Bus accidents sometimes occur when the bus driver operates the bus in a careless or negligent manner. Alternatively, another vehicle driver may cause the accident. Examples of driver negligence include the following:
- Careless or distracted driving
- Failing to obey Los Angeles traffic or San Diego laws
- Driving while under the influence of alcohol or drugs.
If the bus driver caused or contributed to the accident, you may also be able to file a claim or lawsuit against the employer bus company. In the case of city or municipal bosses, you may have a claim against the city. If you sustained injuries on a tour bus, you may be able to sue the bus company.
The damages sustained in a Los Angeles or San Diego bus accident typically depend upon the severity of the accident and the force of the collision. It can also depend upon whether or not the injured accident victim was restrained by a seat belt.
If you suffered injuries in a bus accident that resulted from someone else’s negligence, you may be able to recover your medical costs and other economic damages, as well as non-economic damages for pain and suffering.
