Who Is Responsible in a Chauffeured Vehicle Crash in Washington?

Unfortunately, when a town car, limo bus, or other chartered vehicle is involved in a traffic collision, there are often multiple passengers that have been injured or worse. It is important to have as much evidence as possible to help you determine who is responsible for the crash and who should be liable for the damages you have sustained. However, you do not have to face this overwhelming situation alone. An experienced Washington injury lawyer can work on your behalf from start to finish, ensuring that you have as much time as possible to focus on your recovery.

The Chauffeur – Chauffeurs, such as limo or town car drivers, are required to follow strict safety regulations to ensure passenger safety. When a driver fails to follow these regulations, whether due to recklessness or willful wrongdoing, s/he can be held responsible. Typical types of driver negligence include:

The Chauffeured Service Company – Party bus companies, limo companies, and other rental vehicle companies may bear some responsibility in the event that one of their vehicles is involved in a crash. Depending on management and their level of adherence to state and federal safety laws, the chauffeured service company may put passengers at risk for the following:

  • Poor vehicle maintenance and upkeep
  • Overbooking more passengers than should be allowed on a vehicle
  • Pressuring drivers to work longer shifts or ignore safety regulations
  • Failing to train chauffeurs and their managers

Other Motorists – It is not uncommon for chauffeured vehicles to become involved in a crash due to another motorist's negligence on the road. Speeding or swerving around a limo or party bus can interfere with chauffeur's ability to safely operate the vehicle. If another motorist is at-fault, s/he can be held accountable through a personal injury claim.
