Frequent Causes Of Bus Accidents
Lack of seat belts, broad expanses of glass and other factors unique to buses can all contribute to passenger injuries when the bus is involved in a collision. Common negligence-related causes of such collisions can include:
- Poorly trained drivers
- Drivers operating on insufficient sleep
- Drivers under the influence of alcohol or drugs
- Poor vehicle design
- Insufficient vehicle maintenance
- Defective safety systems or warnings
Mr. Pintel and his associates have access to accident reconstruction experts and other professionals who are skilled in determining the exact cause of a crash. Depending on the results we uncover, we may be able to hold a number of different parties liable for the accident. Such parties may include the bus driver, the bus company, the maintenance company, the auto parts manufacturer and others.
