Bus Accident Injuries

Houston Bus Accident Attorneys

Were You Injured in a City or Private Bus Accident?

Drivers of commercial and charter buses, such as Greyhound, METRO, Amtrak, DART, etc. are held to a higher standard of driving safety than other drivers, as their sole duty is to safely transport other individuals. If you are injured while riding a bus due to the driver’s negligence or the bus company’s negligence, you may be able to secure compensation for your damages.

To stand the best chance of receiving the maximum amount of compensation, you should enlist the legal support of a Houston bus accident lawyer from our firm.

If you or a loved one has been injured in a bus accident, call Fibich, Leebron, Copeland & Briggs today at (713) 999-3681. We can discuss your case in a free consultation and provide you with trusted legal counsel.

Causes of Bus Accidents

Although commercial and charter bus companies offer a great benefit to commuters, there is no guarantee for passenger safety. Houston bus operators have been known to violate traffic rules just like any other reckless driver on the road. For example, in 2010, a Houston METRO bus collided with a METRO light rail train, resulting in 20 injured passengers. It was reported that this accident occurred due to the bus driver running a red light.  Common causes of bus accidents include:

  • The driver’s negligence, including traffic errors, driving while fatigued or driving while intoxicated
  • Poor maintenance of the bus
  • Poor security on the bus (failure to prevent dangerous criminal activity on board the vehicle)

Liability of Bus Accidents

Bus drivers are responsible for staying alert while driving and for taking a high level of precaution as they drive. They are also responsible for ensuring that the bus is being taken care of (that they are not operating it while serious repairs or maintenance have not been performed) and that the passengers are able to enter and exit the vehicle safely.
In Texas, commercial bus companies provide insurance policies that cover a minimum of $5 million per accident for buses with the capacity for 26 or more passengers. Smaller buses with a capacity of 15-26 hold insurance policies that cover at least $500,000.

This total amount will be divided among all injured parties in an accident, so depending on the number of passengers involved, you may need a lawyer to employ an aggressive strategy that will help ensure you receive the share you deserve.

Do Not Wait to Secure the Representation You Need

If you or a loved one has suffered an injury in an accident involving a commercial or charter bus, do not hesitate to begin the process of filing a claim for compensation. The sooner you act, the better.
