Bus Accident Lawyer in Arkansas
Not very person who is a resident of Iowa or visiting from another state or country has a motor vehicle to get to and from destinations. Many of these people rely on commercial bus services to get around.
Buses are also extremely common vehicles for the purposes of transporting children to and from school in the Hawkeye State. The large number of passengers that can be accommodated with buses means that the vehicles must be regularly maintained and operated by experienced professionals.
When the individual or entity that owns a bus neglects to properly care for the vehicle or does not use due diligence in hiring a driver, it can result in a devastating crash or other accident in which innocent people can suffer highly serious injuries. Need an Injury Lawyer Iowa represents individuals who sustained severe injuries or whose loved ones were killed in bus crashes all over Iowa.
Common Causes of Bus Accidents in Iowa
As commercial motor vehicles, buses are required to meet certain standards and also have insurance policies with much higher limits than traditional passenger vehicles. The specific cause of a bus accident is not always clear-cut, and independent investigations may be required to secure important evidence that proves such common causes as:
- Lack of maintenance
- Equipment defects
- Distracted driving
- Driver fatigue
- Inclement weather
- Unsafe road conditions
- Other drivers
Victims in bus crashes can sustain any one of a number of catastrophic injuries, such as spinal cord injuries, traumatic brain injuries (TBIs), or paralysis. Injuries that are more severe than common fractures (broken bones) can require much longer periods of recovery, and some victims are completely unable to return to their regular jobs—and some might even be unable to maintain any regular employment at all.
Need an Injury Lawyer Iowa believes victims are entitled to full and fair compensation for the injuries that result from these accidents. Our firm can fight to get you compensation for all of your medical expenses, lost income, and other damages such as your pain and suffering.
