Bus Accidents

Powerful Advocacy for Over 15 Years in the Greater Seattle Area

Lynnwood Bus Accident Attorneys

Bus accidents are uniquely dangerous accidents, and bus accident claims are uniquely complicated. Buses offer incredible convenience, but when accidents happen, many on the road are left vulnerable to serious injuries. If you’ve been injured in a bus accident, it’s time to consult with an experienced Lynnwood, Washington, bus accident attorney.

Dangers Inherent to Bus Accidents

There are several unique dangers that are inherent to bus accidents, including:

  • The immense size and weight of passenger buses mean that the impact of any ensuing accidents will also likely be immense.
  • Buses must enter and exit traffic frequently and must make frequent stops – both of which increase the risk of accidents happening.
  • Buses rarely have the same safety features that passenger vehicles do, including a seatbelt for every seat and passenger airbags.

The Bus Driver

Bus drivers are professional drivers who are governed by exacting rules, restrictions, and guidelines that are in place to help minimize accident rates. Many bus accidents are the result of bus driver error and/or negligence, which can include all of the following forms:

  • Distraction – Driving a bus is a huge responsibility that requires complete concentration. When a bus driver allows himself or herself to be distracted by anything other than driving safely, he or she increases the chances that a bus accident will happen.
  • Exhaustion – Bus drivers often put in long hours behind the wheel, which leaves them more prone to drowsy driving. Drowsy drivers experience many of the same impairments that impaired drivers do, and they can be just as dangerous.
  • ImpairmentDrunk drivers cause some of the deadliest accidents on our roadways, and when the drunk driver in question is behind the wheel of a bus, the element of danger increases significantly.
  • Speed – Excess speed makes any ensuing accidents not only more dangerous but also more likely. Bus drivers are responsible for transporting their passengers safely to their destinations, and excess speed has no safe role in this task.
  • AggressionAggressive drivers are dangerous by intent and tend to engage in multiple dangerous driving practices at any given moment. These can include tailgating, zipping in and out of traffic, ignoring traffic lights and signs, refusing to yield the right-of-way, passing illegally, speeding dangerously, and more.

Bus driver negligence leaves everyone on our roads at increased risk of being injured in dangerous bus accidents.

What Our Clients Say

The Napier & George team went above and beyond my expectations to get my case settled. They got me a maximum top dollar settlement. I appreciate the effort by the team. I highly recommend!

Dale W.

Amazing! From the moment I retained Napier & George I breathed a sigh of relief. From that moment on I didn’t have to worry about insurance people calling me trying to rush me into settling early or trying to convince me that I was better. I could focus on me. When I told providers who was representing me they even said you have the best in the business. Quite the contrast in when I told them who my PIP provider was. If you want peace of mind go with Napier & George.

Alexander L.
