The statute of limitations is the legal deadline for filing a personal injury lawsuit. In Nevada, the general rule is that you have two years from the date of your accident to file a personal injury claim. There are, however, some exceptions to this rule so it is important to speak with an attorney as soon as possible after your accident.

Determining who the liable party is for a bus accident in Nevada depends on the specific circumstances surrounding the accident. In general, the party or parties that acted negligently or recklessly and caused the accident are typically held liable.

Some possible parties that may be held liable for a bus accident in Nevada include:

  • Bus company: The bus company may be held liable if they failed to properly maintain the vehicle, hire qualified drivers, or provide adequate training. The company’s insurance company will be responsible for damages in this situation.
  • Bus manufacturer: If the accident was caused by a manufacturing defect in the bus, the manufacturer of the bus may be held liable.
  • Government entity: If the accident occurred due to a roadway defect or other issue caused by a government entity, they may be held liable.
  • Other drivers: If another driver on the road caused the accident, they may be held liable for the damages.
  • The bus driver: If the bus driver was negligent or reckless in their operation of the bus, they may be held liable for the accident.
