Common Causes of Bus Crashes
Driving collisions or accidents involving a bus are less common than standard motor vehicle accidents but they still can occur and injure passengers, other drivers, or pedestrians.
Crashes may be caused by several factors:
- Inexperienced bus driver. Lack of proper training in handling a passenger vehicle may lead to unnecessary auto accident and injury.
- Low visibility. Because of the blind spots a bus has, plus the bulky design, bus drivers may fail to see another vehicle on the road or pedestrians crossing.
- Maintenance. Failure to properly maintain a passenger vehicle may lead to mechanical failures that result in a bus injury.
- Dangerous roads/weather conditions.
- Excessive speed.
Protect Yourself in a Bus Accident
As a passenger, if you are involved in a bus accident it is important to follow these steps to protect your rights:
- File a report with local law enforcement
- Obtain detailed accounts of the incident from other passengers involved in the crash as well as any witnesses.
- Document the damages to the bus and other vehicles or property.
