Large commercial vehicles could be dangerous – both to passengers as well as others on the road. Bus drivers, bus companies, and others may all cut corners, have lapses in judgment, or otherwise make unwise choices. If you or a loved one was injured in a bus collision, contact an Augusta bus accident lawyer to help you learn about and exercise your legal rights. A practiced personal injury attorney could work to help you recover the damages you deserve.

Who is Responsible for a Bus Crash?

Establishing liability is one of the most important considerations after a bus collision. Depending on the circumstances, several different parties could be responsible:

  • The bus driver may be at fault for driving recklessly or while distracted, tired, or impaired
  • The bus company may be responsible for hiring a dangerous bus driver, failing to regularly service its vehicles, or neglecting to take a bus out of service when it is defective
  • A mechanic or repair shop may share part of the blame if it was asked to fix a coach but did not do a complete or adequate repair job
  • Another motorist that cut the bus off in traffic or otherwise made the bus driver crash may be found liable

These are just some of the potentially responsible parties who may be liable to anyone injured in a bus crash. It could take the insight of an experienced motorbus crash attorney, law enforcement officers who investigated the crash, and accident reconstruction experts to piece together how the crash occurred and where the fault ought to lie. This is critical to ensuring that a lawsuit is filed against the appropriate person or persons so that the injured plaintiff might receive full compensation.

Settlement Offers in Augusta

In cases where a bus driver, bus company, or other party believes they might be liable for an injury victim’s medical bills and expenses, that party may attempt to make a settlement offer. If the plaintiff accepts such an offer, they may receive a monetary award sooner than they would if the case proceeded to trial. However, the settlement amount may be less than could be awarded by a jury.

Settlement offers are a standard method whereby businesses and insurance companies can limit their legal exposure after a crash. However, they may not always be in the best interests of the injured party. Plaintiffs who speak with a knowledgeable attorney soon after their bus accident are more likely to know how feasible it would be to receive compensation through a trial. This could help them decide whether a settlement offer is right for them.

An Augusta Bus Accident Attorney Can Help with Your Legal Needs

Because corporations and their insurance companies are often involved, lawsuits against bus companies and their employees may be complicated. An Augusta bus accident lawyer could be an invaluable aid in obtaining monetary damages to address any medical obligations, lost wages, and other losses after a crash. Reach out to a qualified attorney as soon as possible to discuss your case.
