Bus Accident Injury

Bus Accidents in Alabama

Personal Injury Lawyers Huntsville | Crumbley-Blackwell-Price Attorneys

For their efficiency and environmental benefits, buses remain a popular form of transportation for many in Alabama. Buses allow multiple people to travel to a given location without everyone having to take separate vehicles—something that potentially makes everyone’s commute shorter and more efficient. However, this form of transportation is not without its drawbacks. Despite safety regulators urging operators of buses to install safety belts and other protective measures for passengers, many fail to do so.

Every year, thousands of Americans are affected in bus accidents. With the lack of safety equipment, there may be an increased risk for passengers of buses versus occupants of typical vehicles. Additionally, the larger size of buses means people in other vehicles and pedestrians can be at risk of a dangerous accident. In many bus accidents, some people may walk away with minor bumps while others have more significant injures.

Common Causes of Bus Accidents in Alabama

Bus accidents can result from many factors, including but not limited to:

  • Fatigued bus drivers
  • Failing to follow signs on the road
  • Not adjusting driving to conditions or weather
  • Going beyond the speed limit
  • Disclaimer: While this firm maintains joint responsibility, most cases of this type are referred to other attorneys for principle responsibility. Prior success is not an indication of future success. Every case is different and regardless of what friends, family or other individuals may say about a case, each case must be evaluated on its own facts and circumstances as they apply to the law. The likelihood of success in any given case depends on the facts, the jurisdiction, the venue, the witnesses, the parties and the testimony, among other factors. Furthermore, no representation is made that the quality of legal services to be performed is greater than the quality of legal services performed by other lawyers.
