Proving Liability in a Bus Accident Case in California

To initiate the process of filing a claim and seeking compensation for damages, your legal representative must pinpoint the responsible party or parties. In the context of a bus accident, the list of potential defendants can be vast. However, once one of our knowledgeable lawyers identifies the liable party in your case, the next crucial step for your case is to actually present evidence of their liability. To determine liability in a bus accident case, your attorney will gather and meticulously review all pertinent information that could serve as proof of negligence. 

This collected evidence is instrumental in building a strong Los Angeles bus accident claim. To prove liability, your lawyer must present evidence of the four elements of negligence in your case. These elements are as follows:

  • The negligent party owed you a duty of care
  • The negligent party breached the duty of care owed to you
  • The breach of duty led to the bus accident and your subsequent injuries
  • You suffered losses as a result

Proving liability is a highly important step in any personal injury case. To ensure the strength of your Los Angeles bus accident claim, our team of skilled lawyers are here to help.
