Vehicle Accidents in California
Unfortunately, California is one of the states that hold the highest injury rates that result from bus accidents. Even though eight people received minor injuries, it’s very important that they keep getting examined by a medical professional because not all injuries show signs immediately after an accident. Some injuries develop over time and can be overlooked until complications arise.
There are multiple reasons why bus accidents occur but figuring out who to hold responsible can be complicated. A variety of factors must be considered when determining liability for a bus accident, such as the condition of the bus, the condition of the road, and whether either driver partook in negligent behavior. Some potentially liable parties include bus companies, tour operators, bus drivers, bus maintenance companies, bus manufacturers, and even the government. An experienced attorney will seek all potentially liable parties to help injured victims receive compensation for current and future medical expenses, loss of wages, and more.
