Buses are considered common carriers in Virginia. This means that city, county, charter and commercial buses owe a high standard of care for the passengers riding on them. If one of their employees is negligent or the bus is in ill repair, and there is a bus accident, then the company may be liable for that person’s actions. The passengers may have the right to seek compensation for their injuries following the bus accident.
Bus passengers are not offered some of the same physical protections on a bus as they are in a car, such as seat belts and airbags. Injuries people suffer as a result of a bus accident can be more severe than car accident injuries. These injuries may include:
School bus accidents are especially common. Children in school bus accidents are more likely to suffer serious injuries. This is because school buses often lack up-to- date safety features that city buses may have including anti-lock brakes. If you lost a loved one in any type of bus accident, you may be able to bring a wrongful death case against the parties responsible.
