Because the sheer nature of commercial buses are multiple passengers, often times we see injuries for groups of people of 10 or more. Some of the most common bus accidents are;
- charter buses
- party buses
- school buses
- public transport buses
- and casino ride-share buses
People who use these commercial transportation lines should not be further burdened by an accident or injury that was no fault of their own. Large commercial bus accidents happen all the time and whether it's a minor fender bender or a more serious bus accident, people who were using the bus for transport often wonder where to turn or what their rights are.
You are owed Utmost Duty of Care
If you were a passenger on a bus that was involved in an accident, the bus company, whether public or private, owes you the "utmost duty of care" associated with being a common carrier.
This "duty of utmost care" is higher than the negligence duty owed by the bus company to drivers of other vehicles and pedestrians. To know and protect your rights as a bus accident victim, it is best that you seek the experience and knowledge of a bus accident lawyer immediately.
If you have been seriously injured in an accident involving a bus, you need the advice of an experienced California personal injury lawyer.

School Bus Accidents - Know Your Rights
Putting our kids in the hands of other people driving them around is always fearful for parents. You never know when the driver is distracted or worse, not adequately qualified.
School districts also have a duty to protect and if that duty is not met, there could be liability factors. School bus accidents can be deadly, primarily because the lack of seatbelt and safety features we see in traditional cars. No airbags, seatbelts, safety harnesses and the ability to walk around the bus can be a recipe for disaster.
