Charter Bus Lawyer: The Facts You Need to Know After an Accident
When you or a loved one steps on a charter or tour bus, you assume the driver is properly trained, has the required credentials, and the skill to safely operate a bus.
But in many instances involving fatal or serious charter bus accidents, the fact is that’s not the case. Driver inattention and speeding, in addition to rollovers resulting from flawed designs and faulty parts, are common causes of charter bus accidents in Missouri.
Charter Bus Accident Case Result
- $2 Million for car accident victim
Plaintiff was injured when his car was rear-ended by a charter bus.
Due to their size and traveling speeds, federal and state guidelines require bus companies to provide a higher level of safety for passengers than other types of vehicles. If essential equipment isn’t provided or employees properly regulated and trained, bus companies can be held liable for passengers’ injuries after a crash – as can charter or tour bus drivers.
Increased insurance coverage, as well as the federal regulations surrounding charter bus operation and ownership, can also lead to higher settlements for injured victims. But settling a lawsuit on your own is no easy task because of all the regulations involved.
Lawsuits from charter or tour bus collisions usually involve multiple state laws and federal regulations.
How to Prepare for Your Settlement
As you might expect, technology exists to prevent many charter bus crashes and increase the odds of passenger survival (or minimal injury) when accidents do happen. The problem is the safety regulations are often not followed.
The nature of charter bus crashes – with many victims and widespread publicity – means insurance companies seek resolutions as soon as possible. In fact, you’ve likely already been asked by an adjuster to sign a release and submit a recorded statement about your bus crash.
