Liability In Train Accidents Involving Buses
Train operators have a responsibility to take every precaution in order to avoid accidents. They are trained to watch the tracks and apply their brakes in order to avoid accidents. Failure to apply the brakes in time to avoid an accident may impose civil liability on the company responsible for the train. Bus companies may also face liability for an accident with a train. Companies that operate buses have a responsibility to make sure that their buses engines are in good condition. When a bus company fails to keep their vehicles in reasonably good condition they may face civil liability in the event of an accident. Victims may be entitled to financial compensation for their injuries including lost wages, medical bills and pain and suffering. A bus accident attorney can investigate your claim free of charge and let you know what your rights are.
