Common Causes of Bus Accidents

Once you begin to work with a personal injury attorney, the first thing they will do is determine the cause of the accident. Some of the most common causes include:

Reckless Driving: Bus drivers must drive with extreme caution to protect everyone on board, but unfortunately, many drivers do not. Reckless driving, such as speeding, not paying attention to traffic signals, or cutting off other vehicles, often leads to accidents.

Distracted or Intoxicated Driving: No bus driver should ever get behind the wheel while intoxicated or distracted by a cell phone or other device. Intoxicated and distracted driving are both extremely dangerous and can increase the likelihood of a collision.

Fatigue: There are regulations in place that prevent bus companies from overscheduling bus drivers, however many companies fail to adhere to these regulations. As a result, drivers are often fatigued and unable to pay attention to the road.

Condition of the Bus: Bus companies must keep detailed maintenance logs to prove that they regularly inspect and repair their buses. However, some companies choose to skip these inspections or put them off. This is a risky decision that often leads to accidents caused by poorly maintained buses.
