Delray Beach Bus Accidents
While bus drivers must obtain a special designation on their license and must pass driving tests and background checks, there is no way to prevent accidents from occurring from time to time.
The size and sturdiness of a bus can work in favor of its occupants during an accident but can make injuries and property damage worse for others involved in the crash. Most buses are not equipped with seat belts, which can increase the chance of severe injuries.

The Responsible Parties
Here at Ben Crump Law, PLLC, we have a resourceful and investigative staff that will look into your accident and identify the responsible party or parties. Bus accidents are often more complex than other motor vehicle collisions, and there might be multiple people or entities who are liable.
A few of the potentially responsible parties for your Delray Beach bus accident include:
The Bus Driver
Our team will determine whether the bus driver was violating a traffic law at the time of the accident. If the driver was speeding, running a red light, driving recklessly or carelessly, or simply acting with negligence, we will find out and use it against them when pursuing compensation. We will also determine if the driver was not properly licensed or vetted.
The Bus Company
Since the driver is most likely an employee of the bus company, a Delray Beach bus accident lawyer may be able to hold the company vicariously liable.
Just because the accident involved a bus does not necessarily mean the bus driver was the only at-fault party. If the actions of another driver caused or contributed to the accident, we may be able to hold them (and their insurance company) liable as well.
If the bus that hit you was part of a municipally owned fleet, we may be able to take action against the local government or municipality and collect damages from it.
Other Responsible Parties
Since every auto accident is different, it is not possible to list every party that might share in the liability for your Delray Beach bus accident. Our investigators will identify who was responsible, however, and we will start building a case against them right away.
