We Handle All Types of Bus Accidents in Aiken, SC
Bus accidents can cause injuries in many ways, whether you were a passenger or another motorist on the road. No matter how a bus driver caused your accident, we can pursue compensation by trying to hold the driver and the bus owner/operator liable. We can handle your bus accident case if:
- A bus driver hit your car, motorcycle, moped, or another motor vehicle
- You were a rider on the bus when an accident occurred
- The bus hit you while you were walking or biking
Often, the most difficult part of this process is identifying the liable parties and taking legal action. This process differs somewhat depending on who owns and operates the bus involved in your accident.
A Private Coach or Bus
If your accident involved a privately-owned bus or coach, we can help you pursue damages by taking legal action in civil court. South Carolina law allows us to hold the owner or operator of the bus vicariously liable for your damages.
Injuries sustained in a bus accident involving public transportation require us to follow very strict procedures to hold the government agency that operates them accountable for your damages.
For example, we will need to follow these procedures if your accident involved Best Friend Express in Aiken, North Augusta, or New Ellenton.
Buses from public schools also require us to follow the protocol as required in the South Carolina Tort Claims Act (SCTA). If your accident involved a bus from Aiken County Schools, or another local school district, we need to get started on your case as soon as possible.
