California is arguably one of the most populated states in the U.S.. One of the easiest ways to legitimize that fact is by traveling on a almost always crowded freeway at nearly any given time. Public transit is always high in demand. Buses are constant on almost every corner, carrying civilians to their final destinations. Buses are just as prone to accidents as any other form of transportation regardless of the vehicle’s driver. Choosing to take a bus from point A to point B puts one in a position of vulnerability, therefore, forfeiting power over transit control. The Orland bus accident was horrific and a third party driver or the busing company may be liable for wrongful death, lost wages, medical expenses, etc.
Liability Will Likely Be Accessed Under A Negligence Theory
It’s not always the driver who is at fault during an accident. Sometimes it is the negligence of another driver on the road causing a series of unfortunate events to take place. Much like the recent, tragic occurrence near Orland, California, one hundred miles north of San Francisco, the driver may or may not be at fault. Another driver failed to follow the rules of the road for unknown reasons, causing a fatal accident and injuring many other innocent people.
At times, bus accidents can involve many plaintiffs and defendants, so it is crucial that you are represented by a professional, experienced attorney with a keen sense for these types of legal incidents. It is a traumatic event often involving physical and emotional suffering.
Insurance companies are likely to contact the victim of an accident soon after the events take place. It is vital that you immediately consult with a qualified attorney before dealing with financial matters. If you are ever contacted by insurance adjusters following a motor vehicle collision, it would be in your best interest to ask to be contacted at a different time, and then speak with your attorney before giving out any information.
