Bus accidents may not happen as often as car accidents, but they can be just as severe. People who are injured from bus accidents often experience back and brain injuries, fractures, muscle sprains and strains, and even death.
Reasons for Bus Crashes
While bus crashes can have many causes, the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration produced a study in 2009 that showed some of the most common reasons for accidents involving buses. Those include:
- Interference from pedestrians
- Road conditions that are poor
- Lane changes that are made suddenly
- Reckless bus drivers
- Weather conditions that are severe
- Other vehicles using bus-only lanes
Who is Responsible for Bus Accidents?
Seth Gladstein, a Louisville, KY injury attorney who focuses on personal injury cases, will get to the bottom of a bus accident. He will find who caused the wreck – the driver, another vehicle, the bus company, or even the municipality bus owners. Because of the bus accidents’ complexity, it’s not usual for several people or entities to be involved. As an example, if a bus driver is hired who has a past history of driving while intoxicated or taking drugs, a claim would need to be filed against the company who hired him.
