Bus Accidents

According to the U.S. Bureau of Transportation, an average of 54,231 annual bus accidents occurred from 2000-2006. Bus accidents can be defined either as an accident between a bus and a pedestrian or a bus and a motor vehicle; bus accidents may also occur between a bus and a non-moving object primarily endangering, injuring or mortally wounding passengers on board. If you’ve been in a bus accident, or you have lost a loved one due to the negligence of a bus driver, the bus manufacturer or common carrier company may be liable for your injuries or loss.

Busses operate under a unique set of operational guidelines. In the event of a bus accident, fault may lie with bus insurers, bus drivers, bus owners or other parties.
