Liability In San Francisco Bus Accidents
Bus companies are considered “common carriers” under the law and are held to a high standard in terms of safety. According to the Judicial Council of California Civil Jury Instructions, “Common carriers must carry passengers [or property] safely. Common carriers must use the highest care and the vigilance of a very cautious person. They must do all that human care, vigilance, and foresight reasonably can do under the circumstances to avoid harm to passengers[or property].” Victims of bus accidents tend to suffer very serious and costly injuries including:
- Broken bones
- Spinal cord injuries
- Head trauma
- Organ damage
The FMCSA requires buses that can carry 16 or more passengers to have at least $5,000,000 worth of liability coverage. Victims of bus accidents may be able to seek justice through a bodily injury claim. Damages in a civil claim can help cover lost wages, medical bills and pain and suffering. A bus accident attorney can examine all of the the facts of your case and let you know what your legal options are.
