Charleston Bus Accident Lawyer

Many Charleston-area residents depend on buses to get around the area. Whether we are talking about a school bus transporting children or commuters taking a DASH shuttle to work, we rely on operators and drivers to provide safe, reliable transportation. Unfortunately, as with any motor vehicle a bus can be involved in a serious accident that places passengers–and other people on the road–at risk of serious injury or death.

If you, or someone that you love, has been injured in an accident involving a private or public bus or shuttle, it is important that you act quickly in asserting your legal right to compensation. Our Charleston bus accident lawyer can help. The Stanley Law Group has over 60 years of combined experience representing accident victims and their families. We know how to properly investigate a bus accident, determine all of the individuals and legal entities that may be responsible under the law, and act on your behalf to negotiate a settlement or take your case to court.

Why You Need to Work with an Experienced South Carolina Bus Accident Attorney

A complicating factor in many Charleston bus accidents is the fact more than one party may be responsible for a victim’s injuries. Obviously, the first thing we look at is the bus driver and whether they were negligent. The company that employs that driver is also vicariously liable for any negligence. In some cases the companies responsible for manufacturing or repairing the bus may be at-fault for a medical defect that led to an accident. And of course, the accident itself may be the result of another driver who collided with the bus.

Another potential complication is that many buses are operated by public authorities such as the City of Charleston or a local school district. Personal injury claims against the government must comply with certain special rules that do not apply to similar lawsuits against private parties. Failure to strictly comply with these rules often leads to the dismissal of a claim regardless of its merits.

A final consideration is that due to their very nature as a means of public transport, bus accidents tend to produce multiple victims. It is not uncommon for dozens of people to be injured–even killed–when a bus is involved in a collision. This can make it more complicated for individual victims to seek compensation, especially when they do not have the services of a skilled bus accident attorney.
