Bus accidents are unique.
An injury accident involving a bus is going to be handled much differently than a normal passenger car accident. There are many variables involved, each of which can have a substantial impact on how your case must be handled.
While most people don’t realize this, commercial bus drivers actually operate under an additional set of federal rules laid out by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA). These laws clearly define how long the driver can be behind the wheel, how long the vehicle can be in motion before the driver must rest, when the driver is permitted to use a mobile phone, and more.
In addition, the sheer fact that buses carry multiple passengers brings up another issue; insurance coverage. While buses generally have adequate liability insurance coverage, when multiple parties are injured in the same accident, the cumulative demands can easily exceed the policy coverage.
It’s for this reason that you must act quickly if you’ve been injured in a bus accident. Waiting to file your claim is never a good idea, but in this case, it could affect your ability to recover anything.
If you’ve been hurt in a Dallas bus accident, your first step should be to seek medical attention. Your next step, however, should be to contact a personal injury lawyer.
Causes of bus crashes.
There are a number of reasons a bus may get into an accident, but driver fatigue seems to be one of the most common. Some of the other common (but somewhat less frequent) causes of bus accidents include:
- Road rage or driving aggressively
- Alcohol and drug abuse
- Too much time on the road
- Mechanical problems (improper maintenance)
- Error on the part of the driver
- Distractions while driving (cell phone use is common)

Some of the more common injuries that an individual may face when involved in a bus accident include:
- Trauma to the head
- Brain injuries or TBI
- Injuries to the spinal cord (paralysis)
