Bus Passengers of both public and private bus companies are entitled to ride in safety to their destination. If someone you know was injured while riding a bus, they may be entitled to compensation for their pain and suffering and medical bills. A Bus company and its driver have a duty to provide reasonably safe passage to their passengers from the moment they begin to board the bus until they depart. Some bus drivers do not pay full attention while running their route, and some even use their phones while driving passengers. If a driver is in an accident that causes injury due to his own negligence, the bus company can be held at fault.
Pedestrians that are injured by a passing bus may also have a claim to recover fair and reasonable compensation for their injuries. If a bus struck you or someone you know while you were on the sidewalk or in a crosswalk, or riding a bicycle or other motor vehicle, you may be entitled to a financial recovery.
