Limited Tort and Bus Accidents

Forget Limited Tort Rules. The Bus Company Can Owe You Full Compensation for Your Pennsylvania Injury Claim
Limited tort rules complicate nearly every traffic accident injury claim in Pennsylvania. You’ll find lots of lawyers who will refuse to take your case just because of the restrictions from the limited tort law.

We want to tell you a secret: limited tort rules may not apply to your case at all. There are holes in the limited tort law, and we know all the exceptions. Here’s how you can be eligible for full compensation:

  • If you are riding in something other than a private passenger vehicle—for instance, if you are a bus passenger—and you get hurt due to the negligence of another driver, then limited tort rules don’t apply. You can demand 100% recovery from the other driver or his insurance company.
  • If your injuries are especially serious, then limited tort rules don’t apply. You can sue for 100% recovery, including pain and suffering.
  • If the driver at fault was convicted of being under the influence of alcohol or illegal drugs, then limited tort rules don’t apply. This holds true even when the bus driver makes an error because he was intoxicated.
  • If the driver responsible for the accident was driving a vehicle registered in another state, then limited tort rules don’t apply. This includes buses registered outside Pennsylvania.

Learn about your legal rights after a Pennsylvania bus accident

It’s shocking how common commercial bus accidents in Pennsylvania are. While numbers vary considerably, a typical year will see more than 700 accidents involving mass transit buses, commercial carrier buses between cities or across state lines, chartered motorcoaches, and tour buses. These accidents can involve the full spectrum of injuries, including:

  • Fractures and broken bones
  • Burns
  • Amputation
  • Neck and spine injuries, including paralysis
  • Muscle and tendon damage; sprains
  • Abrasions and degloving injuries
  • Internal injuries and soft tissue damage
  • Brain injuries and coma
  • Wrongful death

Dealing with a bus company is very different from dealing with the aftermath of a passenger car collision. The big bus companies—BoltBus, Greyhound, Megabus, Trailways, and others—have enormous resources ready to defend against any claim against them. If you have been injured in a commercial bus accident, it’s vital that you retain an experienced bus accident lawyer in Pennsylvania to aggressively seek full and fair compensation on your behalf.
