Bus Accident Lawyer Louisville Kentucky
Commercial buses make travel convenient for large groups of people. They can be a cheaper and easier alternative to flying and a safe way for a large group to reach a destination like a wedding, concert, or sporting event. Despite their upsides, buses can pose a danger to others on the road and can also be crashed into by others driving unsafely.
Satterley & Kelley, PLLC, protects the legal rights of accident victims who may be entitled to compensation for their injuries. Whether you are a bus passenger, one struck your vehicle, or you were injured by one as a pedestrian, we can help.
How Can a Bus Cause an Accident?
Some of the reasons a bus may cause an accident include:
Bus owners must comply with laws and regulations intended to keep these vehicles safe. But these requirements may be ignored, and owners may falsify documentation meant to confirm maintenance and repairs.
How Can a Bus Driver Cause an Accident?
Most accidents are caused by driver error. Problems involving bus drivers include:
Bus drivers, like all drivers, make mistakes and have bad habits. But the accidents they cause, compared to passenger vehicle drivers, can result in far more injuries and deaths because of all the passengers (and others on the road) who may be involved.
