Bus Accidents

Cape Cod Bus Accident Attorneys

Bus accidents are often serious crashes that cause significant injuries. At the Law Offices of John C. Manoog III, our Plymouth bus accident lawyers have seen firsthand the severe damage that can occur when a bus collides with a car, truck, motorcycle, bicycle, or pedestrian. Since 1994, our firm has been committed to helping clients on their individual roads to recovery after an accident. We take pride in fighting on behalf of injured persons to get them the legal remedies they deserve, while seeking to hold those who are responsible legally liable for their actions.

Bus Accident Injuries

Roughly 11,000 bus accidents happen each year nationwide, according to the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration, resulting in injuries to about 24,000 passengers. Fatal accidents in recent years have prompted federal and state authorities to push for increased safety regulations aimed at preventing crashes and reducing the potential for harm caused by them. Yet as bus ridership climbs throughout the country, it is simply a matter of fact that accidents can and will continue to happen. Injuries from bus accidents often include:

  • Cuts, bumps, and bruises
  • Sprains and strains
  • Whiplash
  • Concussions
  • Heart attacks and other stress-induced ailments
  • Broken bones
  • Head trauma
  • Death
We Can Help You Obtain Damages for Your Injuries

Fortunately, the law provides a wide range of legal remedies for a person injured in a bus accident caused by another's negligence. Bus operators are not only required to be licensed, but also to drive their vehicles with reasonable care. That means obeying traffic signs, speed limits and the other rules of the road, while remaining alert and attentive at all times. Among other negligent behavior, bus accidents are often caused by unsafe activities, such as:

  • Fall asleep at the wheel
  • Talking, texting, or surfing the web with a smart phone
  • Eating and drinking
  • Operating a bus under the influence of drugs or alcohol
  • Driving a bus that needs repair or is otherwise unsafe for operation

To recover damages in a personal injury suit stemming from a bus accident, the person suing must not only show that this or other unsafe behavior caused a crash, but also that the accident caused the injuries allegedly suffered. Damages available for successful negligence claims related to bus accidents include missed wages, doctors bills and other medical expenses, property damage and loss and pain and suffering. Further, a victim of a bus accident can also seek to hold the bus company (and its insurer) liable for the negligent acts of a driver, as well as any failure on the company’s part to maintain its vehicles in safe operating condition.
