Bus drivers carry a lot of responsibility. Their job is to get people to their intended destinations not only on time but more importantly getting them there safely. At Berger and Green we understand that sometimes that is not always the case. Bus driver negligence can result in serious and sometimes fatal accidents for not only passengers but others on the road.
The following are types of incidents associated with bus driver negligence that could result in an accident:
- Failure to obey traffic control signals
- Driver fatigue
- Poor bus maintenance such as worn tires and brakes
- Speeding and aggressive driving
- Distracted driving, texting or using cell phone
If you or someone you know sustained injuries in a bus accident due to a bus driver’s error or carelessness, you may have a personal injury claim. At Berger and Green, we represent individuals in claims involving intercity buses, school buses, public transportation and private charters such as tour buses.
If you have sustained a serious disabling injury, you should contact an experienced personal injury attorney. At Berger and Green we will seek maximum compensation on your behalf.
