Car and Bus Accidents - Who is Liable?
Liability is an important issue in any car accident case. In this context, liability is defined as a legal responsibility for damages or costs. Because the victim of a car accident may file a personal injury claim in civil court against the driver he or she believes is responsible, it will be necessary to prove that driver actually caused the accident and should therefore be held accountable for his or her actions.
In a car versus bus accident, liability may rest on the shoulders of the driver of the car or the bus, or even both. At times an accident of this kind may also be caused by a third party. The local government may be held accountable if poor road design or maintenance led to the accident. The manufacturer of automotive or bus parts may be held accountable if a defective product caused the accident to occur. By investigating your particular accident, an attorney can assist you in determining who should be held responsible.
