Shuttle & Limo Crashes Require Unique Investigations
Operators of large passenger vehicles in California must follow specific state and federal regulations. Recent crashes involving large shuttle and passenger vans are causing Congress to consider further regulating the industry. With specific laws governing shuttle, limo and passenger vans and buses, it is important to work with a knowledgeable accident attorney who is familiar with these unique provisions.
Additional considerations in a shuttle bus or limo accident include the following:
Was the driver at fault?
It is important for your San Diego lawyer to investigate whether the driver was intoxicated, distracted, or reckless in the moments before the limo or shuttle collision.
Did the company negligently hire an incompetent driver?
Depending on the type of vehicle, the state may require a special license for the driver. If the limo or shuttle bus driver failed to comply with licensing or behind-the-wheel requirements, the driver and the company that hired the driver may be accountable for injuries sustained in a crash.
Did road construction cause the crash?
An often overlooked cause of collisions, especially crashes with large vehicles like shuttles and limos, is the road itself. Negligent construction of highways and roadways can cause serious car accidents.
