Bus companies are required to maintain a high standard of maintenance and their operators must be trained and qualified to drive the vehicle. When an accident does occur, failure to observe any of these regulations can be the cause. Speed of travel, lack of safety restraints for passengers, the effect their height has upon their center of gravity and the sheer weight of the vehicle can cause serious injuries as passengers can be thrown around the inside of the bus. Collisions with pedestrians, other vehicles, curbs and stationary objects can turn a routine trip into a tragedy. City and local government bus transportation facilities are protected by a number of complex laws which make it more difficult for an injured person to obtain compensation for injuries. A bus accident lawyer with our firm has the knowledge and extensive experience required to successfully file claims for damages on behalf of injured passengers, drivers and pedestrians.
The causes of an accident can range from operator error, to a defect in the manufacturing of the bus, or negligence on the part of another party.
