Sharing the road with buses presents an inherent risk because a bus is so large and may be holding so many passengers. Buses' size and weight makes it more difficult for them to maneuver and brake as quickly or effectively as smaller vehicles. This can mean that they are more likely to cause or be involved in accidents and, because of how many passengers they may be carrying, their accidents can lead to a multitude of injuries.
Bus accidents can occur because of a variety of causes, but if you were involved in one and believe it was due to the negligence of the bus driver or bus company, you may have grounds for a lawsuit. Please contact Christopher W. Jeffress of Jeffress Law today for help with your case. Mr. Jeffress can draw upon his 25 years of experience with personal injury lawsuits in order to seek the maximum compensation for you and your family.

Causes of Bus Accidents
An accident involving a bus may occur because of the negligence on the part of the car it collides with, however, if it occurs because of negligence on the part of the bus driver or bus company, then all those involved may have recourse to file a lawsuit. Bus accidents commonly occur because of the following:
- Drunk driving by the bus driver
- Bus driver falls asleep
- Bus driver not obeying street signs, speed limits, and other laws or regulations
- Bus fails because it has not been properly maintained
- Bus driver is driving while distracted by technology or anything else
