Connecticut Bus Accidents
In a span of 6 years, the number of injuries caused by bus crashes increased 62% according to the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration. Due to their massive size and extreme weight, buses can cause some of the worst accidents and result in extremely severe injuries. Collisions with these large vehicles can lead to traumatic brain injuries, paralysis, broken bones, burn injuries, and other catastrophic injuries. Along with the physical injuries, a bus accident can also result in a lot of fear, pain, and mental suffering.
Our Connecticut personal injury attorneys at Hastings, Cohan & Walsh, LLP have had decades of experience handling cases involving bus accidents and the injuries that can result. We understand how to navigate these types of cases and get you the compensation you need.
Bus Accident Causes & Lawsuits
Bus accidents can occur through a variety of causes, including drunk driving, distracted driving, and speeding. They can also happen because of poor weather, improper bus maintenance, or dangerous roadways. Due to the fact that there can be so many potential causes, there can often be multiple people or organizations that are liable for the accident.
Our Connecticut bus accident lawyers can file a lawsuit against the following:
- The bus driver
- The company that owns the bus
- The company that maintains the bus
- The manufacturers of the equipment on the bus
- The government (if it's a public bus)
