Houston Wrongful Death Lawyers for Bus Accidents
Like trucks and other motor vehicles, there are many accidents involving buses in Houston and Texas. As a common carrier, many of these bus accidents are investigated by the National Transportation Safety Board (“NTSB”) while others are investigated by local law enforcement. In either case, major accidents involving buses – especially those involving fatalities that might result in a wrongful death case – are almost always immediately investigated by the insurance company for the bus company. There is only reason they jump on this type of investigation, to safe money for the insurance carrier and prevent the victims from obtaining the compensation they deserve.
There are many types of buses that serve the needs of the people of our area, including:
- Casino buses
- Private tour buses
- Airport buses
- School buses
When accidents in Houston occur involving these and other buses, determining the cause and building a case that can create accountability and secure compensation require a thorough investigation that can get to the facts and clearly show how the bus company is responsible.
Common causes of these accidents include:
- Mechanical failure
- Driver fatigue
- Poor driver training
If you have lost a loved one to a fatal bus accident, it is very important that you have an attorney working to gather the evidence that will be needed to create the accountability you and your family deserve.
