Bus Accident Attorney Serving Lafayette

Bus Accidents in Lafayette, LA

There are various types of injuries related to bus accidents:

  • As a passenger riding a bus, you are entrusting your safety and well-being to the bus's driver. You are not able to control the movement of the bus as it starts, stops and encounters traffic. Since most buses do not incorporate the use of seat belts, passengers are vulnerable whether standing or seated.
  • As a pedestrian you are exceptionally vulnerable and the outcome of a bus accident can be very serious, even fatal.
  • As a motorist, your chances of coming away from the accident unharmed or with minor injuries are few.

In all of the above situations, you trust the judgment of the bus driver to make correct decisions and avoid accidents. Unfortunately, it has been found, in some cases that the bus driver or the bus company has acted in a negligent manner, putting the public at risk.
