As a leading form of mass public transportation, buses are considered overwhelmingly safe and reliable. While far less bus collisions occur than personal automobile crashes, accidents do occur. Due to their large capacity and lack of safety restraints and devices, bus accidents present a heightened risk of personal injury. Buses are also more likely to tip or roll over than cars.
If you were injured in a bus accident, it is recommended that you seek legal assistance immediately. If the collision was a result of negligence by the bus driver, improper maintenance or oversight, or faulty equipment, compensation can be obtained. Laws and limitations governing claims involving bus accidents vary by region and other factors, and investigations may be necessary to determine liability. Joseph M.
