Common Causes of Bus Accidents
Bus accidents can injure passengers on the bus, motorists in other vehicles, bicyclists, pedestrians, and more. When someone else causes your bus accident-related injuries, the law gives you the right to seek compensation for your medical bills and other losses. Our law firm can help identify the cause of your bus accident, which may include:
- Distracted driving
- Fatigued driving
- Drunk or drugged driving
- Violating traffic laws
- Unqualified bus operators
- Negligent hiring of dangerous drivers
- Poorly maintained or inspected buses
- Defective bus parts
- Dangerous roads

Often, bus drivers make errors that cause a bus to crash. When this is the case, the company that employed the bus driver may also be held strictly liable for the negligence of the employee driver.It’s important to have a law firm on your side that can identify all possible liable parties in your case.
