Identifying the Liable Party in a Clemson, SC, Bus Accident Case
How we approach pursuing compensation in your case depends significantly on who owned and operated the bus. The doctrines of sovereign immunity and/or vicarious liability often apply. When we review your case, we can explain how South Carolina law may affect your case.
If the bus involved in your accident belongs to the Pickens County School District or is a CAT (Clemson Area Transit) bus, we need to follow a specific process to hold the government agency liable. When the bus belongs to a private individual or company, we will try to hold the owner liable under vicarious liability laws.
At George Sink, P.A. Injury Lawyers, we can help you pursue a payout based on the facts of your case. Let us help you identify the liable party and take legal action.

This process limits how long we have to take legal action and requires us to take several other steps before we can file a lawsuit in your case. We know what it takes to pursue compensation in a bus accident case no matter who is at fault. Let us get started today.
