Establishing Liability in a Tampa Bus Crash

When a bus accident happens, part of our job is to establish who is at fault and how the accident occurred. We will conduct an independent investigation to show all parties who contributed to the accident.

Bus accident claims are often complex due to the number of parties involved. Besides other passengers, vehicles, or pedestrians who may have been injured, you could have multiple at-fault parties. For example, possible negligent parties in your claim could include:

  • The bus driver
  • The bus company
  • The bus manufacturer
  • Other negligent drivers

While bus accidents may seem straightforward, they rarely are. Proving liability can be challenging, especially if there are concerns of product defects with a component on the bus. One complex issue with a bus claim is the driver may not be the liable party. Unless they are independent, bus drivers work for companies. If they are in the course and scope of their employment, the bus company would be your liable party.

The financial losses could be significant, which means a massive payout for the company. You can expect that they will fight the claim as vigorously as possible. Florida is a comparative negligence state, which means you could still collect a portion of your damages if you are partially at fault.

The bus company will be looking for any potential co-defendants they can point their fingers to as well. Their goal is to reduce the overall exposure for the bus company and find other parties that should be held accountable for your damages. Even if you think you did nothing wrong, don’t assume the bus company will see it the same way. If there’s an opportunity to find fault in you, they will welcome the opportunity.

The insurance company’s loyalty is to their insured, the bus company. You are presenting a claim against them. No matter how nice they seem or say they are on your side, they are not. That is why it’s crucial to have your own legal advocate in a bus accident claim.

Recoverable Damages in a Florida Bus Accident

Depending on the circumstances, you could potentially recover compensation for the following:

  • Medical expenses to date
  • Future expected medical costs
  • Lost wages
  • Loss of earning capacity
  • Pain and suffering
  • Property damage
  • Wrongful death
