Liability in Bus Accident Cases

In Maryland, commercial and public bus companies are known as “common carriers.” This means that bus operators are required to exercise a very high degree of care for the safety of their passengers and other motorists on the road.

In many cases, bus accidents are caused by bus driver error, either due to lack of experience and/or training, or even inattention. Additionally, driver impairment is another common cause, whether due to alcohol, drugs, or even fatigue.

Bus companies can also be held liable for these accidents. If a collision occurs due to a defective or faulty bus component, the company could be held liable for improper maintenance, which typically occurs to keep costs down.

Other motorists may also collide with buses. The roadways buses use may be defective.
