Bus drivers have a huge responsibility when they’re operating a bus in Texas. This is why they require a special license to operate this vehicle. If you or a loved one have been hurt in a bus accident, you’re entitled to compensation. A bus accident attorney from Lassiter Law can investigate your accident and determine liability quickly.
Who’s Liable for Bus Accidents?
Our years of experience allow us to investigate accidents thoroughly to determine the appropriate liability. Most often, the bus driver is liable. However, the bus company or even the manufacturer of the bus may also be at fault for the bus accident. At Lassiter Law, we work diligently to obtain a strong outcome for the case at hand.
What Are Some Laws Pertaining to Bus Accidents in Texas?
According to Texas’ statute of limitations, injured victims have two years from the date of their accident to file a personal injury lawsuit. Furthermore, in Texas, negligence can be shared fault. This means that the percentage of fault of both parties is determined and the liable party must only pay that percentage of the damages.
