Public Transit Accidents
Riding the bus is an energy conscious and cost efficient choice for commuting, but it also takes the responsibility for your safety on the road out of your hands and places it in the hands of the driver of the bus. Traffic accidents happen all the time, and buses are certainly not immune. Unfortunately, injuries in a bus accident can sometimes be very serious due to the lack of safety features such as seat belts and air bags available to protect the passengers.
If you have suffered an injury while using public transit, you may be entitled to compensation for your medical expenses and any other losses associated with the incident. To learn more about your legal options, contact the experienced Green Bay bus accident attorneys of Habush Habush & Rottier, S.C., at 800-242-2874.
Causes of Accidents
Bus accidents occur for most of the same reasons that smaller vehicles become involved in accidents, although the consequences of a bus accident are more likely to be severe. The following are representative causes of bus accidents:
- Bus driver error
- Parts defects and malfunctions
- Road defects
- Reckless driving by other motorists
- Negligent hiring of bus drivers
No matter the cause of the accident, the passengers in a bus are never at fault for their injuries and will be in a strong position when attempting to recover compensation.
