Buses are one of the primary means of public transport. Unfortunately, instances of negligence and recklessness can cause serious accidents, which often involve numerous victims.
For many people, their general means of transportation are buses. It is a fact the law recognizes and values. That is why there are regulations that specifically apply to buses to protect the safety of bus passengers and the general public. Unfortunately, sometimes bus drivers or bus companies carelessly dismiss their responsibilities.
Usual Causes of Bus Accidents
Compared to other motor vehicles, buses have a lower risk of getting into accidents. However, when a bus gets into an accident, the chances of having serious injuries are higher compared to other ground transportation vehicles. This is because of several factors. One is the lack of safety restraints. Most buses don’t have seatbelt or airbags. Another factor is the sheer size and height of buses, which influence the buses’ stability and center of gravity, making them prone to tip-over.
Here are some of the common causes of bus accidents:
- Driving Under the Influence
- Driver Fatigue
- Maintenance Failure
- Tire Failure
- Inadequate Bus Driver Training

Jimmy Cook got me a 100k settlement for my car accident claim. The insurance company was trying to say I was at fault. I honestly wasn’t expecting but a few thousand dollars at best. I’m still on vacation after receiving my settlement. Thanks Jimmy
I went to see Jimmy Cook at Cook Law Office for my automobile accident. His office staff was always very nice and professional and I always was able to speak to someone if I had a question or concern. I did not think I would be able to get my bills paid but his office was able to get me a good settlement that took care of any bills I still owed. I have another accident and am having Jimmy Cook handle that one as well. I would recommend Cook Law Office to anyone that has an injury.
I was very glad I went to Jimmy to handle my accident. The staff always answered my questions my questions quickly, no matter how big or small. Cook Law Office was able to get me the policy limits and avoid filing a lawsuit. I would recommend Jimmy Cook to anyone who has been hurt in an accident.
This guy is amazing. When I met him he said we have the potential of getting a huge settlement. After some medical results came back there was not as much damage as originally thought. I was expecting little to no compensation. Just got the settlement and the amount was a lot closer to his original estimate even with the minimal damage. I also liked how he kept me in the loop. I did not have to call and wait for an answer. Mr. Cook and Victoria called often.
