Fighting For People Injured In Bus Accidents
When most of us ride a bus, we take it for granted that we will arrive safely at our destination. We trust that the driver is competent and that the bus itself is in good working order. Even the law recognizes that bus drivers have a greater duty to provide safe transportation than an ordinary driver. Unfortunately, though, that duty is not always fulfilled. According to the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration, on average, more than 12,000 injury-causing bus crashes occur every year.
When bus accidents do occur, they often involve serious injuries such as brain or spinal cord damage. Some are fatal. The traumatic physical and emotional effects of such an accident can last a lifetime.

Building a Strong Foundation for Your Case
Many contributing factors may lie at the root of a bus accident, including:
- Negligence of the bus driver
- Negligence of another driver
- Poor road design
- Mechanical failures
- Inadequate bus maintenance
- Violations of federal safety regulations
Additionally, many different parties may share responsibility for the accident. The driver may have been negligent. The public entity or private contractor that employed the driver may have been negligent in hiring him or her. The bus itself may have been impacted by a defective part or dangerous design.
We will conduct a thorough investigation to hold the responsible parties accountable. Our firm regularly enlists the guidance of trusted experts in commercial driving license regulations and federal regulations to ensure that our clients’ cases rest on the firmest possible footing.
