Fatal Bus Accidents

Multiple types of buses may become involved in collisions with other vehicles, including school buses, city buses, private "coach" buses, and long-distance buses operated by companies such as Greyhound. Because buses are so much larger than passenger cars and trucks, bus accidents often result in catastrophic injuries or death for the occupants of other vehicles. Pedestrians who are struck by buses may suffer fatal injuries, and these accidents may occur because bus drivers were distracted, under the influence of alcohol or drugs, or did not have the proper training.

In many bus accident cases, the bus company or bus driver may be held liable for the accident and the resulting injuries or fatalities. For example, if a bus driver is speeding or driving recklessly and causes an accident, the bus company that employs them may be held responsible. A bus company may also be liable for fatal accidents that are caused by mechanical failures that occur because the proper maintenance was not performed.

Wrongful Deaths in Train Accidents

While bus accidents can be dangerous, they pale in comparison to accidents involving trains. Because trains are massive, they are very likely to inflict fatal injuries when they collide with other vehicles or when they strike people on foot. Train accidents can occur in a variety of situations, but they most commonly take place at railroad crossings. Cars that stop on train tracks or are unable to cross tracks safely may be struck by trains, causing severe damage to a vehicle and potentially inflicting fatal injuries on a driver and passengers. Problems with trains or tracks may also lead to train derailments.

Train accidents may occur because of unsafe railroad crossings or negligence by train operators. If a crossing does not have the proper warning signs, or if equipment such as lights and barriers do not function correctly, drivers may be placed at risk of being struck by a train when crossing the tracks. If a train company fails to properly maintain its equipment or takes shortcuts when it comes to safety, it may be held liable for any resulting accidents. In some cases, the government entity responsible for maintaining railroad tracks or railroad crossings may be held at fault if an accident occurs because of its negligence.
