Wrongful Death Bus Accident Claims: What You Need to Know
Both state and federal laws strictly regulate the responsibilities of common carriers and assign appropriate liability when passengers are injured. California bus drivers, for example, are required to exercise the highest degree of care when transporting adults and children across the state — or even from one part of Los Angeles to another.
Unfortunately, negligence-related bus accidents still happen on a regular basis. They may involve a number of factors, including:
- Distracted or fatigued bus drivers
- Insufficiently trained bus drivers
- Inadequate security aboard the bus
- Improper vehicle maintenance
- Outdated equipment or vehicles
The likelihood of suffering bus accident injuries is compounded by the frequent lack of seat belts and the fact that passengers are free to move around at will.
