There are many different causes of bus accidents in Pittsburgh, and all of them can result in a successful personal injury claim. If you’re injured, you always have the right to seek compensation from the negligent party, no matter what caused the accident. Here is some information on the most common bus accident cases we handle.
Causes of Bus Accidents in Pittsburgh | Driver Negligence
If you were driving in an automobile and a bus crashes into you, then obviously this is the bus driver’s fault. Depending on the degree of negligence (and the bus driver’s insurance policy), you will either have a claim against the bus company’s insurance carrier or the bus driver themselves. No matter who the defendant is, the experienced personal injury attorneys at Accident & Injury Law Group will not back down until you are fully compensated.
Causes of Bus Accidents in Pittsburgh | Equipment Malfunctions
Sometimes, an equipment malfunction or defective machinery will cause the bus to crash. This dangerous situation could cause injury to another driver on the road or the passengers on the bus. When this is the case, you will most likely have a claim against the bus company or the manufacturer of the faulty equipment (or both).
Causes of Bus Accidents in Pittsburgh | Other Passengers
Bus companies have a responsibility to protect their passengers. If you are injured or assaulted by another passenger on the bus, you potentially could file an injury claim against the busing company, but this could also fall into the area of criminal law.
