Northeast Philadelphia, PA Bus Accident Injury Lawyers Identify Common Causes
There are a litany of factors which may play a role in a bus related accident. Our Northeast Philadelphia lawyers have identified some of the most frequent culprits:
- Bus driver exhaustion – we all get tired on the job, but most of us are not operating 40,000 pound city buses
- Bus driver distraction – it is unlawful for public transportation operators, including bus drivers, to operate their vehicles while distracted. The most common distractions for bus drivers involve cell phone use
- Improperly maintained buses – the companies who own and operate buses are legally responsible for the upkeep of their equipment
- Illegal and/or reckless driving – bus drivers may be in violation of posted laws when they are involved in an accident
Levittown, PA Bus Related Accident Attorneys Find Fault
Depending on the nature of your specific accident, several parties may be found at fault for your injuries. Here are some examples of liable parties and situations in which you may have a strong personal injury claim.
Bus companies – the companies which own and operate the buses are responsible for maintenance and personnel management. This may lead the bus companies to be at fault if there is a mechanical breakdown leading to an injurious accident. They may also be liable in the case of an overworked, exhausted, or improperly trained drivers causing an accident.
As mentioned in the previous section, the negligent or reckless behavior of bus drivers due to driving unlawfully may cause an injurious accident. As employees of the bus companies, the bus company will be held liable for the actions of the drivers.
Property owners or public entities – if your bus accident injuries were caused by dangerous conditions which were outside the bus driver and/or other actors’ control, you may have a claim against the property owners as part of Pennsylvania premises liability statutes. For example, if road conditions were unlawfully dangerous, you may have a claim against the entity responsible for their upkeep.
