Turn to a School Bus Accident Attorney if Your Loved One Was Injured in a Crash
School Bus Accident Lawyer in Arlington Gets Results for Clients School bus wrecks often cause death or catastrophic injury, primarily because they do not have mandated safety interiors like cars do. They are usually not equipped with seat belts and do not have the sufficient padding on the metal frames of the seats. Also, since there are no seat belts, passenger can be propelled down the isles impacting seats and other passengers as they slide down the isles.
Buses have a lot of weight so when they impact cars they usually do not come to a sudden stop so the impact is greatly absorbed. However, when the bus comes in contact with a stationary object such as a tree or concrete bridge support, the injuries to the occupants will normally be much more severe due to insufficient safety equipment on the bus.
In case of fire on a bus, it is very dangerous because of the limited exits and large number of passengers.
Buses have crashes when other drivers fail to give them the right of way. It is difficult for buses to maneuver and avoid collisions. They also have collisions when they are distracted by their young passengers acting rowdy. Bus drivers are also subject to the usual causes for collision such as texting, talking on the cell phone, and fatigue. Bus drivers are normally employed by the government so their liability is limited by the Texas Tort's Claim Act.
