Our Alexandria Bus Accident Lawyers Have Recovered Billions Because They Never Back Down from a Fight

According to the U.S. Department of Transportation, over 35,000 people were injured in a bus accident in 2016, around 300 of which were fatal. Bus accidents can result in life-changing injuries because buses often lack the safety equipment almost any other vehicle is required to have. With many older buses still in operation, there is little guarantee of safety for passengers on commuter or charter buses, even as the driver is often in a seatbelt.

The Dangers of Bus Accidents & Public Transportation

It is common for passengers, pedestrians, or other drivers to sustain severe injuries in a bus accident. In many cases, bus companies could have prevented injury if they implemented adequate safety procedures to protect passengers. However, many bus companies are operating without the proper safety measures in place.

Common causes of bus accidents include:

  • Inadequately-trained drivers
  • Bus drivers under the influence
  • Improperly maintained buses
  • Negligent bus drivers
  • Lack of safety restraints

Maintenance is one of the most common issues that contribute to bus accidents. Companies fail to perform the maintenance needed on buses to reduce costs. Mechanics are often pressured to repair buses quickly to get the bus back on the road, so companies fail to give mechanics the necessary time and space to fix major safety problems.

How Common Are Bus Accidents in Louisiana?

Over 900 bus accidents were reported in Louisiana in 2018 according to the Louisiana Crash Data Report. Out of the 900 crashes, 486 of them were school bus accidents. Companies have the responsibility to keep passengers safe, especially children, but more than 50% of the bus accidents reported were school bus accidents, and nearly 1 in 3 bus accidents are fatal. When children's lives are at stake, holding bus operators accountable is the most important thing crash survivors can do.

If you or your loved one sustained injuries in a bus accident, you have the right to seek compensation. Not only will it help you secure your future, but it can obligate companies to change their policies and implement safety equipment to buses so it doesn’t happen again. The more lawsuits a bus company faces, the safer our children (and other motorists) will be.

Alexandria Bus Accident (2018)

A 69-year-old man died after a small Alexandria Community Schools bus collided with his Chevrolet S10 truck. The bus was driving northbound on Indiana 9 when the accident occurred. No students were aboard the bus at this time, and the bus driver was not injured.

Types of Serious Bus Accident Injuries

Unfortunately, many buses lack safety equipment needed to keep passengers safe. Although the law requires all vehicles to have seatbelts, most buses are not required to have them. This is a major reason why passengers don’t have sufficient protection and are vulnerable in the event of an accident.

Bus accidents often result in catastrophic injuries like:
