Walton County Bus Accident Attorney
There are all kinds of buses out there that help us get where we need to be. Because of their large size and the number of passengers they carry, bus accidents tend to be exceptionally dangerous. If you’ve been injured in a bus accident, an experienced Walton County bus accident lawyer can help.
Bus drivers are professional drivers, which means they are held to stricter safety rules and regulations. Bus accidents, nevertheless, are often the result of bus driver negligence, which can come in any of the following dangerous forms:
- Exhaustion – There are careful hours-of-service restrictions in place that are intended to help keep drowsy bus drivers off our roads, but when bus drivers push these limits, dangerous bus accidents can result.
- Impairment – The law takes a very firm – zero-tolerance – stance against impaired bus drivers.
- Distraction – Driving a bus safely requires the bus driver’s utmost attention, and there is simply no safe place for outside distractions. Bus drivers who get lost in their phones (or anything else) are dangerous bus drivers who shouldn’t be on the road.
- Excess Speed – Buses are large and cumbersome, which makes them more difficult to maneuver safely over our roads and through traffic. When bus drivers take it upon themselves to exceed the speed limit or to drive at a speed that is unsafe in relation to conditions on the ground, danger often ensues.
