Personal Injury Cases in the News:
Bus Crash Lawsuit
Operators of public transportation, such as buses, owe special duties of care to their passengers. The Tacoma News-Tribune reported on January 6, 2013 that several victims of a fatal bus crash filed a lawsuit against the bus company for personal injuries. In the suit, the Plaintiff say the bus driver was traveling too fast on roads which were covered by snow and ice and overly fatigued from driving far too many hours the preceding week.
Public transportation companies are responsible for the wrongful acts and omissions of their employees, and any personal injuries that may fall on their passengers from events like sudden stops or a bus crash. Members of the public have a right to be transported safely when the fee for transportation is paid.
