The Bus Accident Lawyers at Cordisco & Saile LLC Identify and Hold Liable All Responsible Parties
Several factors make bus accidents more complex than regular car accidents. For one, the injuries are often more extensive, and, in many cases, the number of injured people is greater. There could also be several potentially responsible parties.
Our team investigates your accident, identifying all responsible parties and collecting evidence against them. Those who may be partly or fully responsible for your injuries include:
- The bus driver;
- Another driver in the crash;
- The bus company;
- The bus manufacturer; and/or
- The government entity in charge of road and traffic signal maintenance
We have extensive resources to investigate your accident and figure out exactly where the liability falls. To find out more, and to receive a free case evaluation, call Cordisco & Saile LLC at 215-642-2335.
Do Not Speak With the Insurance Company Before Speaking With Us
Once we have identified all responsible parties, the next step is to approach them and their insurers and negotiate for damages. More often than not, the insurance company is the one doling out the money.
If you have never negotiated with an insurance company for a settlement, understand it is not an easy process. They have highly-paid negotiators whose job is to minimize what they pay out. However, our Doylestown bus accident lawyers know how to maintain the upper hand when dealing with insurers. We can keep you from getting saddled with a sub-par settlement.

The Cordisco & Saile LLC Team Can Help You No Matter How Your Bus Accident Occurred
No matter how your accident occurred, our attorneys are eager to hear from you and figure out how we can help. We can file a claim against the responsible party on one or more of the following grounds:
Many bus accidents occur due to negligence on one or more parties' behalf. To prove negligence, we must demonstrate three things:
- The responsible party owed you a duty of care;
- The responsible party did not uphold their duty of care; and
- Because of this failure, you incurred economic or non-economic damages.
All drivers, both commercial and private, have a duty of care to other motorists and pedestrians. This duty is implied when you receive a driver's license. We can show the responsible party violated their duty by offering evidence of any of the following:
- Violation of a traffic law;
- Drunk driving;
- Distracted driving; or
- Driving too many hours without rest.
Having shown the responsible party did not uphold their duty of care, we can present evidence to connect this failure to the accident itself, and the accident to the damages you incurred.
Product liability refers to the responsibility of a manufacturer when one of its products injures a consumer. To hold a manufacturer liable for injury damages, we do not have to show negligence, but we must demonstrate how its product had a flaw or defect that caused or contributed to your injury.
Manufacturers that may be responsible for your bus accident injuries include:
- The manufacturer of the bus itself;
- The manufacturer of one of the bus's components; and/or
- The manufacturer of another vehicle involved in the crash.
If your loved one died as a result of injuries suffered in a bus accident, we can pursue a wrongful death claim against the responsible party or parties.
