Our El Paso Bus Accident Lawyers Never Back Down from a Fight 

El Paso Bus Accident Attorneys

Representing Bus Accident Survivors & Victims' Families Nationwide

When using public transit or other forms of mass transportation, we often feel safe. Buses are large and provide a sense of security, especially when they share the road with small vehicles. However, this sense of security can be false. Besides not offering the protection that other vehicles provide to occupants, buses have a characteristic that becomes tragic during an accident: they can carry dozens of people at once. While all motor vehicle accidents can be serious, incidents involving buses have the potential to change countless lives at once. Worst of all, they’re largely preventable. They should never cause anyone to suffer.

What Causes El Paso Bus Accidents?

Bus accidents are dangerous because of how many people are often inside the vehicle. However, the amount of people inside a bus doesn’t make them dangerous, a set of preventable factors do.

The following are common causes or factors that lead to dangerous bus riding conditions:

  • No safety restraints for passengers
  • Poorly trained bus drivers
  • Lack of regular bus maintenance
  • Reckless or negligent bus driving
  • Bus driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol

A lot goes into making a bus trip safe. Drivers must be rested, competent, and trained. Companies and mechanics must provide adequate maintenance. Manufacturers must ensure that they produce reliable and safe products. When any party involved with a bus’s operation fails to be safe, the results can be catastrophic for passengers and others on the road. Our El Paso personal injury attorneys work to expose wrongdoing of this kind.

Why Buses Are a Threat to Other Vehicles on the Road

Outside of semi trucks, buses are larger than nearly every other vehicle they share the road with. They’re heavy, cumbersome, and require care and attention to safely operate. One of the most dangerous aspects of buses is how hard they are to stop thanks to their heavy weight. Even worse, when buses are filled with passengers—an average of 55 at a time. Just one moment of inattention by a driver can create a dangerous situation that can kill or permanently injure dozens of passengers, not to mention other motorists, pedestrians, or cyclists.

Bus Accident Injuries

A lack of safety restraints, weak roofs, and heavy weight mean many passengers are at the mercy of physics during a bus accident. Survivors of bus accidents often have catastrophic injuries. These injuries are significant because they permanently alter a person’s ability to live as they did before an accident.

Bus accident injuries can include the following:

Many of these injuries require extensive and costly medical care. They alter a person’s future stability thanks to debt, the loss of the ability to work, and the emotional consequences that remain long after injuries have healed. This isn’t right, and bus accident survivors and their families deserve answers from negligent parties.

Bus Accident FAQ

What Can I Recover After an El Paso Bus Accident?

This depends on the specifics of your crash. Often, those injured in bus accident can seek compensation for lost wages, medical bills, and any other costs associated with their accident. If you’ve lost a loved one because of an accident, you might be able to recover losses related to their medical bills, funeral expenses, loss of income, and more in a wrongful death case. The best way to find out what’s possible for you is to call our El Paso bus accident law firm for a free consultation.

Who Is Responsible for Bus Accidents?

Bus accident liability can be complicated because multiple parties may be responsible for a single collision. Operators, bus drivers, manufacturers, and other parties might be completely or partially responsible for an accident. This makes it important to hire a law firm that will examine all aspects of a case so accountability is properly distributed for your recovery.
