Richmond Bus Accident Attorney
Buses are one of the most common methods of public transportation in Texas. Whether traveling to school, around one of the many cities, or even across the state buses carry thousands of people every day to where they need to go. When a bus accident occurs, there is a significant possibility that many people will be injured in the same crash. Have you been injured in a bus accident? If so, you need to speak with the Richmond bus accident attorneys at The West Law Office today to schedule a free consultation and learn more about your rights to compensation after a crash.
Common Causes of Bus Accidents
There are many reasons why a bus accident might happen, but a large number of crashes every year are caused by bus driver negligence. Speeding, aggressive driving, driving fatigued, distracted driving, failing to obey traffic signs and signals, and failure to check for other vehicles or pedestrians in the road can all lead to a devastating crash. Bus companies or city municipalities might also be responsible for a bus accident if the crash was caused by an equipment failure on the vehicle, inadequate driver training, failure to perform driver background checks, and failing to do routine inspections on the buses. Whatever the cause, an experienced bus accident attorney will fight for your right to compensation if you are injured in a bus crash.
Bus Accident Victims & Injuries
Many different people can be the victims of bus accidents. Passengers riding in the bus are often victims when a bus crashes, but there are others, as well. Other motorists, bicyclists, pedestrians, and motorcyclists are all potential victims when a bus crash occurs. Given the sheer size and force of a bus, the injuries sustained by victims are often catastrophic.
Bus accident injuries can easily cause permanent and severe damage to crash victims. Some of the most common injuries caused by bus accidents include:
- Head injuries
- Neck injuries
- Traumatic brain injuries
- Face injuries
- Broken bones
- Amputation injuries
- Crushing injuries
- Broken bones
- Nerve damage
- Internal bleeding and organ damage
