Your bus accident lawyer in Tucson, AZ, from Zanes Law will investigate every bus accident that we handle in Tucson. We look into the ownership of the bus and the circumstances that can affect responsibility.
We gather information about what led up to the crash to determine who might be liable for your losses. Sometimes, more than one entity is at fault.
Our investigation can include many things, including:
Every case is different, so the steps we take in your case might vary from these items. We will do what is appropriate based on the circumstances.
The law requires that we be able to prove all four of the following elements to hold someone responsible for your losses from a bus accident:
The facts of your situation will determine whether all four elements for liability are present.
We might have to follow a different claims process, depending on whether the accident involved a school bus, a privately-owned bus, or a bus owned or operated by a government agency. The laws that govern these cases can vary accordingly.
Tucson’s public transportation system includes Sun Tran buses, which are operated by the City of Tucson. Since the City of Tucson is a government entity, the rules and liability will be different than if we went after damages from a privately-owned tour, shuttle, or sightseeing bus company.
Some school buses are part of a private school, while others are under the control of a government agency, like a public school district. We will have to proceed based on the ownership status of the bus. If a private school owns or operates the bus, we can go after money damages the same way we would against any individual or company that is not part of a government entity.
We cannot say how much compensation you might get for your injuries from a bus accident in Tucson until we talk with you and investigate your situation. The amount of compensation you can pursue will depend on the unique facts of your case, like the severity of your injuries and whether you suffered long-term impairment.
Some of the damages we have won for our clients include:
These are but a few examples of the types of damages you might have from a Tucson bus accident.
Arizona’s statute of limitations (12-542) generally limits the time that you have to file a lawsuit against the liable party involved in your accident.
