A tour bus swerved off the highway in North Texas last week and caused 2 people to lose their lives and dozens left injured. The driver was found to have been involved in another bus accident 15 years ago where he struck and killed a person who was standing on the side of the highway helping in another accident. In last week’s accident, the tour bus was taking a group of seniors to a casino.
Tour bus companies and drivers are responsible for the safety of the passengers they are transporting. While laws requiring seat belts on buses are still finding their legs, there is still a responsibility of the tour bus companies and their employees to ensure the riders arrive safely at their destination. Tour buses and transit buses in Arizona see thousands of passengers each day and once in a while we will hear about an accident that sent dozens to the hospital. If you or a family member is injured in a bus accident, you could have a strong case to collect money in a personal injury claim. You could collect to cover your medical costs, time away from work, and pain and suffering.
