According to the NHTSA, there are approximately 300 fatalities from bus accidents each year. These may include accidents involving mass transit, school, religious, charter, tour, or other smaller bus types (weighing more than 10,000 pounds). Common reasons for bus accidents include negligence, driver error, improper maintenance, defective parts, or dangerous roadway and weather conditions. Bus accidents often gain more media attention than other motor vehicle accidents because it is never the passenger’s faults and the usually large numbers of victims may command more sympathy for a news story; even though all traffic accident fatalities should command our sympathy and most motor vehicle accidents causing fatalities and injuries are often foreseeable and preventable.

As with other motor vehicle accidents, common injuries are: abrasions, burns, bone fractures, internal organ damage, and brain and spinal cord injuries. One of the deadliest bus accidents in recent history occurred just south of Dallas in September 2005. A Greyhound bus was carrying disabled and elderly residents from a retirement home evacuating ahead of hurricane Rita, the bus exploded and caused 24 deaths with the other 14 passengers injured. It was determined the original fire was due to mechanical failure and improper maintenance of the rear brakes. The fire then caused more explosions of the passenger’s oxygen tanks with only the front door as an exit route.

Bus accident cases can be very complicated depending on whether you are dealing with a private company, government entity, charitable organization, or public mass transit provider. A competent and experienced attorney can help you sort through the state and federal laws to determine liability in your case; and whether there are multiple parties you should file against for compensation of your injuries and losses.
