Bus Accident Causes
Buses are not equipped with the same safety features as passenger vehicles and are much larger than the average passenger vehicle. For these reasons, when a bus accident occurs, it can result in serious injuries to passengers, the bus driver, and others on the road. These common bus accident causes can lead to disaster because buses transport large numbers of people at a given time.
List of Common Bus Accident Causes
Some common bus accident causes are:
- Bad road quality
- Equipment defects
- Driver inexperience or negligence (this applies to both the bus driver and drivers in other vehicles)
- Inclement weather
- Mechanical malfunctions
- Vehicle defects
Claims against Government Agencies or Public Entities
When a government or public employee or agency is negligent and causes an injury, there is a markedly different process involved as compared to a claim against an individual or private business. There is a much shorter time frame to bring a claim and a lawsuit. Therefore, there is an increased urgency to obtain legal counsel to timely submit a claim against a government agency or public entity. A more detailed explanation is available on our Government or Public Entities Claims Pages.
