Bus Accidents

Due to drastically increasing roadway congestion, as well as rising gas prices, commuters are turning to rapid transit and public transportation in greater and greater numbers each year. Both commuters and college students are turning to Park and Ride options to reach their destinations, and buses are becoming more and more appealing to those who have grown sick of dense traffic. However, an unfortunate side effect of this increasing use of public transportation is an increase in the number of injuries and deaths that result from bus accidents.

Unfortunately, many bus accidents result in serious injuries or even death for those involved. These accidents have many causes, ranging from driver negligence, insufficient security, dangerous road conditions, inclement weather, negligence, defective equipment, improper maintenance, and more.

If you were a bus passenger, pedestrian, or the driver/passenger of another vehicle and were involved in a bus accident, you may be able to file a personal injury claim against the bus company and be compensated for the injuries you sustained in the accident.
