Types of Bus Accidents
Because of the size and maneuvering nuances, many different kinds of buses may be involved in causing an accident. The most common types of buses include:
A public bus is one that is operated by the city and serves all citizens. Public buses rarely have seatbelts and often have some passengers standing up in transit. These buses also navigate small city streets, putting other vehicles, bicyclists and motorcyclists in danger. Because they’re run by the city government, public buses are often protected by strict laws and airtight insurance. Having a strong legal team on your side will help you secure compensation if you’ve been injured by a public bus.
Greyhound, and similar companies like Megabus, offer a low cost option for long distance travel. The potential for accidents may increase on these buses because of long highway travel, late nights and inclement weather. These companies have an obligation to protect their passengers, so you should be fairly compensated if you’re injured in an accident.
Statistically, school buses are the safest vehicles on the road. This is good news, since millions of children ride the school bus every day, but these buses are unfortunately not immune to accidents. There are a particular set of laws other vehicles are expected to follow around school buses to ensure safety for all. If your child has been injured in a school bus accident, our team can help you get the care and compensation your family deserves.
