Lake City Bus Accident Attorney
Buses offer us a good deal of convenience, and they can help people to get across town, to tour the country, and even to get from an airport to a hotel. Because of their immense size and weight, however, accidents involving buses are often especially dangerous. If you or someone you care about has been injured in a bus accident, reach out to a dedicated Lake City bus accident lawyer today.
The Bus Driver
When it comes to preventing bus accidents, bus drivers obviously play a primary role. Bus drivers are professional drivers, which means they are responsible for adhering to far more rigid state and federal safety rules and regulations (implemented to help keep our roadways safer for all). Bus driver negligence is often directly related to ensuing bus accidents, and there is a wide variety of such negligence, including:
- Distracted Bus Drivers – Bus drivers are responsible for driving large numbers of passengers safely from place to place, and there is absolutely no room in this equation for distractions.
- Exhausted Bus Drivers – There are careful hours-of-service restrictions in place for the very reason that exhausted drivers endanger everyone on the road. Drowsy bus drivers do not belong behind the wheel.
- Impaired Bus Drivers – The law takes a dim view of – and has zero-tolerance for – impaired bus drivers.
- Aggressive Bus Drivers – Bus drivers are responsible for ferrying passengers safely to their destinations, and aggression should play no role in this task. Aggressive drivers are erratic drivers whose hallmark is excessive speed, and they put others at risk.
