Bus accident claims may be complex, involving commercial entities or even vehicle manufacturers. You need an attorney who can handle these issues and more.

Bus Accident Fatalities
According to the Center for National Truck and Bus Statistics, an average of 300 buses are involved in fatal traffic accidents each year.
- More than 90% of bus crashes occur under normal weather conditions.
- More than 70% occur during daylight hours.
- Nearly 80% of buses are on local trips within 50 miles of a home location when accidents occur.
- Fatal accidents are more likely to involve buses owned and operated by school districts.
- The majority of victims in fatal accidents are non-bus passenger motorists who are involved in the impact with the bus.
Common issues that cause fatal bus crashes include failing to yield to oncoming traffic, careless driving, distracted driving, and failure to stay in the proper lane. These lapses in judgment can cost lives and change families forever.
Negligent Manufacturing and Maintenance Claims
Though bus accidents can be caused by driver error, they can also be a result of a faulty part. Buses travel many miles each day, meaning they face constant wear and tear. If a part is poorly made or not replaced in time, a bus driver may lose control of their vehicle.
Parts that can dangerously malfunction include
- Electrical Components
If a defect is to blame for an accident, our attorneys can investigate to determine who is liable. Blame could rest with the bus maker that used a poor vehicle design; an auto parts manufacturer that did not use quality materials; or the owner or maintenance company in charge of keeping the bus roadworthy. Our in-house engineering team is well-equipped to identify faulty parts and demonstrate how they may have contributed to your injury.
