The primary step in winning your bus accident injury claim is to determine what it was that caused your accident and who is responsible for the damages. Among the most common factors and conditions that may cause a bus accident are:

  • Bus driver fatigue from working too many hours
  • Bus driver error, such as running red lights, failing to yield right-of-way, etc.
  • Aggressive driver behavior, such as speeding, rapid lane changing, failing to signal, etc.
  • Distracted driving
  • Driving under the influence
  • Inadequate inspection and maintenance, which leads to mechanical malfunctions

From 2003 to 2012, 174 school-age children died in school-transportation related crashes, 55 were occupants of school transportation buses and 119 were pedestrians.

Despite recent technological advancements in the field of public transportation, thousands are still injured annually in accidents involving common carriers. Common carriers are defined as entities that transport passengers and/or goods at set rates on regular routes. These entities are required by law to provide their passengers with the following:

  • Safely transporting passengers to their destinations
  • Providing a safe space for passengers to enter and exit the bus
  • Protecting passengers from harm, including harm by other passengers
  • Maintaining the safety of all active vehicles
  • Screening and properly training employees

*Common carriers that fail to provide their passengers with these conditions may be held liable for ensuing damages.

  • Damages to involved vehicles
  • Bus driver log books
  • Bus black box data
  • Driver cell phone data
  • Witness testimony
  • Other physical evidence at the scene, such as skid marks, gouge marks, and yaw marks

*Common carriers that fail to provide their passengers with these conditions may be held liable for ensuing damages.
