Both public and private bus companies are considered common carriers under California law. Similar to other public transportation operators, bus drivers owe a high duty of care toward their passengers and are expected to take special steps to avoid causing accidents.
One common type of accident involves a bus pulling away while someone is trying to board. This can cause serious and potentially fatal injuries, especially to frail or elderly passengers. Riders can also suffer whiplash and other injuries when buses collide with other vehicles.Talk to a Bus Accident Lawyer Today
