Personal Injury Law – Bus Accident Attorneys
Bus Accidents can be Extremely Dangerous & Cause Devastating Injury. If You or a Loved one has Been Injured in a Texas Bus Accident, Call our Law Firm
Traveling by bus is increasing in popularity. But in Texas, bus accidents seem to become more common. Think about all of the bus accident stories you see in the news. Don’t they seem to be happening with more frequency? The troubling thing about bus accidents is that more than with other vehicles, any single accident often injures and kills from one to many passengers.
Have you been injured in an accident involving a bus in or around Texas? Our prominent personal injury attorneys know how to get what you rightfully deserve due to negligence on the part of either the driver or the carrier. A variety of bus accidents can occur on a local small transit company bus, on a school bus, maybe to one of the national carriers like Greyhound or Trailways that criss-cross all of our state’s highways, or one of the many charter services that often visit our communities.
Bus accidents can occur at any time and for a number of different reasons. But negligence or oversight by the carrier should not, and does not, shield them from civil liability. So they are not immune to rightful insurance claims or other civil actions that might be appropriate. But there are some givens that you should be aware of; if you are about to take on these powerful carriers, and the insurance companies that defend them.
Bus companies, be they transit authorities, national lines, coach companies or those that contract out to local school districts are usually treated as “common” (or public) carriers. This means that although they are not obligated to “ensure” the safety of their passengers, they have what is called an “affirmative obligation” (or duty) to protect them from harm, including injuries that might occur when an accident happens. All of them are required to have expensive liability insurance policies if they are to operate in Texas. So there’s likely to be enough money to compensate those who have been injured in an accident. But as with all defendants who have insurance, their underwriter will go to great lengths to defend their policyholders with adjusters and well-compensated attorneys because the mission of the insurance industry is to take-in the premiums and fight like the dickens in order to avoid paying claims. And it’s been that way for generations.
In the event that the accident has occurred to a school bus or one of the local transit authorities, injured plaintiffs will find themselves up against quasi-government entities who benefit from favorable laws that discourage people from using them.
So the route to successful compensation is usually one with many twists and turns that inexperienced attorneys (and non-attorneys) have a difficult – if not impossible – time when trying to convince the defendants that they must pay for their negligence if that is found to be the case.
