San Antonio Bus Accident Lawyer Stands Up for Injured Riders
Compassionate representation for traffic accidents and slip and fall cases
VIA Metropolitan Transit and other bus lines provide transportation alternatives for residents of San Antonio and Bexar County. Buses are economical. They also ease congestion and help the environment by getting cars of the road. However, when judged by accidents per passenger miles traveled, buses are not appreciably safer than passenger cars. If you are injured riding a bus or in a traffic accident with a bus, you can trust the Law Offices of Marion W. Cain, P.C. to pursue full compensation. We provide personalized attention that gives you peace of mind, while working diligently to deliver results.
Common safety issues with bus transportation in San Antonio
Whether the vehicle is a public transit bus, a private charter, a school bus, or a shuttle, the primary safety concern is the skill and attention of the bus driver. An operator’s performance is a key issue, since many accidents can be traced back to:
- Aggressive driving
- Driver fatigue
- Improper training
- Distracted driving
But the bus equipment itself is often suspect, causing accidents due to:
- Improper maintenance
- Defective parts
- Lack of passenger restraints
The lack of passenger seat belts is particularly troubling on express bus routes that travel I-10, I-35, and US 281. Highway-speed bus crashes are especially dangerous because passengers are not retrained.
However, even when a bus is not involved in a collision, passengers can still sustain personal injuries due to:
- Sudden, abrupt starts or stops
- Slips/trips and falls, caused by spills or debris on the bus
No matter the cause of your injury, we work diligently to assemble the evidence to prove liability and get you the compensation you deserve.
