Buses are a crucial facet of everyday transportation. Students are transported by buses each morning and afternoon to get to and from school, and many pedestrians take the Metro and other bus lines to get around. Although they aren’t as common, bus accidents do happen. The sheer size and momentum of these buses can cause catastrophe if not handled properly. If you or a loved one were injured in a bus accident due to the negligence or inattention of a third party, you may be entitled to compensation.
Some common causes of bus accidents include:
- The bus driver’s lack of sleep
- Traffic error caused by the bus driver (e.g. running a stop sign)
- Getting distracted while driving
- Driving under the influence (DUI)
- Inaccurate maintenance checks
It is vital to hire a bus accident lawyer to ensure you receive the justice you deserve. Insurance representatives and adjusters are not looking out for your best interest; do not agree to a settlement without consulting an expert first, even if it seems generous.
Whether you were affected by the accident as a pedestrian walking on the street, passenger on the bus, or a driver on the road, we are here to help.
