired an unqualified driver, failed to train the driver adequately, did not enforce safety regulations, or did not maintain the bus properly the company may be held responsible.


3. Unsafe Road Conditions:

Sometimes, an accident may be caused by hazardous road conditions such as potholes, inadequate signage, poor road design, or construction work. In such cases, the government agency responsible for maintaining the road may be held liable.


4. Other Drivers Negligence:

If the accident was caused by the negligence of another motorist on the road, that driver might be held accountable.

What Is Comparative Negligence In California Bus Accident Cases?

In California bus accident cases, “pure comparative negligence” is the rule used to determine damages. This means even if you’re partially at fault, you can still claim compensation. However, your compensation will be reduced by your percentage of fault. For example, if you’re found 20% at fault, your damages will be reduced by 20%. As a seasoned personal injury lawyer, I’ll work relentlessly to present a robust case, minimizing your percentage of fault and maximizing your rightful compensation.
