Common Causes of Bus Accidents

Some bus-related accidents occur because of external factors such as poor weather; e.g. fog, snow, ice, etc. Many others happen due to circumstances that could have been prevented. These include:

  • Speeding;
  • Faulty engine parts;
  • Maintenance/mechanical failure;
  • Driving while under the influence of alcohol or drugs (DUI);
  • Distracted driving (texting, dialing, eating, or otherwise not paying attention);
  • Failure to follow traffic laws (turning without signaling, failure to yield right of way, etc.); and
  • Unqualified/poorly trained drivers.

When an accident occurs, there are often multiple factors, making it difficult to determine the exact cause and who is at fault. For this reason, it is important to act early and gather all relevant information to build a rock-solid case based on the facts.
