Bus personal injury accidents

The Skiver Law Firm, represents the legal rights and goals of injured victims of a bus accident or other personal injury accident or incident in Scottsdale, Phoenix, and Central Arizona.


Bus accidents can be very complex due to several factors that may have to be taken into consideration. One of these considerations is if the bus is privately or publicly owned. Handling a case involving a school bus may have to be handled in a different manner than that of a private bus charter service, or a cities public bus transportation service. When buses are publicly owned there are shorter time periods in which to make your claim, so you must act quickly to put the public entity on notice of your claim.

Certain types of bus accidents may be subject to limitations on the amount that can be sought for injury compensation and damages, while other accidents may have teams of lawyers and insurance adjusters that will aggressively seek to limit the liability of each individual bus accident and injury victim to preserve profits.

As mentioned above, bus accidents can be very complex, including who is actually at fault for the accident.

While many are quick to assume the bus driver is at fault, it may be determined that "at fault" liability may be place on various people or entities, such as:

  • The bus driver;
  • The bus company;
  • A repair or maintenance facility;
  • The bus manufacturer;
  • Drivers of other vehicles;
  • Disruptive passengers.

The Skiver Law Firm will help you seek justice against whomever is deemed to be at fault.
