When we board a bus, we expect that the driver of that bus will operate it safely. In many instances, we are putting our own safety as well as the safety of our loved ones, in the hands of another. A passenger on a bus does not have the ability to slow down, proceed with caution, or remain alert at all times. They must rely on the bus driver to do these things.
Though bus drivers have an obligation to drive in a safe and cautious manner, unfortunately, they do not always abide by these basic principles. When bus drivers fail to drive and operate a bus in a safe and cautious manner, people can be severely hurt or killed.
If you or someone you know has ben involved in a bus accident, contact our New Jersey Bus Accident Attorneys. Our lawyers handle bus accidents across the state of New Jersey including accidents occurring in the counties of Monmouth, Middlesex and all other New Jersey counties.
Because of the large number of people aboard a bus at any single time, the driver of the bus must always ensure that he or she operates the bus in the safest manner possible. If the driver fails to operate the bus in the safest manner possible, he or she causes needless public danger, which often results in injuries or even death. When someone is injured because of a bus driver’s dangerous actions, that individual may be entitled to compensation under the laws of the state of New Jersey. The attorneys at our firm fight for the victims of bus accidents to ensure that their rights are protected and they receive the compensation they deserve.
In addition to an individual bus drivers duty to ensure public safety, the bus company or owner of the bus, has various legal duties. The bus company must ensure that the bus is properly maintained and equipped with all necessary safety equipment. The bus company or owner must also properly monitor the drivers they employ, to ensure that the drivers are operating their buses in a safe manner.
In some instances, both the bus company and the individual bus driver may bear some responsibility for a bus accident. Who bears responsibility is obviously a detailed factual and legal analysis, therefore, it is important to contact a New Jersey Bus Accident Attorney as soon as possible after a bus accident has occurred.
