Buses can be difficult to maneuver, especially in adverse weather conditions. As a result, bus drivers have an obligation to obey traffic laws and operate the vehicle safely. Unfortunately, in some cases, intoxicated bus drivers cause accidents that result in serious injuries to passengers as well as others on the road. If you or someone close to you was harmed due to an intoxicated bus driver’s negligence, we can help. At the Law Offices of Robert Dixon, we are committed to pursuing the compensation you deserve in your case.
In a study, “Risk Factors Associated with Bus Accident Severity in the United States,” the Journal of Safety Research found that four percent of drivers were found to have been driving under the influence, speeding, or driving while drowsy. While this number is low, given the sheer size, height, and weight of a bus, accidents involving these vehicles can have devastating consequences.
