Bus Accident

St. Louis Bus Accident Lawyers

When the Worst Happens, We’re Here to Advocate for You

Buses tend to be safer than cars—that is until an accident occurs. The size of the average bus makes for a large-scale accident. Victims are liable to suffer either serious or life-ending injuries. Fortunately, the law grants victims and their families the right to pursue compensation from the negligent, at-fault party.

If you or someone you love was injured in a bus accident, DiPasquale Moore will fight to maximize your compensation. Bus accidents often involve more than one negligent party, such as a bus driver, bus parts manufacturer, school district, and/or city bus company. This means you may have to file a claim against several parties, as well as meet multiple deadlines. Our bus accident lawyers in St. Louis, MO know how to handle complex cases such as these.

How to Prove a Bus Accident Case

Bus accident victims and their attorneys will need to prove a few factors to recover compensation. The first, and arguably the most important, is fault for the crash. No party can recover compensation if they were the one primarily at fault for the accident.

Common causes of bus accidents include:

Once the cause of the accident is uncovered, the at-fault party will need to be identified. This is easier said than done. It is best to work with a legal professional who has experience in investigating bus accidents and all their moving parts.

In addition to fault, bus accident victims must also prove the following to recover compensation:

  • The at-fault party owed them a duty of care, which exists between everyone on the road. (Bus drivers must act with care for the safety of their passengers, other drivers, and pedestrians alike).
  • The negligent act (and cause of the accident) was a violation of that duty, such as drunk and impaired driving, distracted driving, or driver fatigue/overwork.
  • The accident caused them injury and damages, such as pain and suffering, medical bills, and lost wages.

At this point, you may be wondering who is considered at fault for an accident that involves a school bus driver or city bus driver. In such cases, the employer (a school district, government agency, or other company) will be responsible for the actions of its employees. Take note, however, that a bus driver and their employer are not always at fault for a bus crash. Passenger car drivers, commercial truck drivers, and even motorcyclists and bicyclists may be at fault.
