TYPES OF INJURY CASES WE HANDLE
BUS ACCIDENT LAWYERS
Since the advent of public transportation, many people opt to ride the various buses the city and state operate. Public transit offers many benefits over conventional automobiles such as saving time and money on gas. However, buses are not immune to the dangers and risks of traffic collisions, or accidents. Because a large number of people can occupy a bus at a given time, there are typically many people injured in each accident. If you have been injured in a bus accident, contact the experienced Alabama bus accident lawyers here at the law office of Wettermark & Keith, today. With over 30 years of combined litigation experience, our top injury lawyers have the resources and skills needed to build you an effective case.
Information gathered by the FMCSA (Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration) in 2017 there were around 15,000 reported cases of bus wrecks causing injury. This led to 25,000 reported injuries amongst passengers and other vehicles involved in the accident. The data classifies the following vehicles as buses:
- Public Transportation Buses
- School Buses
- Casino Buses
- Shuttle Buses
- Commuter Buses
It should be noted that people don’t necessarily have to be riding on the bus in question in order to sustain an injury. Many people, including pedestrians, are struck by buses while waiting at designated bus stops. In other situations, bus driver inattention causes them to strike other vehicles on the road. When this occurs, serious injury can take place to the occupants of both the bus and the smaller passenger car. Contact our law office today if you have been injured in a bus accident, you may be entitled to substantial financial compensation.
Accident Causation and Injuries
Negligent actions taken by bus operators have the potential to cause severe personal injury or even the wrongful death of bus passengers, pedestrians, or other motorists on the road. With the lives of everyone on the bus in the hands of the driver, responsible and safe driving is key. Unfortunately, not all bus drivers adhere to the codes set in place by the companies who employ them. Examples of negligent driving that contribute to bus accidents are:
- Operator Inattention
- Excessive Speed
- Ignoring Posted Signage
- Driver Distraction
- Driving Intoxicated
