Bus Accidents

Riding the bus is a great form of inexpensive, eco-friendly transportation. For those who choose this method of travel, it is important to know of the risks involved. Buses require specially trained drivers in order to operate safely and, if an accident occurs because of a driving error, the repercussions can be devastating. In addition to driver training, buses require routine, proper maintenance in order to avoid malfunctions and operate in a safe manner. The owners of these vehicles are responsible for providing their passengers a safe riding experience and, if the bus is not in the best condition possible, it may pose a serious safety threat to the riders.

Driver fatigue is another cause of bus accidents. If drivers have been working long shifts or driving overnight, drowsiness can occur and can have detrimental results to the driver, passengers or other innocent drivers on the road. If you or someone you love has been involved in a bus accident, contact the Phoenix personal injury lawyers of Haralson, Miller, Pitt, Feldman & McAnally, P.L.C., at 800-763-0964 to discuss your legal options.
