Bus Crashes are Terrifying Experiences
OUR LEGAL TEAM OFFERS FREE, NO-OBLIGATION CONSULTATIONS
If you’ve ever had the misfortune of being involved in a bus accident, then you know just how frightening they can be. Even supposedly minor bus accidents can have devastating consequences for occupants.
Either the driver of the bus or another vehicle can be at fault for a serious bus crash.
At Terry Bryant Accident & Injury Law, we know what bus accident victims face in the wake of a crash, and we believe that those responsible for a crash should be held accountable for the damages facing their victims.
One single bus accident can have several different causes, though there is typically one identifiable primary contributing factor that leads to a crash. Driver error is commonly the primary cause of these types of accidents.
DRIVER FATIGUE, DISTRACTION OR IMPAIRMENT
AGGRESSIVE / RECKLESS DRIVING
SPEEDING OR FAILURE TO DRIVE ACCORDING TO ROAD CONDITIONS
If you’ve been hurt in an accident, it’s not up to you to determine who was responsible. At Terry Bryant Accident & Injury Law, we investigate the circumstances surrounding the crash to find out who was at fault.
TERRY BRYANT ACCIDENT & INJURY LAW
The individual circumstances of each accident influences the direction and compensation of the lawsuit. The types of vehicles involved and the severity of injuries are critical factors.
Common Injuries in Bus Crashes: A serious bus accident can result in almost any injury imaginable. Some of the most serious injuries our clients have experienced include...
- Head, neck, and brain injuries
- Back and spinal injuries
- Complex fractures, such as broken hips, knees, ankles, or wrists
- Internal injuries and organ damage
- Whiplash and severe soft tissue injuries
- Wrongful death.
Because the interior of a bus is more spacious, and passengers aren’t always wearing restraints, a bus accident carries the potential to cause significant harm to everyone on board.
Types of Vehicles Involved in Bus Accident Cases: By definition, a bus is a vehicle that can carry several passengers. In some cases, a vehicle that resembles a van can be referred to as a bus. Vehicles that might be considered buses include: School buses, Charter buses, Public Transport buses, Airport buses, Coach buses, Minibuses, Sleeper buses, and Double-decker buses.
OUR EXPERIENCE @ WORK FOR YOU
Cases Involving Bus Accidents Are Unique
Buses are commercial vehicles, which means that the bus and the driver must follow more stringent guidelines than the rest of us. There are both federal and state laws that govern commercial vehicle use, and understanding these laws is a key part of handling a personal injury claim from a bus accident.Buses are also typically owned by companies or local governments, which means that filing an injury claim after a bus accident can be more challenging than filing a claim against the driver of a passenger car.
The companies that own these buses are often more prepared for litigation, so it’s in a victim’s best interest to find an attorney with a great deal of experience and a track record of success in bus accident cases.
The bus accident attorneys at Terry Bryant Accident & Injury Law have years of experience helping clients in commercial vehicle crash cases. Terry Bryant is a Board Certified personal injury trial lawyer and a former judge in Texas. His handpicked team has a deep understanding of the complexities of bus accident cases.
