Bus Accident Attorney in El Paso

Committed to Quality Representation

Bus accidents often result in very serious injuries for those involved. Whether you were hit by a bus or were a passenger in a bus accident, you may be dealing with severe, life-changing injuries. It's important that you seek quality legal representation after a collision involving a bus, as the private or public company that owns the bus or represents the bus driver will likely begin building a defense immediately after the incident. In most cases, these companies will do everything in their power to absolve them of any wrongdoing. However, if the accident was caused by the bus driver, bus company, or bus manufacturer's negligence, you may be entitled to fair compensation for your injuries. The El Paso bus accident attorney at Harmonson Law Firm can help you understand your options and create a plan of action. We have experience handling these very complex types of cases and can use this experience, plus our access to relevant resources, to fight for your rights.

Common Causes of Bus Accidents

Buses are a common form of transit for many El Paso residents, as well as individuals throughout the states of New Mexico, Texas, and Arizona. While most people never expect to be involved in a bus accident, such incidents are not as uncommon as they may seem. Even relatively minor bus accidents can have serious consequences for passengers and other people on the road. If the accident was a result of negligence, you shouldn't have to suffer on your own.

Some of the most common causes of bus accidents include:

  • Pedestrians or bicyclists illegally using the bus lane
  • Buses veering to avoid collisions
  • Driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol
  • Other vehicles blocking the bus lane
  • Passenger distractions and/or distracted driving
  • Driver sleepiness or medical illness
  • Reckless driving, including speeding
  • Sudden brake, tire, or mechanical failures
  • Unsafe road conditions/dangerous road design
  • Unpredictable drivers
  • Sudden lane changes and/or improper turns
  • Insufficient training or improper supervision

Buses do not move as nimbly as cars and can be put into a compromising position at any time. For this reason, it is especially important that bus operators drive carefully and always follow the rules of the road. When they fail to do so, their negligence can result in catastrophic consequences.

Who Is Liable for Your Bus Accident Injuries?

After a bus accident occurs, it's important that you seek medical attention right away. The next step is consulting with an experienced attorney who can help you determine what factors led to the accident.
