Niagara Falls Bus Accident Lawyers When bus companies focus more on revenues than safety, they place passengers and others on the road in significant danger. Safety should always be every bus company and driver’s number one priority. No passengers should ever have to worry about arriving at their destinations unharmed. Allowing fatigued, inexperienced, or unqualified drivers to operate buses is completely unacceptable. Due to the sheer magnitude of buses and the long stopping distances required, even the best-equipped buses are inherently dangerous. Collisions involving buses tend to be some of the most catastrophic accidents throughout the United States.

Common Injuries Suffered in Bus Collisions

Niagara Falls Bus Accident Lawyers The massive size and weight of the average bus significantly contribute to the notoriously devastating impacts involved in most bus accidents. Packed buses can easily weigh more than 60,000 pounds, while the average passenger vehicle barely weighs 3,000 pounds. Consequently, other vehicles, especially compact cars, do not stand a chance against much larger buses. Whether you were a passenger on the bus, an occupant of another vehicle, or a pedestrian, even a minor bus crash can leave you with a lengthy and challenging road just to recover. The most prevalent injuries that bus accident victims suffer include:

  1. Deep gashes and large bruises;
  2. Brutal whiplash;
  3. Internal bleeding and organ damage;
  4. Severe neck and back injuries;
  5. Ripped tendons and ligaments;
  6. Dislocated joints;
  7. Fractured bones;
  8. Traumatic brain injuries;
  9. Total paralysis;
  10. Permanent disfigurement;
  11. Life-long disability; and
  12. Wrongful death.

If you have been involved in any type of bus accident, it is extremely important to seek emergency medical care. Receiving proper medical treatment and sufficiently documenting your injuries can help you recover faster and strengthen your claim.



Who Can Be Held Responsible for Your Bus Accident?

As common carriers, bus companies have the highest legal duty to make certain that they are operating safely, their passengers are protected, and others on the road are not placed in harm’s way. While every bus accident injury claim is unique, far too many bus collisions result from negligence by bus companies and drivers. Some common causes of Niagara Falls, New York bus accidents include distracted driving, inexperienced drivers, driving sleep deprivation, improper bus maintenance or repairs, speeding, failing to follow proper bus safety protocols, and driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol.

An overwhelming majority of all bus-related crashes are caused by negligence and could easily be avoided. Contingent on the specific events that led to your accident, the bus operator, bus company, bus manufacturer, bus mechanic, or other irresponsible motorists could all be held liable for your damages. If any of these parties breached their legal obligation and you suffered a resulting injury, the Dietrich Law Firm P.C.’s veteran attorneys can show that they were negligent. Depending on the party, breaches often arise from improper lane changing, failing to stop, hazardous bus operating practices, improper inspections, faulty bus components, bad repairs, and bus overloading.
