California Common Carrier Laws

In California, several vehicles fall under the category of “common carrier.” A common carrier is any company that was created to transport people or property from one location to another at a fee. Buses are one type of common carrier among many others, including trains, taxis, planes, and cruise ships. Common carriers are held to a higher standard of care than other motor vehicles. This makes it easier for passengers and other individuals who are injured in a bus accident to establish negligence and hold the appropriate parties liable.

Under California Civil Code Section 2100, buses as common carriers must use the utmost care and diligence to ensure safe transport of their passengers and cargo. This includes making sure that bus drivers are properly trained and not overworked, as well as maintaining vehicles with regular inspections and repairs.

According to these statutes, bus companies are required to:

  • Give their passengers a reasonable amount of attention

  • Refrain from driving erratically or making sudden stops

  • Protect their passengers from harm

  • Screen and properly train their employees

  • Warn their passengers of any known dangers

  • Treat their passengers with civility

  • Provide a vehicle that is safe and capable of fulfilling its duties

  • Give their passengers proper accommodation

Proving Negligence in a Bus Accident Claim

In order to win a bus accident claim, you will need to prove that negligence occurred. There are several potential parties whose negligence could have led to your damages, including the bus driver, bus company, bus owner, bus maintenance company, bus manufacturer, and the government.

To prove negligence, you must show:

  • The responsible party owed you a duty of care
  • The responsible party breached that duty of care
  • The breach of that duty of care was the proximate cause of your injuries
  • You suffered losses due to the responsible party’s negligence
