Bus Accident Attorneys

Each year approximately three hundred fatal bus accidents occur, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA). Fatalities, damage to property and the likelihood of severe injury and disability are all devastating outcomes of bus accidents.

A bus accident can leave victims with devastating, life-altering injuries. Charter bus companies have a responsibility to ensure that the passengers on their buses arrive to and from their destination safely. These tour buses should be extremely safe, especially considering the high rate at which high schools and colleges utilize tour buses to carry students to sporting events, field trips, and other events. Federal law requires buses/bus companies to provide a high level of safety to their passengers and when this is violated, causing you or a loved one harm, they need to be held responsible.

When bus drivers and/or bus companies are the cause of an accident, the bus company is liable to all injured parties and the families of any parties that lost a life as a result. Our bus accident attorneys have the experience, investigators, and experts needed to get you the compensation deserved after suffering an injury as a result of a negligent bus driver or bus company.


Bus accidents cause many different types of injuries, often severe or even catastrophic. Common injuries passengers suffer when in a bus accident include:


  • Driving recklessly
  • Poor weather conditions/visibility
  • Defective bus equipment
  • Improper bus maintenance
  • Dangerous roadways
  • Bus driver fatigue
  • Driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol


There are numerous parties that could be found liable for your bus accident injury, including:

  • The driver
  • The management company
  • Bus equipment manufacturers
  • Other negligent drivers
  • Government entities, if a public bus
