Bus Accidents in North Dakota, Minnesota & Montana

Although most of us have vehicles and drive where we want to go, every once in a while, mass transit is a better option. Some people may choose a bus or train ride instead of hassling with unknown traffic or parking issues or worrying about breaking down. Others will choose mass transit because it is more economical or easier for themselves or a loved one.

Who is Liable in a Bus Accident?

When you choose a mass transit system, you assume the driver is competent, the safety equipment is in place and well maintained, and the journey will be as safe as possible. Unfortunately, sometimes someone else’s negligence causes an accident and people are hurt.

For example, if a car sneaks around railroad crossing gates and stalls, causing the train to collide with the car, the vehicle driver is responsible for the collision and subsequent injuries. If a collision occurs because a driver fails to yield to a bus driver who has the right of way, the vehicle driver who failed to yield is responsible for the damages that result.

Mass Transit Negligence

There are other times when mass transit systems are negligent and cause injuries to their passengers or other drivers. For example, if a bus driver falls asleep and gets in an accident, the bus company is accountable for any injuries caused. Likewise, if a train fails to signal its approach and causes a collision, the train company is accountable.

Either way, when you are involved with a mass transit company, you may feel like David facing Goliath. Often, mass transit systems are represented by big insurance companies that retain attorneys quickly when an accident occurs. Our bus accident attorneys will represent you, and they have the necessary experience to guide you through the process.
