Potential Bus Accident Injuries

Without a doubt, bus accidents and truck accidents can result dangerous injuries. These injuries can include the following:

  • Head injuries and brain injuries
  • Neck and back injuries
  • Spinal cord injuries
  • Shoulder injuries
  • Hip injuries
  • Knee injuries
  • Crushing injuries
  • Severed limbs
  • Fractures
  • Nerve, ligament, and muscle damage
  • Lacerations
  • Scrapes and bruises

Bus crashes often lead to severe injuries for two reasons in particular – buses are not normally equipped with seatbelts, and they are often carrying many passengers (the bus involved in today’s accident had 20 occupants). When a crash occurs, these passengers are usually thrown around in the bus. Any incident involving a commercial truck is also likely to lead to dangerous injuries, just because of the size and weight of these vehicles.

Of course, these injuries can result in permanent harm. Some of these injuries can also be fatal.

Regardless of the harm that you or a loved one suffered in a bus accident, you might have grounds to file a lawsuit. The experts here at our law firm are ready to fight for your rights and help you take legal action.

Some Possible Causes of Bus Accidents

Bus accidents can occur for many reasons. Unfortunately, many of these reasons are completely preventable. Some of these causes include the following:

  • Drivers falling asleep behind the wheel, driving distracted, driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs, texting while driving, etc. (driver negligence)
  • Unskilled, untrained, unlicensed drivers; drivers with a bad record (company negligence)
  • Buses in disrepair (company negligence)
  • Dangerous road conditions, including potholes, defective traffic lights, poorly lit intersections, etc. (city agency negligence)
  • Defective buses on the road (auto manufacturer negligence)

Regardless of the specific cause of the bus accident, it is important that you seek legal assistance as soon as possible. You could have grounds to file a lawsuit.

Understanding Liability – Buses are Common Carriers

In the case of auto accidents, liability is based on the concept of negligence. Negligence consists of four elements – a duty of care, a breach of duty, cause, and harm. All drivers on the road have a duty of care towards others on the road (they must use caution and skill while driving to avoid any incidents). When drivers drive recklessly and cause an accident, then they are breaching their duty of care. When a breach of duty contributes to an accident, then the driver can be liable and can be sued.

Things with bus accidents are different. Buses are considered common carriers. Common carriers have a strict duty of care towards their passengers. They have the duty to carry their passengers safely using the highest care/vigilance to avoid any incidents. Based on these common carrier laws, bus companies are strictly liable for the harm that their passengers suffer on their buses with very few exceptions.

For more information about establishing liability after a bus accident, do not hesitate to contact the experts at our law firm as soon as possible.
