If you or a loved one has been injured in a bus accident in New Hampshire or Massachusetts, you may be eligible to receive compensation. At Buckley Law Offices, our bus accident attorneys are ready to review your case at your earliest convenience.
In bus accident lawsuits, it is very important to be knowledgeable about buses. The type of bus involved in the accident, the equipment installed on the bus, and the bus’ typical route can all be factors in a bus accident lawsuit. For instance, at Buckley Law Offices we know that most cross country tour buses have video cameras installed on them. These cameras can show the road, but usually, they also show the driver. An attorney who mainly handles car accidents and has no experience handling bus accidents would likely not know this.
For over thirty years, the attorneys at Buckley Law Offices have dedicated their careers to helping people like you fight for their right to receive fair compensation for their damages. We do whatever it takes to recover compensation for our bus accident clients
Like car accidents, bus accidents happen for a wide variety of reasons. Depending on the time of day, risks may be heightened or lowered. For buses, congested roads are a particular problem, as are aggressive drivers who are angry they have to share the road with commercial or public buses.
Inside of the bus, however, sits the largest risk: negligent bus driving. Fatigued driving, speeding, distracted driving, drunk driving, unsafe turn-taking, failing to yield, and inexperienced driving can all mean that a bus driver has been negligent. If negligent bus driving caused you to experience an injury, whether you were inside of the bus or outside of it, you may be eligible for compensation.
Tour buses come to and drive through New Hampshire, as we remain one of New England’s most visually iconic states. Negligent operation of a tour bus can injure not just the passengers but other drivers of other vehicles and pedestrians around the bus.
New Hampshire has over 288 school districts, and the majority of these districts have bus systems in place to transport children to and from school. The risk of bus accidents is higher due to the frequency of bus trips.
In addition to tour buses, school buses, and public buses, private buses also drive through, to, and around New Hampshire. Owners of these buses include, but are not limited to: BoltBus, MegaBus, Peter Pan, and Greyhound. These bus companies are just as liable for faulty equipment and driver negligence as public and school buses.
There are 12 intercity bus systems in New Hampshire. The state of New Hampshire and the bus operators have an obligation to utilize extreme care and caution when transporting New Hampshire residents and others across the state of New Hampshire. Unfortunately, this is not always what occurs.
If you suspect negligence was involved in your bus accident, contact Buckley Law Offices today to schedule a free consultation. We will ask you questions specific to your situation and collect evidence to determine who is at fault for your bus accident. Potentially, that could include one or more of the following:
Bus operators and bus drivers are responsible for transporting passengers safely from one location to another. If a bus driver is negligent and fails to safely transport passengers from one location to another, then you may be able to pursue legal action against the bus driver.
Manufacturers of buses have standards in place to ensure the products they sell are safe. If a bus defect is behind your bus accident, you might be able to hold the bus manufacturer financially responsible
Like all other employers, bus companies have an obligation to hire and train qualified employees. They have an obligation to buy safe buses and get them inspected and repaired regularly. If they fail to do these things, they may be held financially responsible.
Sometimes the reason why the bus crashes has little to do with the bus operator or company and is instead the fault of a pedestrian, another driver, or a bicyclist. Buckley Law Offices will review the details of your New Hampshire bus accident to determine fault during your free consultation.
