Bus Driver Negligence

Causes of Bus Accidents
In many cases, bus-related accidents result from bus driver negligence. Bus drivers have a responsibility to remain alert and drive with care to ensure the safety of their passengers and fellow motorists. When they fail to do this, the following may occur:
- Dangerous lane changes
- Swerving in and out of traffic
- Tailgating other motorists
A bus driver who fails to exercise proper caution while operating his or her vehicle may crash into other drivers. Since buses have a substantial size advantage over most automobiles, the victim in the crash may suffer greater damage than the bus, which means that the individual may sustain serious injuries depending on the severity of the crash.
Fortunately, victims of bus driver negligence may have legal options. If you or your loved one suffered an injury after a negligent bus driver crashed into your vehicle, contact the Milwaukee car accident attorneys of Habush Habush & Rottier S.C. ® at 800-242-2874 to learn about holding the bus driver accountable for his or her negligence.
