In most cases, a state is immune from being sued by one of its citizens. However, in some circumstances states will create exemptions from this immunity, particularly for automobile accidents involving a government vehicle such as a bus.
These exemptions are common in situations involving government vehicles, but a case against a government agency must be much stronger than a case against another citizen. To complicate matters further, there may be more than one set of laws involved. It depends on where the accident happened, whether another vehicle was involved, who owns the bus or transportation company, and a whole host of other factors.
The government may have “immunity” but that doesn’t mean that they cannot be held accountable for their actions. For more information on government immunity and bus accident laws, or to find a bus accident lawyer in Las Vegas, contact Simon Law Group at (702) 364-1650.
