Why Do I Need An Attorney To Represent Me In A Bus Accident?
Bus accidents can involve those used for public transportation, buses run
by private companies for long distance travel, tour buses, and even school
buses. Bus accidents can be caused by a number of factors including driver
error or fatigue, operating under the influence of alcohol or substance
abuse, poor road conditions and maintenance issues. Sadly, most of the
time, an accident could have prevented if the driver wasn't careless.
Bus accidents can be caused by factors including:
- Improper Maintenance
- Driver Error or Negligence
- Drunk Driving
- Rider Distractions
- Flammable Seat Cushions
- Faulty Emergency Exits
- Dangerous Roadways
- Weather Conditions
- Defective Products
- Tire Blow-outs
When a public transportation accident occurs, it is almost never the victim's
fault. It could be the driver's fault; perhaps they were speeding,
driving while intoxicated, or were distracted. It could be the other driver's
fault as well. Additionally, most buses in Louisiana are not equipped
and prepared for such accidents and do not have seatbelts. It is one thing
when an individual chooses not to wear their seatbelt, but it is something
else when they did not even have the choice to begin with. Our lawyers
can help you receive the compensation you deserve.
