Common Causes of School Bus Accidents
As with other personal injury cases, it is important to establish how the school bus accident occurred in the first place. The most common causes of school bus collisions include, but are not limited to, the following:
- Distracted driving
- Driver fatigue
- Violation of hours of service regulations
- Aggressive driving
- Defective vehicle
- Driving while intoxicated
- Dangerous road conditions
An experienced attorney can evaluate the facts of the case, gather evidence, and work with a network of specialists in the field to help build a strong case in your favor.
Who Is Accountable in a Seattle School Bus Accident?
Not every auto accident is a cut and dry case. For example, there may be only one party responsible for the collision, or there may be several parties. If the bus driver drove recklessly by speeding or simply not paying attention, he or she may be liable for negligence, but in the event that the school board failed to properly screen and train the driver as well, they may also be held responsible for the subsequent accident.
