Whether an accident involves a bus, motorcoach, tourist bus, school bus, private shuttle, or any other form of public transport, Power & Power Law can help.
When we board a bus, we rely on the bus driver to get us to our destination safely. The driver owes us the “utmost care” and “vigilance.” When an accident is caused by the driver’s negligence, recklessness, distracted diriving, or driving while under the influence of drugs or alcohol, the driver and his company are liable for the injuries or death resulting from the accident.
If the accident is the result of a defective bus, including faulty brakes or improper bus maintenance, the bus company is liable for the injuries or death resulting from the accident.
Accordingy to the National Highway Traffice Safety Administration, approximately 300 fatal bus crashes occur annually in the United States. During Alaskan summers, the rise of tourism increases the risk to bus passengers and other drivers on the road.
