During these tough economic times, an increasing number of people are using public transportation, whether it is taking an interstate drive to visit a relative going to work, or a quick shopping trick to a local grocery store.
Riding the bus is one of the most affordable options available and is becoming increasingly more popular. The response from bus companies to this big increase in demand is to cut costs across the board, in order to maximize their profits. Consequently, they are not recruiting as many drivers, and those that do get jobs are overworked and underpaid. Monotonous, long routes frequently result in a driver becoming physically exhausted, and these stresses will inevitably lead to a driver making a mistake that results in a serious accident.
Given the weight and sheer size of the vehicles, bus accidents are frequently horrific events that may involve catastrophic bodily injury. Bus accident victims are ill-prepared to take the bus industry on while attempting to recover from their trauma. When it comes to bus accidents, there are also specialized regulations and rules that apply, so individuals attempting to make an injury claim need to have an experienced and reputable injury attorney to help guide them through this treacherous process.
