How common are bus accidents?

If you or a loved one has been the victim of a bus accident and feel as if you are alone, please know that you are not. Bus accidents are common occurrences, and because of the size of the vehicles involved and the high speed they are traveling at, these accidents can have devastating consequences. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), over 300 bus accidents result in death in the United States every year. After suffering from the trauma of a bus accident, a legal professional can at least help with the legal portion of the recovery.

Why do I need legal assistance?

You are eligible for compensation.

When you have been involved in a bus accident and are suffering from injuries that may have resulted from it, you are entitled to certain damages that are financially compensated. These can cover expensive medical bills that can crippled individuals financially–those involved in the immediate recovery as well as future expenses that may be for home care, assisted living, disability, or longterm hospital stays.

Individuals who have been involved in a bus accident are also eligible for compensation for lost wages or a lost ability to work. This can be important to returning to a life you are familiar with and are comfortable in. A loss of quality of life or enjoyment of life is a major issue that entitles victims to compensation.

Bus accidents may also result in disability or disfigurement, which can entitle victims to further compensation. These serious injuries may require years of therapy, both physical and emotional and can cause major anxiety that takes years to go away.

Bus accident cases are complicated.

When a bus accident occurs, it can be the result of a variety of factors. Vehicle malfunction, driver error, and even weather can have a hand in causing a major accident. Because of this, pinning the accident onto a single party may be difficult or impossible. Rather, the cause of an accident is often the responsibility of multiple parties, each of which needs to be pursued.

The bus driver him- or herself may be liable for damages. Intoxication or fatigue may cause a driver to drive irresponsibly and violate any number of traffic laws. He or she may also err without the effects of intoxication or fatigue. If a death has occurred, a bus driver may be subject to criminal charges as well.

Bus companies may be liable for damages as well for their management of buses. The regulation of buses and bus schedules should be regulated closely for safety, and missteps by the bus company can contribute to the chances of an accident occurring. Failure to maintain their vehicles is a major reason for a bus company being liable for damages. Another is the over-scheduling of bus drivers, causing fatigue. For public buses, this may be a government entity that runs the buses.

Bus and bus parts manufacturers may be liable if a component of the vehicle itself fails, causing an accident. Faulty manufacturers can produce parts that do not work correctly and cause serious harm to passengers and others.

Your legal advisor will know the limits to the case.

For many of these bus accident and personal injury cases, there is a statute of limitations that limits the time that can pass before pressing charges. It is imperative that you contact a credentialed lawyer as soon as possible so that he or she can begin collecting and preserving evidence to maximize the chances of fair compensation.

A legal advisor will help you to navigate a difficult legal system that is multilayered and confrontational. Bus companies often have teams of lawyers on their side, particularly for personal injury cases. It is possible to take them on yourself, but a compassionate, professional lawyer with years of experience specific to the field is a much better field guide who can help you to avoid the legal traps that might prevent you from getting the full amount you are entitled to.
