Bus Accident Lawyer

Bus accident claims most often involved school buses, metro transit systems, or over the road tourism or commercial coach operators such as Greyhound.  

These claims can be complicated by a number of factors, including personal injury or wrongful death claims by multiple victims. While bus operators typically carry large commercial insurance policies, the presence of multiple victims can quickly exhaust available coverage limits. Denver bus accident attorneys therefore often best serve their clients by the timely filing of a damage claim. However, equally important is thoroughly investigating all of the facts and circumstances of a bus accident, and identifying all liable parties, which may include a bus driver, the owner or operator of a bus, another at-fault driver of party, and even your own insurance carrier in cases where a victim is covered by optional uninsured/underinsured motorist coverage.

Bus Injury Claims in Colorado  

For each identified defendant, five elements must be proven: 

  • The defendant had a duty of care. 
  • Defendant breached duty of care.  
  • Breach resulted in harm to the victim. 
  • Resulting harm was foreseeable.  
  • Your injuries were a direct result of the defendant's breach of duty.  

Because victims are passengers of a bus operator, a personal injury or wrongful death claim will generally involve at least two defendants in cases where a bus operator is not found at primary fault: The bus operator as well as the other at fault parties. While this can provide multiple avenues of compensation for victims and families, it also complicates a claim as defendants and their attorneys work to minimize their own liability.  

In addition to thoroughly investigating all of the facts and circumstances of a bus accident, and identifying all liable parties and their insurance companies, a complete damage claim must be made. Damages may include:  

  • Economic damages: Compensate victims for real economic losses, such as medical bills, lost wages, property damage and the cost of home care or rehabilitation.  
  • Noneconomic damages: Include things like pain and suffering and loss of earning ability. 
  • Punitive damages: In cases where willful or malicious acts cause or contribute to loss, or other actionable causes create loss under Colorado law, additional damages may be pursued.  

Bus accident victims may include: Bus passengers, drivers or occupants of another vehicle hit by a bus, or cyclists, pedestrians or other vulnerable road users, such as motorcycle riders, involved in a collision with a bus. 

Common causes of bus accidents include:  

  • Distracted driving on the part of a bus driver or other involved motorist.  
  • Drowsy driving. 
  • Speeding or other violation of law.  
  • Poor maintenance, including tire or brake failure or other mechanical failure on the bus.  
  • Roadway departure or buses that climb sidewalks or curbs.  
  • Collisions caused by bicyclists or motorcycle riders being pinched by a turning bus. 

Because of the complexity of personal injury or wrongful death claims involving Colorado bus accidents, early consultation with an experienced bus injury law firm in Denver is the best thing you can do to protect your rights and the financial wellbeing of you and your family.
