Common Causes of Greyhound Bus Accidents

Greyhound bus accidents have occurred for a variety of reasons. Defective parts can lead to malfunctions in transit that cause accidents. Poorly trained drivers may make serious errors, or the Greyhound bus company may have failed to properly vet a driver before allowing him or her to take over a bus route. Many Greyhound buses cover long routes, and driver fatigue may also contribute to accidents.

Greyhound offers transportation to the public as a paid service, and so falls under common carrier laws. Common carriers have higher duties of care on the road than other drivers because they offer transportation as a professional service. Generally, a common carrier is liable for any injuries and damages that occur due to the actions of their employees or failures of their vehicles and/or equipment.

Why You Need an Attorney

The average person with no legal experience will likely not have the resources, energy, or time to handle a Greyhound bus accident lawsuit without legal representation. Hiring a bus accident attorney not only increases the chance of succeeding with the lawsuit, but also increases the chance of securing more compensation than a plaintiff could secure alone. Many Greyhound bus accidents will lead to insurance claims, and most plaintiffs lack the personal experience properly dealing with insurance companies in such cases. Hiring an attorney allows a plaintiff to instead focus on recovery while the attorney handles insurance companies and litigation.

Possible Damages in a Greyhound Bus Accident Lawsuit

A Greyhound bus can cause devastating damage. The plaintiff in a Greyhound bus accident case can secure various types of compensation.

  • Plaintiffs can claim compensation for any and all medical expenses resulting from a Greyhound accident.
  • If a plaintiff must miss work during recovery after a Greyhound accident, he or she can claim compensation for the lost wages.
  • If a Greyhound bus accident damages or destroys a plaintiff’s personal property, the plaintiff can claim repair or replacement costs as damages in the lawsuit.
  • Plaintiffs also have the right to compensation for their pain and suffering. The jury hearing the case will assess the plaintiff’s injuries and consider expert witness testimony to determine fair compensation for physical pain and mental anguish.
  • Punitive damages are a possibility if the facts of the case show that the defendant’s negligence exceeds the scope of typical negligence or involved any criminal activity.
