Las Vegas Bus Accidents

Injured by Public or Charter Buses?

From our extensive experience as Las Vegas accident attorneys, we have seen that injuries sustained due to public transportation buses or charter buses can sometimes be as detrimental as big truck accidents. These are large vehicles that can cause serious injuries to anyone involved in an accident with them. A person does not even have to be in a vehicle to be injured by these buses. Because public buses pull to the side of the road very often, it is possible to be injured as an innocent pedestrian.

Similar to car drivers, bus drivers can be negligent and cause an accident.  Buses, like car, can be speeding and fail to pay attention to other vehicles or even pedestrians on the road. Bus accidents can hurt not only pedestrians and other drivers but also the passengers in the bus. In our experience with Las Vegas bus accidents, we have seen passengers sustain some of the worst injuries. Unlike occupants of other vehicles, bus passengers involved in a Las Vegas bus accident have no seat belts and other protections.

Las Vegas bus accidents can involve public transportation, like the CAT buses, but also charter and school buses. As anyone in Las Vegas can see, our fair city has its share of charter buses, including those that take tourists to the Grand Canyon. In our experience as Las Vegas accident lawyers, we have seen quite serious injuries, including death, spinal injuries, and fractures, when a charter bus gets into an accident. We have seen charter buses go off the road, charter bus drivers who are too tired to drive, or even impaired bus drivers.

Bus Driver Caused Accidents

The negligence of a bus driver is the most disheartening of reasons a person can be injured in a bus accident. These drivers know that they have the safety of the surrounding community in their hands, yet negligent bus drivers still engage in dangerous activities such as texting and driving. These accidents are completely avoidable, but if they do occur, it is important to contact a lawyer and report the accident immediately.

Even people who think they have suffered only minor knee or shoulder injuries need to get medical attention and file an injury claim immediately. What seems like a minor injury could actually turn out to be very serious. The mishandling of these accidents can leave a person with excessive future medical bills related to the injury they sustained in the bus accident. D.R.
