Have You Been Injured? We're Ready to Fight for You.

Louisville Bus Accident Attorney

Bus accidents are relatively uncommon. But like aviation accidents, when they occur, the consequences can be devastating, catastrophic and headline-grabbing. A 2009 Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration study examined the causes of common bus crashes, and researchers presented their findings to Congress shortly thereafter. According to the FMCSA, common causes of bus crashes include:

  • Pedestrian interference
  • Bus driver driving inappropriately (e.g. too fast)
  • Bad weather and road conditions
  • Bus veering out of a lane or making abrupt lane changes
  • Bus, truck, motorcycle lurking or stopped in a bus only lane

If you or someone you love was involved in a bus accident, time is of the essence. You need to contact a Louisville, KY bus accident lawyer who can help you receive the compensation you and any other victims need to recover.

Who Might Be Liable for Your Bus Accident Injury?

Whether your young son suffered a contusion and dislocated shoulder in a school bus accident injury; or your great aunt lost her life in a terrible truck-on-bus collision on the highway, you want answers, help, and a resolution to your confusion. If a bus company, municipality, or negligent or careless driver was in any way responsible for the accident, that party can be potentially held liable for the costs of injuries to you and your family. Depending on the size and severity of the accident, the various injured parties (plaintiffs) can join forces, legally, and sue one or more defendants in what’s known as a class action lawsuit.

Bus accidents are often far more complicated that they first appear to be. Multiple causal factors might have been at play. For instance, consider the case of a theoretical school bus accident. A deep analysis of the crash may reveal that the bus driver had been DUI when the accident occurred. Thus, not only might you be able to sue the driver and his insurer for damages, but you may also hold liable the company that failed to screen the driver for a history of alcohol abuse.
