Marie Helene Tchir was thrown out of her seat after the bus she was riding came to a sudden halt.

And  as a result Tchir suffered serious injury to her right shoulder and knee.

The driver of the North Vancouver bus on which she was a passenger claimed that he was trying to avoid an "erratic driver" who stopped suddenly in front of the bus.

The "erratic driver" was never found.

Marie Tchir's case shows how the question of who's responsibile for injuries in a bus accident case can be a complicated question.

Think of it this way.

Can a person who has been injured in a bus accident PROVE that another party was LEGALLY RESPONSIBLE for their injuries.

Is there sufficient proof that the bus driver behaved in a negligent fashion?

It's not enough to say that just because the bus driver hit his brakes he was NEGLIGENT.

Can you prove that there actual was ANOTHER VEHICLE INVOLVED.

Can you prove that the OTHER VEHICLE was involved and that the DRIVER OF THE OTHER VEHICLE was negligent.

Have you taken all reasonable steps to identify the vehicle and the driver of the OTHER VEHICLE

Hey, bus accident cases are complicated cases.

Interested in discussing your bus accident case?
