Bus Accidents

Buses are one of the most common forms of public transportation offered by cities across the world. Because of their popularity, an occasional accident involving a bus is inevitable. Suffering an injury as a result of a bus accident may mean that you are entitled to compensation. However, the course of action needed in order to recover that compensation differs from the typical vehicle injury claims. If you or a family member have suffered an injury caused by a bus accident, our attorneys can help you take the right steps to ensure that you receive the compensation you deserve.

What are the common causes of bus accidents?

Bus accidents can be caused by numerous factors, the most common of which are:

  • The actions of another vehicle
  • Mechanical failures or defective equipment on the bus
  • Poor road conditions
  • Bus driver's inexperience
  • Bus driver driving distracted
  • Bus driver being under the influence of alcohol or other drugs
  • Bus driver breaking traffic laws such as speeding

While not all of the above causes are guaranteed to result in the injured party receiving compensation, it can be difficult to tell unless you speak to an attorney. If you or someone you love has suffered because of a bus accident, contact us to find out if you may be eligible to receive compensation.

What are the common injuries that occur as a result of a bus accident?

Bus accidents are dangerous for anyone involved in the accident, including the bus driver, bus passengers, passengers in other cars, and pedestrians on the road. Buses are not fully equipped with safety functions, such as airbags and seat belts, that are common in passenger vehicles. Because of this, passengers are often thrown from their seats during an accident, which can result in a serious injury.

Due to the nature of bus accidents, injuries sustained as a result can be serious and even fatal. Some common forms of injury include:

  • Brain trauma
  • Spinal cord injuries
  • Paralysis
  • Broken bones
  • Death
