What is the liability of a bus company?

The liability of buses, taxis and other companies that engage in the business of shuttling people or goods are governed by special rules regarding liability. These rules cover many different kinds of companies including ocean liners, airlines, bus companies and taxicabs. Usually, you can prove your claim against one of these common carriers by establishing that they were negligent. These rules primarily cover city operated buses.

Truck accident litigation can present unique problems

Truck accidents are usually much more catastrophic than standard personal-use vehicle accidents. Trucking accidents are more dangerous because a fully loaded dump truck or 18-wheeler semi-truck can weigh over 25 times the standard sedan or SUV. This great disparity in weight means that your car will fold like a deck of cards if it is hit by one of these monsters. This also does not include the added risk of the freight the truck may be carrying. If you are struck by a truck carrying explosive materials or caustic chemicals, then your injuries may be exacerbated.
