Compensation for a Bus Accident
If you have injuries in a bus accident, you may pursue an insurance claim or legal action. Those injured in a bus accident may have a claim against their own insurance company for medical payments, income loss benefits, uninsured or underinsured motorist benefits, funeral expenses, and other losses. If you suffer serious bodily injury, you may qualify to bring a third party claim.
Our lawyers can evaluate the situation. It is our goal to collect the compensation that is available for you in the legal paths that are appropriate. With our experience on your side, you don’t have to worry about what to do following a bus accident. We take care of everything.
Common Types of Bus Incidents and Accidents
Here are some ways that bus accidents and incidents occur:
- Improper lane changes
- An unqualified or poorly trained driver
- Driving for too many hours without rest
- Departing before all passengers have safely embarked
- Parking in an unsafe place
- Poorly loading luggage and cargo, weight and balance problems
- Too many people on the bus
- Inadequate inspection and maintenance
- Failing to make adjustments when weather or road conditions are poor
- Driving distracted
- Drunk driving, driving under the influence
- Poor bus design or manufacturing errors
A bus operator must be appropriately trained and licensed. They should always operate with care for the passengers and load they are carrying.
Following a bus accident, it can be hard to know what factors played a role in the crash. There may be things that happened long before the crash occurred that played a role. For example, a bus company skipping important training may happen in the days, weeks, or months leading up to the crash.
As your lawyers, we go further to identify the causes of the crash. Then, we pursue compensation from parties who have legal responsibility based on Pennsylvania law.

Bus Accident FAQs
Can I receive compensation for a bus accident in Philadelphia?
If you are injured in a bus accident, there is a good chance that you may receive compensation in Philadelphia. A no-fault insurance claim or at-fault liability may be available to you. If you have serious injuries, you may seek damages outside the Pennsylvania no-fault system.
Why do I need to work with a specialized bus accident lawyer?
Bus accident claims often involve complex evaluation of the events surrounding the accident. Accident reconstruction may explain the sequence of events and crash mechanics. Large dollar amounts may be involved, and there may be a significant dispute about damages. A specialized bus accident lawyer can effectively represent your interests.
I have serious injuries from a bus accident! Is the bus company liable?
The bus company may be liable for serious injuries from a bus accident if they were negligent. Negligence is a lack of care. A driving error or traffic violation may be sufficient negligence to create legal liability. They may also be responsible based on more serious misconduct like reckless driving or intentional harm.
