Bus Accidents

Focused on Client Needs Since 1946


Negligent Oversight, Poor Bus Design, Maintenance Problems

City buses, tour buses, school buses, charter buses and commercial bus lines have an obligation to transport passengers safely. They also have an obligation to other vehicles on the road. A bus accident can cause serious injuries to passengers, to pedestrians, and to those in other vehicles that share the road.

Bus Accident Lawyers

There are many different potential causes of a bus accident. At Gray Ritter Graham in St. Louis, our personal injury lawyers work quickly and thoroughly to determine all causes and find all potential sources of liability.

  • Our investigations of bus accidents often reveal bad hiring and supervision practices that allow unqualified drivers to be behind the wheel. The driver may have a criminal record, a history of drug abuse, or may have an expired medical certificate. From school buses to tour buses, driver competence is essential.
  • Poor bus design can result in an unsafe environment for passengers. Every bus should have what is called “survival space” — roof and side supports that make the bus crashworthy and prevent catastrophic passenger injuries.
  • Was appropriate maintenance performed? Every bus should have a maintenance log that describes all maintenance activities. For example, failing to check the brakes at regular intervals is negligence and can cause an accident.

Our attorneys look for every cause in a bus accident.
