Determining Liability After a Moncks Corner Bus Accident
Liability is not always clear-cut after a bus accident. For instance, in car accidents, liability usually lies with the at-fault party’s insurance provider. Bus accidents are different. The bus driver might not be responsible for your losses due to vicarious liability. Instead, their employer might be liable for your injury-related expenses.
We can navigate the claims process based on your case’s details. We are not afraid of pursuing compensation from a million-dollar corporation or government agency.
We manage cases involving:
Accidents Involving TriCounty Link
TriCounty Link provides public transit services for Moncks Corner, as well as greater Berkeley, Charleston, and Dorchester counties. The public agency that operates TriCounty Link may be liable when:
- An accident harms riders or other road users.
- A TriCounty Link bus hits your vehicle.
- A TriCounty Link bus hits you as a pedestrian.
Moncks Corner School Bus Accidents
If you or your child suffered injuries involving a school bus, we can pursue compensation from the liable party. We may pursue the Berkeley County School District for compensation.
Moncks Corner Accidents Involving Privately-Owned Buses
When the driver of a privately-owned coach or bus causes an accident, we can seek damages from their employer.
Let Us Help with the Moncks Corner, SC, Bus Accident Claims Process
Allow our firm to take your bus accident case off your hands. While you recover from your condition, we can:
Gather Evidence to Determine the Negligent Party
To prove negligence, we must establish these principles:
- The other party owed you a duty of care to operate their vehicle in accordance with Moncks Corner traffic laws.
- They failed to exercise this duty of care. For example, the driver may have sped, engaged in distracted driving, or driven under the influence.
- This failure led to the bus accident—whether it was a rear-end, side-impact, or head-on collision.
- You suffered non-financially and financially as a result.
We can back up these claims with evidence, such as:
- The crash report
- Traffic camera footage
- Photographs of your injuries and vehicle’s damage (if applicable)
- Witness statements
- Your employment records
- Your medical records and bills
Your personal testimony can also support your case.
Handle All Communications with the Insurance Company
If the other party’s insurance company asks for a recorded statement, decline. While giving a recorded statement, the representative may:
- Pressure you into admitting fault
- Offer a settlement that doesn’t sufficiently cover your losses
- Twist your words to fit its intentions
Your lawyer will handle all communications with the insurance company. We will provide it with all the necessary information to process your claim. We can also negotiate a settlement if an offer doesn’t meet your needs.
We will litigate your case if negotiations don’t work out.
