Liability In Boyle Heights Bus Accidents
Buses 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].” The FMCSA requires buses that can carry 16 or more passengers to have at least $5,000,000 worth of liability coverage.
