Common carriers owe passengers a high level of care

Buses are considered common carriers, which means that they are vehicles transporting goods or passengers across specific routes for compensation. As such, owners and operators have a strict duty to provide the highest level of care to their passengers by acting in a manner that protects them from harm. This includes adequate maintenance to ensure that the bus is operating in a safe manner. They are also responsible for ensuring that operators are properly trained and credentialed. Bus drivers must abide by traffic laws and use reasonable judgment when operating the vehicle. When any of these parties fail to meet their responsibilities, they may be held liable for the resulting injuries.
