McDonough Ga. Bus Accident Attorney

McDonough Ga. Bus Accident Attorney

When you hop on a bus, you likely don’t give your safety much thought. In fact, the sheer convenience of leaving the driving to a professional can be a real relief. Bus accidents, however, tend to be as dangerous as their claims are complicated. If you’ve been injured by someone else’s negligence in a bus accident, you need the professional legal counsel of an experienced McDonough bus accident attorney.

The Bus Company

When you think of bus accidents, your thoughts may land on bus driver negligence, but the bus company itself also shoulders considerable responsibility in the matter. In fact, all the following safety-related tasks fall to the bus company:

  • Hiring safe, experienced bus drivers who have the appropriate commercial driver’s license (CDL)
  • Hiring experienced, skilled bus mechanics and providing them with the quality parts and tools necessary to keep their buses in good working order
  • Maintaining a safe fleet of buses.
  • Not pushing their drivers to work outside the legal hours-of-service restrictions.

The Bus Driver

Bus drivers are responsible for navigating their massive vehicles safely through traffic – from destination to destination – and any form of negligence can prove exceptionally dangerous. Bus driver negligence can take all the following forms and more:

  • Impairment
  • Distraction
  • Excess speed
  • Aggression
  • Exhaustion

The immense size and weight of commercial buses help to ensure that bus accidents are seriously dangerous. Bus safety begins with safe bus drivers.
