Macon Georgia Bus Accident Attorney
When you are on a bus, you have the luxury of leaving all the responsibilities of driving to a professional bus driver. As such, being injured in a bus accident is probably one of the last things on your mind. Unfortunately, however, bus accidents do happen, and they tend to be as dangerous as bus accident claims are legally challenging. If a bus driver’s negligence causes you or someone you love to be injured, the best course of action – after seeking the medical attention that you need – is to consult with an experienced Macon bus accident attorney.
Bus Driver Negligence
While bus drivers are professional drivers, this does not stop all of them from engaging in the same kinds of negligence that many other drivers do. Consider the following:
- Distraction – Many people place their safety in the hands of bus drivers, and when bus drivers, in turn, allow themselves to become distracted behind the wheel, they make bus accidents that much more likely (and that much more dangerous).
- Speed – Excess speed, which means a rate that exceeds the speed limit or a rate that is too fast in relation to the road’s condition, increases the odds that accidents will happen and increases the chances that they will be deadly.
- Exhaustion – Exhaustion behind the wheel can lead to impairments that rival those experienced by drunk drivers, which makes drowsy driving exceptionally dangerous. Bus drivers often spend long hours behind the wheel, which increases the risk of exhaustion.
