Bus Accidents

Burning Bus AccidentBus accidents are not as frequent as other automotive accidents, but have the potential to be disastrous because of the amount of passengers a bus can hold. Approximately 360 million Americans use buses as transportation, not to mention the millions of children that ride them to school everyday without seat belts. Bus companies have a much higher liability for injury to their passengers than any other motorists or pedestrians, because buses are intended as passenger vehicles. If you were involved in a bus accident, this heightened liability can be advantageous to you as a victim.

Causes of Arizona Bus Accidents

The following list comprises the most common factors that contribute to bus accidents in Arizona:

  • Defective machinery
  • Poorly maintained machinery
