Bus Accidents in Nevada

In Nevada, the bus companies are classified as “common carriers,” and under the law owe a heightened duty of care to passengers.

Bus Accident Negligence

There are many potential forms of negligence which can lead to a serious bus accident, and the issue of bus drivers who drive while under the effects of (prescribed) narcotics or anxiety medications is a growing safety menace.

Sometimes, bus company HR departments will order injured drivers back to work, even though they are aware that the bus company’s workman’s compensation doctor has prescribed narcotic pain pills to the driver in an amount that will affect him during work hours.

Common sorts of negligence by the bus companies would include the following:

  • Inadequate maintenance of bus, particularly brakes and tires
  • Right turns that ‘squeeze’ vehicles to the right of the bus
  • Speeding
  • Closing door on person who is still in the door well
  • Sudden stops or starts before boarding passengers are seated
  • Jumping curbs before passengers are seated
  • Not securing wheelchairs properly
  • Hiring drivers with bad driving records or dangerous health issues

Fighting For Your Fair Compensation

There are a number of potential liable parties in a bus accident, and claims against government agencies can often be far more complex. A fault free passenger may assert joint liability against both the bus company, and another automobile, if both the bus driver and auto driver were at fault. For these reasons, and many more, it is crucial to retain counsel from a skilled Las Vegas personal injury attorney.

When you need effective, highly experienced counsel, turn to The Law Offices of Steven M. Burris. For more than 40 years, their attorneys have fought tirelessly on behalf of injury victims and their families, working to recover fair compensation for medical bills, lost income, and so much more.
