Buses and other types of public transportation are used by millions of people each day across the United States. Many people who have no transportation of their own rely on buses to get to work, go to school, run errands, go to doctor appointments, shop for their families, etc. Buses and other forms of mass transportation allow our economy to thrive, as well as reduce traffic and pollution. But, like any other large vehicles on the road, buses can be involved in serious accidents.

If you or a family member has been injured while riding a bus or been injured in an accident with a bus, you may be able to pursue compensation for your injuries. Bus companies are insured and insurance companies have lawyers highly skilled in mitigating the amount of fault their clients can be found liable for. Also, many buses are run by a public entity, such as a school district, and their liability may be legally protected to a certain degree.
