One of the most common causes of bus accidents is poorly maintained or out-of-adjustment brakes. As with an accident involving trucking equipment maintenance, a bus accident may include multiple parties responsible for the equipment failure.
The other principal cause of bus accidents is driver fatigue. A bus accident caused by a drowsy driver may put entire youth groups, senior tour groups, or families in danger. As with cases involving commercial trucking driver fatigue, the company as well as the driver may have some responsibility.
Further legal complexity may challenge bus accident victims if the bus was a municipal bus, as governmental regulations and protocols can make the claims process drag on and on.
