Because the primary goal of buses is to transport large numbers of passengers, bus drivers are usually more cautious than other drivers on the road. Even though buses are considered to be safer forms of transportation, they are not altogether accident free. Due to the tremendous size of most buses, and the large number of passengers typically on board these vehicles, accidents involving buses can cause serious injuries.
When operated improperly, buses can pose a serious risk to passengers, pedestrians, and other drivers on the road. If you or a loved one has suffered injuries because of someone else's negligence in Antelope Valley, our attorneys can help you take legal action against them.
The leading causes of bus accidents include:
When a bus driver, manufacturer, or other driver is responsible for causing an accident, they can be held liable for injuries incurred because of the accident, and will have to compensate the victim for medical expenses, lost wages, and pain and suffering.
