The Dangers of Double-Decker Buses
Commercial buses of any kind are uniquely designed vehicles that take a certain level of experience and training to operate. Double-decker buses are no different. Whether the bus is an open-topped sightseeing bus or double-tall commuter, double-deckers present a number of dangers that the bus operator and company must take precautions against. The most common types of accidents that can occur with double-deckers include:
- Tipping over accidents
- Roof crush from hitting overpasses
- Pedestrian accidents
- Bicycle crash
- Single-vehicle collision
- Failure to yield
- Distracted driving
Navigating narrow city streets or crowded highways without considerable care for the weight and height of a bus with two stories can have devastating consequences. However, in the aftermath of a collision, you do not have to bear responsibility for creating your own claim against the negligent party. Contact a skilled Seattle double decker bus accident attorney to handle the investigation, paperwork, and negotiations on your behalf.
Who Was At Fault in a Double Decker Bus Accident in Seattle?
In many cases, accidents involving a bus with two stories can be narrowed down to bus driver error; however, the bus company, dispatcher, and shift manager may also have a hand in the resulting collision. Whether the responsibility lies with a careless individual operating the bus, improper training, or negligent vehicle maintenance, it is highly recommended that you speak with a lawyer immediately following your accident to ensure that the opposing party does not take advantage of your injured or grieving state.
