Bus Accident

San Diego Bus Accident Lawyer

Legal Counsel for People Injured in a Bus Accident

A large segment of the population depends on bus transportation each and every day for commuting and getting to and from personal activities.  Some do not own a car - by necessity or by choice - as gas is expensive and roads in urban areas are clogged with traffic.  While most bus drivers are courteous, well-trained operators, it is those who throw caution to the wind by driving distracted or impaired that put innocent riders and other drivers at risk.  Because a bus driver is not only responsible for his passengers' safety but also the safety of the drivers of smaller vehicles and pedestrians, they must be held to an even higher standard of care than most.  A San Diego personal injury lawyer can help those who have been injured in an accident caused by a negligent bus driver.

Regardless of the nature of the bus company - public or private - these vehicles are large, powerful and require special training and licensing.  Accidents can occur in a flash when a driver:

  • Lacks the experience and training needed to operate a large bus
  • Has been drinking before duty or is driving while intoxicated
  • Is under the influence of drugs or is under-rested in order to pull long or double shifts
  • Is distracted by passengers, use of cell phones, radio or other factors
  • Is negligent in following traffic laws

A bus company must be diligent in screening and training its employees.  When they do not hire drivers with a safe and unblemished driving record, it can lead to serious problems later down the line - as well as grievous liability issues.
