    Common Causes of Bus Accidents

    Bus crashes occur when a public transit bus, school bus, tour bus, or similar commercial vehicle crashes into another vehicle, pedestrian, animal, or a non-moving object.

    The cause of these vehicle accidents is often human error. City bus or school bus accidents can be caused by:

    • Distracted driving
    • Driver fatigue
    • Dangerous road or weather conditions
    • Mechanical failure
    • Driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol
    • Negligence of the driver

    Common Types of Bus Accidents

    Commercial vehicles like buses are larger and hold more passengers than standard motor vehicles.  The size and capacities of these vehicles means that more motorists have the potential to encounter catastrophic injuries. The personal injury lawyers at Anthem Injury Lawyers are experienced at dealing with personal injury claims involving:

    • School district buses
    • Tour buses
    • Charter buses
    • City and metro buses
    • Shuttle buses
    • Public buses

    Common Bus Accident Injuries

    • Broken bones
    • Spinal cord injuries
    • Traumatic brain injuries

    Responsible Parties

    Under Nevada law, there are numerous parties that may be held responsible for injuries that you’ve suffered in a bus accident.  In the United States, every motor vehicle owner and operator has a “duty of care” to ensure that vehicles are safe to be on the road and carefully operated.  If a bus driver or bus owner fails to fulfill this duty, they will be liable for the resulting damages and injuries.

    bus accidents
    • A bus driver may be held responsible if the accident was caused by driver error or negligence such as driving under the influence, driver fatigue, or traffic violations.
    • A bus company may be held accountable for an accident if it was caused by improper vehicle maintenance, mechanical failure, or inexperienced or poorly trained drivers.
    • A city or state agency may be held liable if the vehicle is owned or operated by a city, county or state government agency such as a RTC bus.  Claims against government agencies may be subject to additional rules and a shorter statute of limitations during which a claim can be filed.
