Buses normally do not provide restraints or seat belts for passengers leaving the occupants susceptible to major injuries during an impact or traffic collision. A long trip can be tiresome for a bus driver and he or she may give into fatigue or actually fall asleep at the wheel. Distractions such as noisy passengers, texting while driving, or using a cell phone also cause many bus accidents. Other contributing factors to bus accidents can include driving on unfamiliar roads, bad road conditions, slippery roads from rain or ice, poor visibility, tire blowout, DUI, or mechanical failure.
Insurance companies investigate accidents involving municipal buses, charters, school owned, or other types of buses because of the types of major injuries and fatalities, and the high liability to the insurance company. It is important to seek legal advice immediately following an accident and have legal representation during the entire claims procedure. A large insurance company and claims can be complicated and intimidating to the victim of a bus accident.
A settlement offer from an insurance company may be inadequate and less than the worth of an injury. An accident due to negligence may entitle the victims to monetary compensation in the form of damages for lost earnings, medical expenses, pain and suffering, and loss of companionship in the case of a fatality.
