Common Causes of Bus Accidents
Bus accidents are caused by factors ranging from dangerous roadways and weather conditions to driver negligence and improper maintenance. Long distance charter buses are especially at risk for driver fatigue. Improper employee screening and poorly maintained equipment can be traced back to company fault, however, especially in the case of school buses, these cases can become quite complex.
The Danger of School Bus Accidents
Perhaps the scariest bus accidents are those that include school buses. School buses transport millions of children every day, and although strict safety measures are in place, accidents still happen.
More than one-quarter of accidents involving school buses occur when a child is boarding or leaving the bus.
Furthermore, most full-size school buses are not equipped with restraint systems or seat belts to help protect children in a collision. Fortunately, the number of passenger fatalities for school buses is relatively small due to their low traveling speed and large size.
To help you pinpoint the cause of a school bus accident and take proper action, look no further than the experienced Kansas City bus accident attorneys at Peterson & Associates, P.C.!
Compensation for Bus Accident Victims
Litigation involving bus accidents can be quite complex. There are often several victims as well as several defendants. Furthermore, special issues can arise when the defendants are municipalities or school districts. If the bus is considered to be a common carrier, questions about federal safety standards and licensing may be involved. Don’t try to handle these complex situations on your own.
If you or your child has been injured in a bus accident, you may be able to file a claim. Please don’t hesitate to contact Peterson & Associates, P.C.
