Typical Causes of Bus Accidents
Determining the cause of a bus accident is the first step in establishing liability against the company. In many cases, both the driver and the company that employs him or her will be at fault, making both of them responsible for your injuries and damages.
While a vast number of factors and conditions can cause or contribute to a bus accident, the most common causes include:
- Driver Fatigue;
- Driver Inattention;
- Driver Error;
- Aggressive Driving;
- Poor Bus Maintenance (bald tires, worn brakes, etc.); and
- Mechanical Failure

Common Bus Accident Injuries
Bus accidents can result in a range of injuries, from relatively minor bumps, bruises and scrapes to more serious injuries including broken bones, internal injuries and even death. When larger, heavier trucks collide with smaller, lighter passenger cars, the results for the passengers of the smaller vehicle can be tragic. People involved in bus crashes or rollovers should seek immediate medical attention to ensure that no life-threatening injuries have been sustained.
