Who Is Responsible When A Van or Bus Accident Occurs?

Who is at fault for a large passenger van, bus, mini-bus or casino bus or van accident in California?  While it is often the driver of such vans or mini-buses taking sports teams to sporting events or gamblers to Indian casinos, sometimes the cause of the accident or the additional injuries caused when such vans and busses rollover is a defect in the design and manufacture of these vehicles.

When large 12 and 15 passenger vans are loaded with passengers and sporting gear or luggage, a van this large can have a higher center of gravity and be more prone to rolling over.  Rather than face the high cost of buying newer or safer vans or larger vehicles, many such vans are still in use to transport sporting teams and gamblers to their destinations.

The statute of limitations, which is the date by which you must file a lawsuit in the appropriate court for your injuries resulting from an accident in California, a dog bite or for a wrongful death is two years. If the injured party was a minor at the time of the accident, you have a longer period of time to file suit, namely up until one year after the minor turns 18.

There are other exceptions to the statute of limitations and there are different statutes of limitations for each area of law, such as breach of contract actions, etc.  One of the most important exceptions is that for claims against any type of public entity such as a school, city or city bus line, a claim must be filed with the city within 6 months of the accident.

There can also be negligence on the personnel who load these vans and buses with too much equipment or with more passengers than they are built to carry.
