Bus Accidents

When we step onto public transportation, such as a city bus, we expect to be safe. Although all types of auto accidents can have devastating consequences, bus accidents have the potential to cause more severe injuries and costly damages. Proving liability in a bus accident case is also more complex than a typical car wreck, and requires the expertise of knowledgeable bus accident lawyers. Our team of personal injury lawyers can help.

Common Causes of Bus Accidents

There are many different kinds of buses throughout the nation. The Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standards defines a bus as any motorized vehicle that can carry more than ten passengers. These can include:

  • City buses operating with an urban area
  • Greyhound buses, transporting passengers from city to city
  • Tour buses and coaches used to carry tourists
  • School and college buses
  • Other buses and vans used for church groups, clubs and workers

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) reports that nearly 300 fatal bus accidents happen every year. Some common causes of the tragic wrecks include:

  • Reckless bus drivers
  • Intoxicated bus drivers
  • Distracted bus drivers
  • Improper bus maintenance
  • Road maintenance issues
  • Inclement weather

Determining Liability in a Bus Accident Case

Lawsuits involving bus accidents are extremely complex because they involve the potential liability of a number of parties, such as:

  • The bus driver
  • The bus management company
  • Manufacturers of bus equipment
  • Additional negligent drivers involved in the crash
  • Government agencies responsible for public buses

Reasons for bus accidents vary greatly and our bus accident lawyers can conduct a thorough investigation into your case to help determine who is responsible for your injuries.
