Las Vegas, like most metropolitan areas, has an extensive bus system designed to transport Las Vegas residents and visitors to areas throughout the Las Vegas metropolitan area. However, Las Vegas, unlike most large cities, is primarily a resort destination with significant bus tour activities. Over 35,000,000 people visit Las Vegas each year and a significant portion of that number take bus tours. Whether you are a Las Vegas resident or visiting Las Vegas, being injured on a bus can be a traumatic experience. The bus accident attorneys at Day & Nance want to make sure that you understand your rights and legal options when you have been injured in a bus accident.
Bus accident law falls under the common carrier law because buses offer transportation services to residents and visitors as part of their business. A common carrier is an individual or business whose transports people, goods or services for a fee. Common carrier laws are regulated on a local, state and federal level. The federal government gets involved when the transportation of individuals, goods or services takes place across state lines.
If a bus accident is due to the negligence of the driver, whether that driver was fatigued, speeding, or failed to properly maintain the bus, the bus company is liable for personal injury or wrongful death under general tort law for negligence. The injured party or parties must show that the bus company negligently operated or maintained its bus that this negligence proximately caused the resulting bus accident and injuries.
