Owings Mills Bus Accident Lawyer
While driving is the most common way to get around, not everyone in Maryland owns a car. Some people use public transportation to get from Point A to Point B. Buses are a popular option in Owings Mills and other areas of Maryland. Many areas are served by the Regional Transportation Agency and Maryland Transit Administration.
If you live in the city, riding a bus can be a cheap and convenient option. However, it can also be dangerous if the bus driver is not fully trained or is negligent in some way. It is also possible that drivers of other vehicles can cause serious accidents.
Buses are fairly sturdy. They have a lot of safety features and can withstand a lot of impact in the event of a crash. Still, they can cause serious injuries.
If you have been injured in a bus accident, see how the lawyers at Furman | Honick Law can help you get full and fair compensation. Our experienced Owings Mills bus accident lawyers are ready and willing to work for you.
Types of Bus Accidents
There are several ways in which you may be affected by a bus accident:
- When you are riding the bus and the bus driver causes the accident. If you were injured because you were riding a bus and the driver of the bus caused an accident, you may be able to sue the bus driver and the bus company. A bus company could be held liable if a driver causes an accident. They could also be at fault if they failed to maintain the bus and that led to the crash.
- When you are in another vehicle or are a pedestrian and the bus driver causes the accident. If you were in another vehicle, on a bicycle, or on foot at the time of the crash, and a bus driver caused an accident, you may be able to sue. Again, both the bus driver and the bus company they work for could both be held liable.
- When another driver causes the accident. If you were driving or riding a bus and another driver caused an accident, you may be able to sue that driver if they caused you to suffer injuries. While you can file an insurance claim and receive compensation, sometimes that’s not enough. You can file a lawsuit and sue the negligent parties in order to maximize your damages. However, you will need to prove that that driver was at fault for the accident.
