Passenger Bus Accidents
If you are a bus passenger, passenger car occupant, or a pedestrian, and you have been injured in a bus accident, you may be able to obtain financial compensation. A public bus is considered a "common carrier," meaning it is regularly involved in the transportation of people or goods. Common carriers have a professional and legal responsibility to ensure the safety of their occupants as well as other road users and pedestrians. If a bus driver fails to employ the utmost care in the operation of his or her vehicle and causes an injury, then the driver can be held liable.
Among the more common causes of bus accidents include driver fatigue, inadequate training, driver distraction and driving at an unsafe speed for the conditions. Any such actions by a bus driver could potentially be considered acts of negligence. A New York, New Jersey, and Pennsylvania-based bus accident lawyer from the Locks Law Firm has the experience and knowledge needed to resolve your case successfully.
