What Causes a Bus Accident?
Like many other incidents on the road, bus accidents can happen for all kinds of reasons. It typically doesn’t matter if the bus was in service for school transportation, public transportation, or a private charter. These large vehicles and their occupants are vulnerable to several common causes.
In most cases, bus accidents are the result of the following factors:
- Distracted driving on the part of the bus driver and/or another motorist
- Driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol
- Driver fatigue due to long hours behind the wheel
- Mechanical errors that were neglected or ignored
- Driver error caused by an inexperienced or inattentive bus driver
If you believe any of these factors played a role in the bus accident that caused your injuries, you should consult with Metzger Wickersham for guidance on how to proceed with your claim.
Who Is Responsible for My Injuries?
Bus accidents are often complicated events, and a single factor may not be solely to blame. In fact, it’s not uncommon for a combination of factors to contribute to a bus accident.
This means that more than one individual or entity may be responsible for your injuries. Such parties can include the driver, charter company, relevant government entity or school district, companies responsible for maintenance, and others like these.
You should consult with a bus accident attorney in Pennsylvania for help with investigating the accident and identifying all potentially liable parties.
