But sometimes, an accident happens. And when it does, injuries can sometimes be very severe or even fatal. That's because many bus passengers were not wearing seatbelts at the time of their crash. In addition, bus accidents often occur on highways, where buses travel at high speeds and sometimes roll over during a crash.
Knowing what to do after a serious bus accident can be confusing. Fortunately, you're not alone. A Central Florida bus accident lawyer at the Law Offices of Brent C. Miller, P.A. can help you every step of the way. We know how the legal system works here and have the case results to prove it.
Why accidents happen
Bus accidents happen for many different reasons. Some of the most common reasons include:
- Speeding (a bus driver or another driver going to fast)
- Distracted driving (a bus driver or another driver not paying attention)
- Texting while driving
- Poorly maintained bus (the bus crashes because of bad brakes, bald tires, etc.)
- Improperly loaded bus (rollover bus accidents on private or charter buses, for example)
- Bus driver falling asleep at the wheel (especially on longer bus trips)
