Common Causes of Bus Accidents
Every area of a bus company is responsible for adhering to various safety regulations provided by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration. If a bus operator or company fails to adhere to such regulations and laws, and passengers become injured in a bus accident, that company or driver can be held responsible for the injuries or deaths of passengers.
Many bus accidents are completely preventable and occur due to the following reasons:
- Inadequate maintenance of safety equipment
- Lack of safety equipment
- Failure to follow Hours of Service rules
- Failure to adhere to regulations put in place by FMCSA
- Inexperienced bus operators
- Reckless operators
Other Cars, Pedestrians & Bicyclists Harmed in Bus Accidents
In addition to the bus passengers, passengers in other vehicles, as well as bicyclists and pedestrians, can be seriously injured in bus accidents. Because a bus is heavy and takes up a large amount of space on the road, those near this type of vehicle face a higher risk of serious injuries if an accident was to occur. Unfortunately, unprotected victims, such bicyclists and pedestrians, often face fatal injuries due to the impact and the sheer size of the bus.
