Bus Accident Types
As we’ve seen in headlines bus accidents happen over and over with many people being injured. Some companies who run commercial and charter buses in sub-standard condition run a high risk of causing a bus accident. Other times a bus will hit a car and cause multiple injuries such as a collision with C Tran and a minivan in Vancouver Washington that happened in 2015
Other types of bus accidents happen as well such as ones involving pedestrians and bus drivers. The city of Portland was shocked by the horrible Trimet accident that happened in 2010 when 5 pedestrians were killed.
Sometimes bikes are involved such as a fatal Oregon bus accident involving a bicycle and a trimet bus was reported in 2014.
Bus Accident Statute of Limitations
The statute of limitations for bus accidents in Oregon is the same as any other personal injury claim, 2 years. In Washington state you have 3 years to file a personal injury claim such as a bus accident with C Tran.
