Why Do Buses Crash?

Across the nation, there are just south of 60,000 accidents involving buses every year, according to the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) data from 1975 to recent years. Although circumstances surrounding each bus accident are unique, most accidents involving buses are 100-percent preventable if not for negligence by the at-fault party. Three of the most common causes of bus crashes in the U.S. include:

  • Negligence by the bus driver/operator: Bus drivers who drive fatigued, tired, or sleepy due to exceeding their legally acceptable service hours on the road can be a danger to others. Drivers who text and drive, use the phone and drive, or are otherwise distracted are also dangerous.
  • Negligence by the bus company/owner: Proper maintenance and upkeep are important to keeping a bus in safe operating order. Absent regular maintenance and needed upkeep, buses can become unsafe to operate, putting passengers at risk.
  • Negligence by other drivers on the road: Buses sharing the road with passenger cars and commercial vehicles are subject to collide with these vehicles, often as a result of the negligence of other drivers.

Bus accidents are devastating for everyone involved, permanently altering the course of victims’ lives and negatively impacting their financial future.
