But serious accidents involving buses do occur, such as the recent crash involving a tractor trailer and a bus on I-64 in Virginia in which at least 24 people were injured.

Your Bus Accident Lawsuit
Bus accidents may only account for a fraction of the serious and fatal motor vehicle accidents that occur each year on American roads. But these tragedies have far-reaching consequences.
In many bus accidents, operator error is the primary culprit; those driver mistakes happen due to inexperience, fatigue or inattention. In other cases, bus accidents are caused by faulty parts or by other vehicles, such was the case on Aug. 30, 2018 when at least eight people were killed and dozens injured after a truck blew a tire, causing it to go out of control and cross a median, colliding with a Greyhound bus. And in other cases, such as the Virginia crash, the accident was evidently the fault of a tractor trailer driver who lost control of his vehicle.
Our bus accident attorneys will thoroughly investigate the facts of your case to determine the parties truly responsible, and ensure full financial compensation for you and other victims.
