Mandeville Bus Accident Lawyers

Mandeville residents know a thing or two about surviving hard times. Hurricanes Ike and Katrina may have dampened our spirits, but we came back stronger than ever.

One thing that makes us special is the way we watch out for each other. In that spirit, we’d like to offer the following information about how bus accidents occur. Keep these facts in mind as you use our area’s public transportation system.

The three big risk factors for bus accidents

Most of the time, a bus accident is due to one or more of the following causes:

  1. Driver inattention, fatigue, or error: Any bus is only as safe as the person operating it. Unfortunately, many bus drivers work too many hours and get too little rest. This can affect both their reflexes and their attentiveness to the surrounding environment.
  2. Mechanical or design-related problems: Modern buses are made up of thousands of intricate parts, all of which must work properly at all times to guarantee passenger safety and comfort. When design or maintenance problems go unaddressed, the public is put at risk.
  3. External risks: Even a well-maintained, well-operated bus must wind its way through narrow, densely packed streets filled with all types of vehicles driven by all types of people. It only takes a moment’s inattention on a motorist’s part to cause a serious accident.

Whatever the cause of a particular bus collision, one thing is for sure: getting the compensation you deserve takes the help of a skilled bus accident attorney.

That’s because insurance companies and negligent parties tend to focus more on their own interests rather than on doing what’s right for injury victims.

Sometimes they may even resort to tactics like denying liability, tying up claims in needless red tape, or trying to force people like you to accept a token amount of compensation.
