Chicago Bus Accident Lawyers

Who Is Responsible for an Accident?

All drivers on the road are supposed to drive with the utmost caution for other cars, trucks, motorcycles, bicycles, and pedestrians. However, bus drivers are expected to take even more care because they are traveling with many other individuals. When the bus driver is negligent or the bus has not had proper maintenance, accidents can happen and the results can be devastating. When a bus collides with another driver or pedestrian, the size of the bus can cause extensive damage to the other vehicle and the person.

Regardless if the accident involved a Chicago Transit Authority bus, school bus, megabus, or charter bus, it is important to determine what caused the accident and who can be held liable. Our Chicago bus accident attorneys at Power, Rogers & Smith, L.L.P. work to find the evidence to build a strong case on your behalf.

  • The owner of the bus
  • The driver of the bus
  • The person responsible for maintenance
  • The manufacturer of the truck / parts
