Injured in a Bus Crash? Call Us 24/7 for Skilled Representation
Buses are one of the safest modes of transportation. They are, however, still prone to accidents when negligence exists. When such bus crashes occur, victims and their families deserve compensation for their losses. A personal injury claim is often the best option to get compensation for pain and suffering, medical bills, disability, lost wages, and more.
Beyond that, those directly affected often also wish for the company, corporation, or government entity at fault to take responsibility for what happened. An injury claim can be the most direct route to such accountability, as well.

What to Do After a Bus Accident
Many people do not know they have rights after being injured in a bus accident. There are strict time deadlines in Colorado to file bus accident injury claims. The longer you wait, the lower your chances of recovering compensation will be. Not only does memory fade, but you also run the risk of accidentally wrecking your case.
Bus accident victims eligible for compensation often include but are not limited to:
- Bus passengers
- Occupants of other vehicles
- School children and their parents
If your loved one was killed as a result of a bus accident, you may have the right to file a civil lawsuit on their behalf. At Klenofsky & Steward, LLC, we handle wrongful death cases with great care and sensitivity. We have helped many clients hold negligent parties accountable in the memory of their loved ones.
When Negligence Leads to a Bus Crash
Common negligent acts that cause bus accidents include:
- Distracted driving
- Drunk/impaired driving
- Lack of safety equipment on the bus
- Failure to inspect and maintain buses
- Failure to train bus drivers, mechanics, etc.
- Failure to adequately screen bus drivers for risk factors
- Failure to follow FMCSA rules and regulations
- Speeding and other reckless driving habits
Who Is Liable for a Bus Accident?
There are a number of parties that may be responsible, or liable, for a bus crash. In many cases, liability goes beyond who appears to be at fault.
If a drunk bus driver was at fault, for example, their employer may be considered legally and financially liable for the crash. This is because bus companies and school districts must do their due diligence to ensure bus drivers are fit for the job. Many employers will hire drivers without any consideration to their history of substance abuse or charges for driving under the influence (DUI).
Our Denver lawyers accept bus crash cases involving:
- Private buses
- School buses
- Charter buses
- Tour buses
- Travel buses, such as Greyhound
- City buses, including RTD bus and rail
Other parties besides the employer or bus driver may be liable. Our team also litigates cases against third-party drivers (such as of passenger cars), mechanics, and bus parts manufacturers, among others.
