Our Bus Accident Attorneys Help People Rebuild After Serious Crashes
Buses can offer a false sense of security to their occupants. Since they’re large, people assume they’re safe.

Since buses are significantly heavier and larger than other vehicles on the road, people involved with collisions involving them often suffer from serious injuries.

What Causes Shreveport Bus Accidents
Multiple factors and events can trigger a serious bus accident. However, all bus crashes have one thing in common: they’re preventable. When buses are operated safely, they’re a useful source of mass transportation. Yet, reckless bus driving and operations mean that dozens of people can have their lives changed by a single accident.
Common causes or factors that lead to bus accidents include:
- 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
Determining fault after a bus accident can involve multiple layers. Sometimes, drivers can cause accidents through reckless driving. In other instances, transportation companies cause accidents by failing to train workers or make sure their fleet is properly maintained. Finally, manufacturers might be responsible for bus accidents after producing faulty or low quality parts.
Hiring an experienced bus accident lawyer can help you determine what parties could have prevented your accident.
Why Bus Accidents Are Serious
The size of a bus is usually only rivaled by semi-trucks. They weigh thousands of pounds, can carry dozens of people, and share the road with vehicles that are significantly smaller than them. These factors combine during an accident to devastating results.
Though required by law, bus passengers have a false sense of safety that lures them into not using safety restraints. Additionally, buses often have a weak roof and large windows—two characteristics that make the force of an accident even more dangerous for unrestrained passengers.
Bus accident injuries can include the following:
- Burn injuries
- Orthopedic injuries
- Post-traumatic stress disorder
- Neurological injuries
- Neck and back injuries
- Spinal cord injuries
- Blunt force trauma
These injuries often require extensive medical treatment, time off from work, and are painful for those who have them. Bus accident survivors deserve compensation to help them recover from the difficulties associated with their injuries. At Arnold & Itkin LLP, we’re ready to be the team that can fight for your recovery.
