Am I able to make a claim for damages if the bus accident was not my fault or only partially my fault?
If you were not at fault for the accident or only partially at fault, you may be able to file a tort claim for damages. Transit riders injured in bus accidents that do not involve a collision are no longer eligible for SABS and must file a tort claim for compensation. Anyone else involved in a bus accident may make a claim for compensation to supplement SABS. While there is a general deadline to file a claim within two years of the accident (or within two years of being reasonably aware of your injury), notice of claims against a municipality or Ontario’s Ministry of Transportation must be submitted in writing to the appropriate office within just 10 days of the accident, unless a person’s injury reasonably prevents them from being able to file within that period or another factor alters the timelines established by the law (for example, passengers under the age of 18).
