- Drunk Driving
- Faulty machinery/manufacturing
- Improper driving techniques
- Heavily populated or crowded areas and failure to maneuver properly
Municipal Bus Accident Cases
Cases involving public buses can be more complex than others. City buses are usually owned and operated by a municipality or county. Liability laws covering public entities may be different from those covering private businesses, including different timelines and different filing procedures.
It is important to speak with an attorney with experience in government claims if your matter involves public transportation. We can help begin building your case to ensure you get the fair compensation and justice you deserve following your public bus accident.
